Knoxville, IA – Struggling to find the perfect Christmas present for that sprint car fan in your life? Tickets for the second floor viewing area of the National Sprint Car Museum are now available to museum members and supporters for all four nights of the 50th annual Goodyear Knoxville Nationals presented by Lucas Oil, August 11-14, 2010. The four-day ticket package costs $380, and allows the ticket-holder to sit in a non-smoking, air-conditioned environment on the second floor of the museum for the Wednesday-Saturday national championships. Only 150 tickets will be sold each night for the second floor by the non-profit museum foundation.

Second floor tickets are available for all racing events on the Marion County Fairgrounds, including Knoxville’s non-winged, 360- and 410-cubic-inch sprint car national championships. In addition, a limited number of 5-seat quarter-suites, 10-seat half-suites, and 20-seat full suites are available on the museum’s third and fourth floors for the 2010 Knoxville Raceway racing season. The World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series is tentatively scheduled to invade the half-mile dirt track for the inaugural three-day Hall of Fame Classic on June 3-4-5, which coincides with the 21st annual National Sprint Car Hall of Fame induction weekend. The popular Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals will conclude the 2010 Knoxville Raceway season on September 30 and October 1-2.
