Racing

A new 410 sprint series established by Tod Quiring of Big Game Treestands of Windom has announced the support of Knoxville Raceway for the 2015 season.

Knoxville Raceway has selected four dates with the newly formed series. Those events will be part of the Knoxville Championship Cup Series.

"Our region is extremely fortunate to have a class facility like Knoxville Raceway and the talented drivers who compete there weekly," Quiring said. "I've had a vision for this series for several years. With the point fund of Knoxville Raceway and our series, it will allow many drivers the opportunity to race at Knoxville weekly and also with the series."

The first series race at Knoxville is scheduled for May 9. A $5,000-to-win event will follow on June 27 before a race on July 4. The season championship is set for Aug. 29 and will be a $5,000-to-win series event.

The series plans to pay out more than $250,000 in cash and prizes and pay a standout point fund of approximately $350,000.

In addition, Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb., will host an event on May 8.

A driver winning that feature, along with the May 9 event at Knoxville will receive a $20,000 bonus.

The new series will include approximately 30 events, allowing drivers to compete weekly for the Knoxville point fund in addition to the series point fund.

"The outpouring of support and calls I've received from major businesses to promoters to race tracks has been beyond what I thought it would be," Quiring said. "The future looks very bright."
