Never been there but it looks like

Knoxville Drag Strip - General Rules 1. All cars must meet general safety requirements as per the IHRA rule book.

I'd say 1/8 mile by the looks of the dial-ins in the pics.

If this is the one you were talking about.

Default knoxville drag strip

Hey i just wanted to say that knoxville drag way is a great track it is a 1/8 mile and concrete all the way and they prep the track good. just get on your breaks quick because the shut down is short but you will love it. I have a friend that runs the 4.70 class their and its fine but his first trip he didnt get on the breaks quick enough , but all ended well There is also another drag strip in the knoxville area but i havnt been to it but it is also eighth mile. good luck
