Weather Delays 45th Annual Knoxville Nationals to Sunday

Knoxville, IA -- August 13, 2005 -- Heavy rain overnight made it impossible for Knoxville Raceway officials to prepare the racetrack for Saturday's 45th Annual Knoxville Nationals, forcing the prestigious $140,000-to-win event to be delayed until Sunday.

In addition, the non-qualifiers show originally scheduled for Friday that was already delayed until Saturday afternoon will now be run at noon on Sunday.

Race director Ralph Capitani said the track was too dangerous to race on, and even if the persistent rain was to stop Saturday afternoon, there would not be enough time to work it into race condition.

The Nationals, schedule to air at 8 p.m. Central on SPEED Channel will be tape-delayed and carried at 8 p.m. Central on Aug. 20. Tonight, the network will air the 360 Nationals.
