While it seems like the racing season at the Knoxville Raceway just ended, the raceway has released the 2012 schedule with a few tweaks. The season opener will be April 21st . There will be two opportunities for fans to see the World of Outlaws the first will be April 28th and the second will be June ninth. Some of the bigger events have been given a few subtle changes. While the 360 Nationals will remain the same on August 2nd-4th, the USAC Non-Wing Knoxville Nationals will be the same night of the 360 Nationals finals and Sunday August fifth will be a Prelude To The 410 Nationals with the 52nd Annual Knoxville Nationals August 8th-11th. Some other minor changes are the Masters Classic is no longer on the schedule, and there is just one regular sprint car race following the Knoxville Nationals.
