Just as the push truck drivers got the track ironed in hot were just about to start, rain came pouring down on the Knoxville Raceway and continued for around an hour before officials decided to cancel opening night at the half-mile. A near full pit of 410s, 360s, and 305s were on hand to usher in the 2012 season. Next Saturday many of the Knoxville weekly drivers will start their season while the World of Outlaws put on their first Knoxville show of the season.
