1 MONTH ALERT: World of Outlaws Set For April Doubleheader at Knoxville

Knoxville Raceway

For the first time in 11 years, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will make an April stop at Knoxville Raceway. And for the first time since 1980, it’ll be a two-day event.

The Greatest Show on Dirt invades Knoxville, IA, April 21-22, giving fans – and teams – an added two days of racing at the famed half-mile track.

Before the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals in August, teams will now have the two-day April event and June’s Brownell Big Guns Bash doubleheader to prepare for the “Granddaddy of ‘Em All” – which fans can vote for as one of USA Today’s 10 Best Motorsports Events.

Early Storylines:

SCHATZ RETURNS: Ten-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz returns to Knoxville Raceway as the 11-time and defending Knoxville Nationals champion.

The Fargo, ND driver also has 28 victories overall at Knoxville, currently sitting 10th on the all-time wins list – 13 of them being with the World of Outlaws. He and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team will be poised to keep their Knoxville Nationals momentum going and park their CARQUEST #15 parked in Victory Lane again.

ONE MORE SPOT: David Gravel, the 2019 Knoxville Nationals champion, was one spot sort of winning his second Knoxville Nationals title last year. He had the lead with five laps to go before Schatz slid by in Turn 3.

Gravel has had success at Knoxville in every car he’s driven, collecting 10 wins overall at the track and had claimed at least one win there every year from 2017 to 2021. After being shut out last year, he and Big Game Motorsports will be eager to change that this year.

LOCAL HEROES: As one of the most popular weekly dirt racing facilities in the country, Knoxville produces a healthy group of track regulars. Of them include five-time and defending 410 track champion Brian Brown, 2018 410 track champion Austin McCarl – who sat on the pole for the 2022 Knoxville Nationals – his father and seven-time 410 track champion Terry McCarl, 2021 410 track champion Davey Heskin, Matt Juhl, Justin Henderson and more.

Last year, Brown claimed his second World of Outlaws win at Knoxville in June.
