Knoxville Raceway has confirmed the dates and venues for the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge qualifiers in 2016.

The trio of events will be the only races at which American sprint car drivers can qualify for the 23rd annual SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge, to be held on Friday, Aug. 12, 2016, during the 56th annual FVP Knoxville Nationals.

  • Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015 – International Sprintcar Series, Robertson Holden Int’l Speedway, Palmerston North, New Zealand

“We are very pleased to once again partner with Greg Mosen at Western Springs, Bruce Robertson at Palmerston North, and David Mills at Warrnambool on these qualifiers,” said Knoxville Raceway Race Director John McCoy. “It is my understanding that Americans Steve Kinser and Brad Loyet have already made their intentions known that they will be venturing ‘Down Under’ in order to qualify for the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge. All American sprint car drivers are encouraged to compete in one of these three qualifiers in order to represent the USA in mid-August. I would also like to take this opportunity to personally thank the good people at SPEED SPORT Magazine for all of their support of this event, whose mission is uniting nations through motorsports.”
