Mother Nature has been a thorn in the side of Knoxville Raceway all season.The only wheels turned were the push trucks and they had to give up working the infield and officials made the call at around 7:30pm to declare the first night of the Knoxville Nationals a washout. Rain fell intermittently all day but got heavier as the evening went on. What that does to the schedule is a rare double show tonight weather pending at the Knoxville Raceway. At 7pm they are scheduled to run Wednesday’s show…then clear the stands and pits and run tonight’s show at around 11pm. If all goes smoothly and no weather delays…things should be wrapped up around 2am Saturday morning. You can hear all the action of two shows tonight beginning with Live Track Side at 5pm, M-R-N’s Winged Nation at 6pm, and then Race Night’s Live at 7pm on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA and kniakrls.com
