Hall of Fame Classic Weekend Two Weeks Away!

From Bill W

Make plans now for Hall of Fame Classic Weekend at Knoxville Raceway June 3-5! Three exciting nights of racing action are planned featuring the World of Outlaws series, but there is much more in store!

The Thursday, June 3 show features full programs for both the World of Outlaws and the highly competitive 305 sprint cars. Finishing in the top 20 will be paramount for the World of Outlaws heading into Friday.

Friday, June 4, the intensity raises a bar as the top 20 feature finishers with the WoO on Thursday, will be inverted for a special feature unlike anything you will see on the WoO series this year! The remaining drivers will compete in a pair of B mains to determine the final four starters in what should prove to be some exciting action!

Also on Friday, the 18th Annual Masters Classic will run a full program for drivers over the age of 50. The event will feature time trials, heats and features. Eight-time Knoxville track champion and all-time feature winner, Danny Lasoski, is already entered in the Mark Burch Motorsports #1m, and with the World of Outlaws in town, you need to stay tuned to the pre-entry list as it changes by the day!

On Saturday afternoon, June 5, the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum will host their 21st Annual Induction Banquet. The banquet will be hosted by Dave Argabright and Pat Sullivan. It will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Inductees this year include Bobbie Adamson, Hank Arnold, Fred Linder, Frank Riddle, Hal Robson, Herman Schurch, Clyde Adams, Casey Luna, Don Shepherd, George Bentel, Fred Brownfield and Ben Krasner. For more information on the banquet, contact the call the museum at 641-842-6176, or visit their web-site at www.sprintcarhof.com.

Saturday night, the World of Outlaws will race another full program, joined by the 360 sprint cars in their quest for the Knoxville Championship Cup! Racing each night starts with hot laps at 6:45 p.m.

Several notable names from around the country have indicated they will be racing at Knoxville in June for three nights of important preparations for the upcoming 50th Anniversary Goodyear Knoxville Nationals, held August 11-14, 2010.
