The most prestigious 360 winged sprint car race in the country starts in just two days!

The My Place Hotels 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank will feature more than 100 teams this year. The field is divided into two qualifying nights leading into Saturday’s championship finale.

A full entry list can be seen here. Australian James McFadden is working against the clock and COVID restrictions to get into the states in time to defend his title. He’ll have to battle perennial favorites like Brian Brown, Clint Garner, and Terry McCarl to get it done. Add in the track’s current 360 points leader, Carson McCarl, last week’s feature winner Lynton Jeffrey and a bevy of other stars.
