S1eptember 27th, 2012 - Jason entered the opening round of the 9th Annual Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals on Thursday evening at the Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa). A stout field of 80 of the nation's best drivers entered the event, and the night would start on a rough note for Jason as he failed to report to the scales after time trials, which resulted in his time being disallowed. As a result he started on the tail of the fourth heat race. Despite starting sixteenth he passed nine cars on his way to a seventh place finish. With only the top four cars transferring to the main event, Rauen ran the b-main, where he started fourteenth. He advanced a couple of spots in the b-main, but with only the top four finishers transferring to the feature his night ended early. Full results are available at
