If you are going to be inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, you might as well come to Knoxville and win the Masters Classic. That is what Gary Wright did last night as he lapped all the way to second place and claimed an easy win in the 19th annual race for drivers 50 years of age and older. Get got the lead at lap eight and was never challenged. Brian Brown claimed the 360 show. The centerpiece of the weekend is this afternoon when 13 new names will be inducted to the Hall of Fame. Danny Lasoski, Gary Wright and Indy 500 winning car owner Andy Granitelli are just three of the 13 names that will be honored. You can hear the action tonight starting with Live Track Side at six, and Race Night’s Live at 7:30 on KNIA/KRLS and kniakrls.com.
