KNOXVILLE, Iowa (April 19, 2022) — With an outlook of plummeting temperatures and wind chills below freezing this weekend, World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series officials together with Knoxville Raceway staff have canceled the Xtream powered by Mediacom Showdown.

Precision Weather Service and local weather experts determined conditions would turn severe following heavy rain on Thursday, negatively affecting the fan and competitor experiences, which led officials to cancel today to prevent unnecessary travel.
