Rain Cuts Mediacom Shootout to One-Day Event at Knoxville

Saldana leads ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ into Sprint Car racing’s showcase venue on Saturday

KNOXVILLE, Iowa – June 10, 2011 – Constant rain has forced World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and Knoxville Raceway officials to cancel Friday night’s opening round of the Mediacom Shootout.

The Mediacom Shootout will resume on Saturday, with hot laps taking the green flag at 6:45 p.m.

 

Fans who can’t be in attendance can watch the action online at DIRTVision.com for only $14.95.

 

Joey Saldana, whose father Joe won the 1970 Knoxville Nationals, is leading the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings heading into Saturday’s action, with four-time champion Donny Schatz, 20-time champion Steve Kinser, and 2010 champion Jason Meyers in hot pursuit.
