Say What!

“It’s been really cool to see the evolution of iRacing, I’ve been on this for so long now. It was a game. It was a lot of fun for me and my friends to get on here and race, but now, I guess it is kind of our job right now with the NASCAR stuff on Sundays and the Outlaws coming on board (on FS1) to run Sprint Cars. It’s really cool to see iRacing capitalizing on this moment of everyone being at home. It gives us something to do and it’s really fun to race against competitive drivers.” Christopher Bell winning the Charlotte NC iRacing WoO feature

  • Knoxville Raceway IA)Times are changing for everyone in the world right now. All of us at Knoxville Raceway certainly understand that. We don't know what the future holds, but we do know that when these social distancing and small gathering restrictions are lifted, we're going to have Saturday nights filled with racing, friends, family and fun once again. Possibly bigger than ever. In the meantime, many of our partners are feeling the pain of closures, serving restrictions, layoffs and more. It's important that we remember that these companies and individuals have supported us through the great times and we need to support them now. Press Releases3/19
