Will the Goodyear Blimp be here for the 50th Goodyear Knoxville Nationals presented by Lucas Oil next year? It’s a possibility, as the Knoxville Raceway is partnering with the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for the title sponsorship of the Knoxville Nationals for the next three years, according to Knoxville Raceway marketing Director Brian Stickel. Justin Fantozzi is marketing manager of global race tires for Goodyear. He told KNIA/KRLS News the partnership is a great opportunity for both the Raceway and Goodyear. The Knoxville Nationals, held each August, is considered the premier sprint car racing event worldwide.
