    I went there the year after they opened. It was cool then and I bet it has grown incredibly.


    My best advice: Unless you have a place arranged to stay during the weekend of the Knoxville Nationals, don't attempt to tour the museum during that week. The town almost triples in size during the week of the Nationals!

      that's about 2 hours drive from me. This sounds like a great idea on a boring afternoon! Must go see.

        Thanks for this information. I will be in Cedar Rapids this summer for the International Studebaker meet and when I leave there I'll be heading for Omaha. Guess where I'll be stopping along the way?

                I love seeing a sprint car lift the front and hook it on the dirt. 8)

                  I want to go up there someday and see a race and tour that museum! Knoxville is a whale of a track and facility.

                    I live in Des Moines.... just up the road from knoxville... and I can honestly say I've never been to a sprint car race or the museum. I feel so ashamed.... I know... there is no excuse! :'( I will do my best to make it soon!

                      Good Blog but I suppose you mean Super Late Model, Super modifieds are asphalt cars. I haven't been to Knoxville yet but I will probably again make the pilgrimage to Eldora this year. keep a lookout for pics.
