David Knight is taking complete control of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series for 2008, winning his fourth race in five tries this season with a victory at the Acerbis Loretta Lynn's GNCC today in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. The pack is pushing hard behind him, but that is simply resulting in big battles behind the Red Bull KTM rider from the Isle of Man.

Once again, FMF Suzuki's Joshua Strang took second place, with his teammate Charlie Mullins third, making for an identical podium to the previous race in South Carolina. Knight took the win by about a minute over Strang.

Husqvarna's Glenn Kearney took fourth, his best finish yet on his new team. Kearney even moved past Mullins and into the third place position at one point.

Red Bull KTM's Nathan Kanney rallied back late in the race to take fifth, with Suzuki's Paul Whibley sixth and Am-Pro Yamaha's Jason Raines seventh. Jimmy Jarrett took eighth on his FMF Suzuki.

Then came Thad DuVall on his Am-Pro Yamaha, giving him his fourth win of the season in the XC2 Lites Class. DuVall topped Josh Weisenfels, Kailub Russell, Dustin Gibson and Justin Williamson for the class win.

Cory Buttrick was once again the top overall placing amateur with 12th overall in the Four-Stroke A Lites class.
