Rain Alters Amoco Knoxville Nationals KNOXVILLE, IA (August 16) - Skoal Outlaw Series officials were forced to change the schedule of the 36th Annual Amoco Knoxville Nationals Friday when rain hit Knoxville Raceway. A steady mist fell throughout the afternoon and evening, making the legendary half-mile oval unsafe for racing. As a result, the Non-Qualifier's Program was cancelled. Five feature races will be run Saturday. Those races, to be televised live on TNN: The Nashville Network between 10 p.m. and midnight (EDT), will be lined up by points scored in the preliminary programs. Knoxville Raceway will host a $56,000 open event Sunday evening. All sprint cars entered in the Nationals will be eligible for that race except for the 24 racing in Saturday's championship feature.
