VanDam's worst finish here? Third place

BASSTrakk currently shows Kevin VanDam in third place. Incredibly, that would match VanDam's worst performance in an Elite Series event at Kentucky Lake.

 

He was well aware of those past performances here when he said at yesterday's weigh-in, "The worst I've ever done here is third. So I'm going to try to at least do that. After not going to the Classic last year, I want to have a strong finish to the season."

 

KVD won here in 2010 and 2008. He was second in 2009. He was third in 2006.
