Knight stayed close enough to the NAU guys to unleash his kick in the final minute to get the win.
After the race, he said he wasn't even feeling good today and at his best today.
"I feel fantastic, "said Knight to flotrack after the race. "My name is now up there with the greats. My parents came out to see me, whenever they come out I have a great race."
"It was my first time racing the Allabama guys so I didn't know what was going to happen. I knew the NAU guys were serious, serious guys."
He added that he was cramping up 4k in but had to "suck it up".
"To be honest, I don't know how much I had left (at the end) as I was little off and cramping up."
