Wet Weather, Lack of Practice Time Leads to Cancellation of Races Tonight

The Knoxville Raceway has postponed tonight’s opening night. Race Director John McCoy says they don’t want to make the first night of action a question mark for drivers. More than six inches of rain has fallen in the past couple weeks at the Raceway, eliminating practice time. McCoy says with a new tire for the 410 class, six rookies, and a projected temperature of 43 degrees, opening night would be a large hurdle for the Raceway and their drivers. Pella Motors Race For Your Schools Night has been moved to April 27th.
