Last weekend, Jesse Hockett and the VKCC Motorsports #75 racing team towed to Iowa's Knoxville Raceway to challenge the 410 Outlaw Sprints as part of the Iowa Gold Rush and the Raceway's 50th Anniversary program but early evening showers washed out the program. Now, Hockett will bolt in a 360 powerplant and race the 2003 Knoxville ASCS 360 Nationals.

"I am so excited to be back at Knoxville for the 360 nationals. VKCC Motorsports has a new Maxim that we put together last week. We were going to try and make some laps last Saturday before the rains came," Hockett said. "We should carry some momentum into this week and are looking for a strong showing at Knoxville."

The Warsaw, Missouri native has been on a hot streak as of late and finished second to Oklahoma's Wayne Johnson in the Budweiser Shootout at US36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri. Hockett has already landed two victories this season at US36.
