Indy 500, Knoxville Nationals Rank On National ‘Best Motorsports Race’ List

The Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge was named the “Best Motorsports Race” in the this year’s USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest. For more than 60 years, the Knoxville Nationals has been turning sprint car drivers into motorsport legends and providing fans with one of the most unique event experiences. It’s a really quiet town when you’re there for not the Knoxville Nationals. “But, when the Knoxville Nationals is there, it’s like a buzzing little city with all sprint car enthusiasts and race car fans. Twenty-seven drivers have claimed the Knoxville Nationals title since the first race in 1961. Along with the prestige and trophy, the Knoxville Nationals pays out one of the biggest purses in sprint car racing. “It’s such a unique area,” said David Gravel, the 2019 Knoxville Nationals champion.
