Knaus' journey to becoming Jimmie Johnson's crew chief started in the grassroots midwest wrenching on his father's Late Model racecars. That short track grind taught many valuable lessons that he took with him on an unlikely journey to the heart of Stock Car Auto Racing, Charlotte, N.C. Knaus speaks of the failures in his first attempts to get into NASCAR, and how it landed him back home, and far away from his dream of becoming a big-time crew chief.

iRacing>>>real racing why? It doesn't take 10 laps to clean up wrecks in iRacing. It doesn't take 30 minutes to get all the sprint cars pushed off in iRacing, only to have somebody tip their car over 2 laps into the green flag, spending 20 minutes getting that cleaned up & another 20 to get them all pushed off again.
