The Knoxville Nationals are the wildest 4 days of sprint car racing available. Just about a million dollars of pay outs for this event! It takes a little planning to make it a great trip, but well worth it if you love sprint cars. They have unusual dirt, so it is quite clean with very little dust. Knoxville is out... More

This is absolutely the Mecca for dirt car racing. The track, competitors, and amenities are the best in the world. The regular Saturday night program features three classes of sprint cars; 410, 360 and 305. The wide and relatively flat half mile track usually offers plenty of action and opportunities for passing.

The races were great. The only thing I would say is that the races were to start at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, and it was after 8:00 before they started. 1st time we have been there and we really had a great time. Going again this year.

We usually go to the Nationals each year. Love the races as they are exciting. The only thing that I really don't like is the seating. They have the seats marked off so close that you are packed in like sardines. Many people have almost come to blows over how much seat room you have. Purchasing extra seats for room... More

The excitement of the racing cars were a top adrenaline rush. It can be noisy and somewhat dirty with the dirt track but the good time out weighs that.

This is a great track to watch and race on. As a racer they are very organized with keeping the show moving and great track prep. They have great safety crews that where trained to deal with the cars that are racing there. I have been on both sides of this track as a racer and spectator in the stands... More

If you like races, especially sprint cars, this is the place to be. Race car drivers come from all over the world to race at this dirt track. The bleachers are hard so bring something soft to seat on, unless you have a suite reserved. The suites are warm with soft seats and plenty of room to lay out a... More

Spend every Saturday night during the season at the track. The drivers put on some of the best shows/races you will find. Knoxville raceway is one of the top tracks you will visit. Staff and management makes this all work every race. Thank you to all of the rated #1safety crew at the track.
