From Knoxville Raceway
KNOXVILLE, IA (July 6, 2021) – Wolfe Eye Clinic has partnered with Knoxville Raceway to sponsor the qualifying night of the 60th NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s on Thursday, August 12th, 2021. The 102 year-old Iowa-born medical and surgical eye care entity will also sponsor the Wolfe Eye Clinic Start Line throughout the season.
As part of Wolfe Eye Clinic’s presence at Knoxville Raceway, they will be offering a chance for race fans to win free LASIK laser eye surgery by entering to win at their sponsorship booth in the fan zone throughout the Knoxville Nationals.
”We are looking forward to spending time this summer with our patients and staff at one of Iowa’s most iconic venues. This sponsorship has been in the making for some time and what better year than 2021 to make it happen,” said Kassandra Trenary, Director of Marketing at Wolfe Eye Clinic. “We love supporting good things happening in Iowa, and Knoxville Raceway is a perfect place for that.“
Wolfe Eye Clinic Qualifying Night will, along with Wednesday’s qualifying results, determine the starting 16 cars in the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s finale. The Wolfe Eye Clinic Start Line, where the leader can accelerate and officially start the race, will be utilized for every sprint car race held at Knoxville Raceway in 2021, including the Knoxville Nationals.
“We’re excited to have a new partner in Wolfe Eye Clinic, not only for sprint car racing’s most prestigious event, but throughout the entire 2021 season as the official start line sponsor,” said Kendra Jacobs, Marketing Director at Knoxville Raceway. “Wolfe Eye Clinic is the absolute best at what they do and, appropriately, they’re teaming up with us to put a spotlight on sprint car drivers who are the absolute best at what they do.”
Wolfe Eye Clinic Qualifying Night will consist of half of the total cars entered in the 2021 Knoxville Nationals. The night will see each team trying to earn a perfect 500 score through their qualifying, heat race and feature event efforts. The top 16 teams in points, between both Wolfe Eye Clinic Qualifying Night and BRANDT Professional Agriculture Qualifying Night on Wednesday, August 11, will be locked-in to Saturday’s potentially $200,000-to-win finale.
Teams competing on Thursday’s Wolfe Eye Clinic Qualifying Night include defending Knoxville Raceway track champion, and Wolfe Eye Clinic sponsored driver Brian Brown. Knoxville Raceway will continue to update entries and which night each team qualifies here.
