2013_Season ChampionshipThis Saturday night is the end of the season for our weekly Lucas Oil – Knoxville Championship Cup Series (KCCS) sprint cars!  To celebrate the end of the season and the crowning of our track champions, Knoxville Raceway will have a cookout in the infield after the races, which means FREE food for everyone!!!  So be sure to come to the pit area at the end of the night! (Sounds like there are a little over 2,000 burgers to be made, so food available until that runs out.)

The point race in the 410 class is a good one, and it will come down to the wire in the A-Main this Saturday night.  Bronson Maeschen has a 59 point lead over Ian Madsen, and 66 points over Terry McCarl.  With a maximum of 260 points up for grabs (140 quick time, 20 heat race win, 200 feature) the championship is up for grabs. *All teams get 100 points minimum for time trials, so basically 160 points up for grabs if everyone shows up.
