Item 8.01 Other Events.

On page II-35 of the booklet containing the Notice of Annual Meeting To Be Held May 15, 2014, Proxy Statement, and 2013 Annual Report in the form that was first mailed to shareholders on April 4, 2014 ("Annual Meeting Booklet"), Knight Transportation, Inc. (the "Company") provided a narrative description to the tabular information on director compensation. Such narrative inadvertently omitted certain fees for committee chairs and members. The tabular information provided was correct. This error was discovered after the Annual Meeting Booklet was printed, but before the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the "Proxy Statement') was filed. The Company updated the Proxy Statement to correct this error before filing. This Form 8-K is being filed to provide notice of the following fees for committee members and chairs, which replaces the second paragraph under "Narrative to Director Compensation" in the Annual Meeting Booklet.

Under the Current Director Compensation Plan, in addition to the $50,000 retainer discussed above, the following retainers were paid to our Outside Directors: the Chair of the Audit Committee received an annual fee of $10,000 payable 50% in cash and 50% in Common Stock; the Chair of the Compensation Committee received an annual fee of $6,000 payable 50% in cash and 50% in Common Stock; the Chair of the Nominating Committee received an annual fee of $5,000 payable 50% in cash and 50% in Common Stock; and each committee member received an annual fee of $2,500 payable 50% in cash and 50% in Common Stock. In addition, one-time cash payments were paid to the Chair and members of our Audit Committee in recognition of the additional time commitment required throughout 2013 to (i) prepare for and attend special meetings of the Audit Committee and (ii) to meet with management and outside consultants regarding internal financial controls, accounting, audit, and related financial matters. For this special recognition, the Audit Committee Chair received $10,000 and each Audit Committee member received $5,000, both of which were approved by the Compensation Committee and payable in cash on August 8, 2013. No other fees were paid for attendance at Board and Board committee meetings during 2013.

There were no other changes to the Annual Meeting Booklet.
