The Knoxville Raceway will be selling hard liquor this season, pending approval from the City of Knoxville. There will be one booth at the Raceway that will have mixed drinks for sale when the season starts on April 21st.

Marketing Director Brian Stickel says that the Fair Board’s decision to allow the hard liquor sales fills a demand that people have wanted at the Raceway, and he considers it an extension of the service they provide with the entertainment they deliver every week. He says that they’ll have trained professional staff serving, and that they will continue to ensure that only those who are of age consume any alcohol at the Raceway.

The proposal will now go to the City of Knoxville for approval.
