Cold Temperatures, Extreme Wind Chills Cancel Knoxville Event

KNOXVILLE, Iowa — With an outlook of plummeting temperatures and wind chills below freezing this weekend, World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series officials together with Knoxville Raceway staff have canceled the Xtream powered by Mediacom Showdown. Precision Weather Service and local weather experts determined conditions would turn severe following heavy rain on Thursday, negatively affecting the fan and competitor experiences, which led officials to cancel today to prevent unnecessary travel. The World of Outlaws now turn its attention to next weekend’s Illinois, Indiana double header at Tri-City Speedway (Granite City, Ill.) on April 28 and Tri-State Speedway (Haubstadt, Ind,) on April 29.
