Memorial Day weekend is often called the biggest race weekend on the calendar. Formula One will run its big show in Monaco, the Indianapolis 500 will also get the green flag and NASCAR runs its longest race of the season in the Coca-Cola 600. But all those races are Sunday. Tonight, the Knoxville Raceway gets the weekend started with a weekly show of all three sprint car classes. Last week McKenna Hasse made history becoming the first female to win a sprint car feature in the 62 year history of the track. Danny Lasoski padded his points lead after finishes of first and second in the last two weeks in the 410s, Clint Garner, who is back in the 360s, has a slim ten point lead over Nate Van Haaften, and Chris Walraven owns a 20 point lead over Stacey Alexander in the 305s.
