This weekend’s format for the 2nd annual Brandt Corn Belt Nationals at Knoxville Raceway on Friday and Saturday, July 10-11 brings with it a different format than is utilized in the high majority of USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship events.

The full format is listed below for the event, which begins Friday, July 10 with the pit gate opening at Noon Central time for trailer parking.  Sign-in commences at 3pm with draw closing at 5:45pm.  The drivers meeting takes place at 6pm followed by engine warm up at 6:15pm with hot laps starting at 6:45pm with the rest of the program following thereafter.  The same exact schedule and times are in place for the Saturday, July 11 portion of the event as well.

The event, co-sanctioned by the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship and the POWRi Lucas Oil War Sprint Car League, features two complete nights of sprint car racing action with each night culminating with a feature race, the Friday, July 10 main event paying $5,000-to-win and the Saturday, July 11 finale paying $20,000-to-win.

Spectator tickets for the inaugural Brandt Professional Agriculture Corn Belt Nationals are available at https://mpv.tickets.com/schedule/?agency=KNXV_PL_MPV&orgid=54409#view=list&includePackages=true or by calling the Knoxville Raceway ticket office at 641-842-5431. Tickets start at $25 for adults on Thursday and $30 for Saturday.

Brady Bacon dominated both ends of the inaugural Brandt Corn Belt Nationals in 2019, walking away with a two-night total of $25,000 between his two victories.

While separate event-specific points will be earned throughout the Corn Belt Nationals, all drivers and teams competing in the event that possess a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car license will be awarded 50 appearance points each night, which will go toward the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car championship standings.  No prelim or feature points will be awarded.
