Windom, MN — (June 1, 2015) – What was once a one-night show for the FVP National Sprint League at I-80 Speedway has now become a huge two-day event! Thanks to promoter Joe Kosiski, Phil Durst of Durst Motorplex, and Huffman Productions, Inc., Thursday, July 30 and Friday, July 31 will be dubbed the “Road to Knoxville”, paying $5,000 to win the prelim and $10,000 to win the FVP National Sprint League finale.

That’s not all! In addition to the NSL, the Lucas Oil ASCS National Series will also be on the card, paying $3,000 to win the opener and $4,000 to win Friday’s finale. The unique format will offer several drivers the opportunity to pull “double duty”, racing both sprint car classes.

The event precedes Southern Iowa Speedweek, beginning at Knoxville Raceway with the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals August 6-8. The “Capitani Classic” at Knoxville will be Sunday, August 9. The FVP National Sprint League $20,000 to win Front Row Challenge will be Monday, August 10 at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. The 55th Annual FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores will wrap things up August 12-15.

In addition to the added purse, the timely date should add plenty of visitors as they travel the “Road to Knoxville”!

More details about the “Road to Knoxville” will be forthcoming. Stay tuned to the FVP National Sprint League at www.NationalSprintLeague.com, and on facebook and Twitter. The next FVP National Sprint League event will be Saturday, June 27 at the Knoxville Raceway where their Mid-Season Championship will pay $5,000 to win.
