    Default Knoxville Summernationals

    Thinking about making the drive from Davenport for this tomorrow. Anyone been there? Worth the 45 minute ride?!

    I've been there once. I have low expectations but it's less than an hour away and it's Super Late Models on a Tuesday. I think it's bigger than a half mile. I remember the facility being nicer than I expected, but that was 5 years ago.

    Last I knew it was still used for horse races during the fair, which is this week. It's a fairly flat track. Probably won't make race of the year, but it should be a decent show. I was fortunate enough to get a win there in the mid 90's. It's fast, but as the the saying goes, you can read the newspaper down the straightaways! As Shiny said, it's a late model race on a Tuesday night, enjoy!

    Looks very narrow, I think passing is going to be tough.

    I think you should go for sure...and then give us a report on it. Gary Webb ran 3rd at the fair races there two years ago so it can't be all bad. Probably similar to Owatonna.
