I just attended my 34th Knoxville Nationals and just like every year before, I can't wait to go back again. I love the people, food and of course the racing. If you have never been to Knoxville during the Nationals and are a racing fan, this is a must for your bucket list.

The grandstands need another elevator. There are a lot of disabled people that always have to go to the 2nd floor on there scooters - sit clear at the end.

As car racing is a declining sport you would think that a track would do all they could to make things pleasant and convenient for their audience but this one sure does not! I had purchased 2 tickets online for both Friday and Saturday night at a price of $179.00 but when we got there Friday night we were told... More

Got a chance to take in the weekly racing program at Knoxville Raceway recently. I have been here before and try to make it whenever I can. Three of us made the trek (about 5 hour drive) and it was well worth it. There is a reason it is the 'Sprint Car Capitol' of the world. They do a great... More

I get a chance to go to the raceway several times a year; it is a great place to enjoy Sprint car races. They have a great venue.

We went to the Vintage Flat Track Motorcycle races this past weekend...fun! This was my first trip to the venue, and I must say that things are very well thought out and designed to accommodate the masses. The grandstands are set up with separate areas that are family friendly, so enjoy taking your kids out for dirt track action. Upper... More

We have recently returned home from another wonderful trip to the Knoxville Nationals. We drag the camper up the highway 8 hours and stay 8 days camping close to the track. We try and make it to the 360 Nationals and then stay for the 410 sprints on the following week. While in Knoxville we visit Pella and Des Moines... More

It's the both the racing and the... More

Knoxville Raceway is home to premier dirt track Sprint Car racing . . and there is no place like it. Combine small town Iowa, friendliness, racing, a fair-type atmosphere during Nationals, and EXCITEMENT and you've got a winner. Lot's to do in the area with Lake Red Rock, the Iowa State Fair, Neil Smith, Pella . . . can't be... More
