"Knoxville Twins" To Debut Friday, August 6, With Conclusion Of Advance Auto Parts Knoxville 360 Nationals

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (July 31, 2004) - "We are very excited to be hosting the winged Midwest 305's and the non-winged Thunder 305's in the inaugural 'Knoxville Twins' this Friday night, along with the C-, B-, and A-Mains of the rescheduled Advance Auto Parts 360 Nationals, presented by the Fleet Buying Group. It is important that young open-wheel racers have a stepping stone from go-karts, mini-sprints and midgets to the 360 sprints, and we believe that the 305-cubic-inch sprint car may just be that vehicle," said Knoxville Raceway director of racing Ralph Capitani today.

The Knoxville Twins are twin 12-lap $400-to-win features, one each for the Midwest 305 (winged) Sprint Cars and the Thunder 305 (non-winged) Sprint Cars, respectively. Hot laps and heats will also be run for the 305's. Lee Clark of Fremont and Larry Webb of Bondurant are coordinators for the Midwest 305's, while Bob Thompson of Des Moines and Curtis Thorson of Newton are coordinators for the Thunder 305's.
