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.

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

I grew up watching sprint cars in Knoxville, spoiled me. I have traveled to Williams Grove, Eldora, and others only to wish I was home again. If you have the chance attend a race. My son thinks they have the greatest hotdogs.

We missed the races, but spent a great time going through the museum. Very well laid out with tons of interesting cars and stuff. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and well worth the price of admission.
