The Lucas Oil A-S-C-S National Series will run a show at the Knoxville Raceway tonight. That means anywhere from 60-65 360 sprint cars could be racing tonight as drivers get their last tune up before next week’s 360 Nationals, plus fans should expect a larger than normal 410 group with the 57th Annual 5 Hour Energy Knoxville Nationals less than two weeks away. On the A-S-C-S National tour, which is regarded as the top 360 series in the nation, defending champion Sam Hafertepe Jr. is leading Aaron Reutzel by 30 points despite Hafertepe winning twice as many races this season with ten to Reutzel’s five. Other recognizable names in town tonight will be Wayne Johnson, who won a 360 race at Knoxville earlier this season, Two Time Knoxville Raceway Champion Johnny Herrera, Blake Hahn, Matt Covington and several others along with the Knoxville weekly drivers and many drivers form the Nebraska 360 Series. You can hear the action on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA and kniakrls.com starting with Live Track Side at five and Race Night’s Live at seven.
