The 55th Annual FVP Knoxville Nationals will take place this weekend – August 12-15. It is presented by Casey’s General Store with other sponsors for different events. The first night of qualifying, which will take place tonight, August 12, is the RacingJunk.com Qualifying night. RacingJunk will also have a booth at the event all weekend.
The event kicked off this morning with a Fan Fair Forum and will continue to host events all day, including the Weld Racing Gokart Spectacular, and will lead up to the RacingJunk.com Qualifying Night at 7:15 p.m. The action will start back up on Thursday morning at 8 a.m. and the race weekend will go full speed until Sunday night.
In the last nine years, Donny Schatz has won the Knoxville Nationals with Tony Stewart’s Number 15 car. He, along with almost 100 other drivers, are registered to race this weekend at Knoxville Raceway.
The Knoxville Nationals have proved to provide intense and competitive racing in the past, and they will live up to their reputation again this year.
