WHAT TO WATCH FOR: 61st Knoxville Nationals Takes Center Stage This Week | World of Outlaws (2022)

It’s finally time. The Granddaddy of ‘Em All has arrived.

The 61st NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s officially begins on Wednesday night with the first of two split-field preliminary nights for the 100+ car field. The million-dollar purse continues to pay out on Thursday and into Friday’s #HardKnox program, and then the big dance awaits on Saturday with a $175,000-to-win, $10,000-to-start main event on everyone’s minds.

A sell-out crowd of more than 20,000+ diedhard fans is expected to pour into The Sprint Car Capital of the World, but those who can’t make it to Knoxville, Iowa can still enjoy DIRTVision’s full coverage of the event from home.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: 61st Knoxville Nationals Takes Center Stage This Week | World of Outlaws (1)

BUY TICKETS (Wed-Sat)

Here’s what to watch for this weekend in Knoxville:

SIX-FOR-SIX: For the first time since 1968-72, the Knoxville Nationals has offered five different champions through five consecutive runnings. Jason Johnson (Eunice, LA) started the stretch with his unforgettable 2016 triumph, Donny Schatz (Fargo, ND) followed him with a 10th title in 2017, Brad Sweet (Grass Valley, CA) broke through for his maiden crown in 2018, David Gravel drove the Axalta #41 to glory in 2019, and then Kyle Larson (Elk Grove, CA) finally took his place at the mountaintop in 2021.

(Video) FIFTEEN: The Donny Schatz Story

A victory for Sweet, Gravel, or Larson would make them the eighth driver to win multiple Knoxville Nationals through 61 years – joining Steve Kinser (12), Donny Schatz (10), Doug Wolfgang (5), Danny Lasoski (4), Kenny Weld (4), Mark Kinser (3), and Eddie Leavitt (2).

CHASING STEVE: Competing in Wednesday’s preliminary night – which happens to be his 45th birthday – Donny Schatz begins his next quest at chasing an 11th title in the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s. The birthday boy proved he’s as strong as ever in Knoxville, Iowa on Sunday, when he drove forward to finish a close second in the Capitani Classic.

Schatz was a mere one lap away from potentially stealing the title from Kyle Larson last year, and has brought a special retro look for his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Carquest Auto Parts, Ford Performance #15. Another win this week would bring the 10-time World of Outlaws champion only one title away from tying Steve Kinser’s all-time record of 12 titles in Knoxville.

SUNDAY SHARKS: Sunday’s Capitani Classic can be an excellent measuring board for the succeeding NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s. In 2018 and 2019, Brad Sweet and David Gravel used a Sunday score to propel themselves into a perfect week as each driver eventually won their preliminary night and then their first-career title later in the week.

This year, “The Cappy” belonged to Logan Schuchart and Shark Racing, who survived a fierce battle with Donny Schatz to win the $9,000 unsanctioned precursor atop the black zook clay. The Hanover, PA native has shined in The Sprint Car Capital of the World before, most notably hauling from 22nd-to-2nd at the 2019 Knoxville Nationals.

BUILDING BLOCKS:Five of last year’s top-10 finishers at the Knoxville Nationals are back for more and hoping their 2021 success can catapult them to career-best performances in 2022.

Giovanni Scelzi (Fresno, CA), who has qualified for all three Nationals he’s attempted, led 10 laps last yearn and ultimately finished fourth in the KCP Racing #18. The 20-year-old sensation has already beat the Outlaws twice this year, and won at Knoxville last month.

James McFadden (Alice Springs, NT) and Kasey Kahne (Enumclaw, WA) both earned career-best runs of seventh and eighth last year at Knoxville, and now they’re swapping rides for the 2022 edition. McFadden is now in the Roth Motorsports #83, fresh off back-to-back podiums at I-55, and Kahne is in his own equipment aboard the FuelMe, Karavan Trailers #9 aiming for his first-career World of Outlaws win.

(Video) LIVE PREVIEW: World 100 at Eldora Speedway

Carson Macedo (Lemoore, CA) and Sheldon Haudenschild (Wooster, OH) are tied as the winningest World of Outlaws drivers in 2022 with each claiming eight wins apiece. Both have found success at Knoxville in the past and they both earned their second Nationals top-10 finish last year.

JUNE GIANTS: When the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last raced at The Sprint Car Capital of the World in June, it was a pair of non-full-timers shutting out the travelers from Victory Lane. Brent Marks, of Myerstown, PA, who later went on to win the Historical Big One and Kings Royal, completely swept the opening night in June at Knoxville and returns this week hoping to top his Nationals career-best of sixth from 2021.

Claiming the final night in June was Brian Brown, of Higginsville, MO, who is currently tied for third on the Knoxville Raceway All-Time Win List at 59 wins. The Casey’s General Stores, FVP Parts #21 once finished runner-up in three consecutive Knoxville Nationals (2012-14) and won a preliminary night as recent as last year. With four-time champion Danny Lasoski on the wrenches, Brownie is hungry to finally tame the big one.

MILLION-DOLLARS: It’s the single-most lucrative week of the year for Sprint Car racers. A million-dollar purse pays out hefty chunks from Wednesday and Thursday’s prelims ($12,000/Win, $1,000/Start) all the way to the $175,000/Win, $10,000/Start main event on Saturday night. There’s a handful of side hustles available as well including the Best Appearing Car Award, Best Appearing Crew, Best Appearing Helmet, Mr. Sprint Car Award, Rookie of the Yeard Award, Hard Charger Award, and Pole Award.

TREND-BREAKERS: The trends say that winning the 360 Nationals and Ironman 55 the week before the Knoxville Nationals can often be a deterrent. Never before in 30 years of the 360 Nationals and 15 years of the Ironman 55, has any driver topped either race the week before and later capped their trip to Knoxville by winning the big one with a 410 under the hood.

Aaron Reutzel and Brad Sweet are the two men who get to put that trend to the test this week. Reutzel topped the 360 Nationals aboard the RSR, Mobil 1 #8 and now looks to add a 410 Nationals victory to his resume, where his career-best is fourth from 2018. For Sweet, who won the Ironman 55 for the first time in his career, he’ll be trying to tame his second Knoxville Nationals crown this week in the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49.

THE ROOKIES: A race within the race each year is the hotly contested battle for JETCO Rookie of the Year honors. This week, 11 newbies will tackle the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s for the first time in their careers. These fresh faces will try to join Erin Evernham (22nd in 2003), Tony Bruce Jr. (22nd in 2007), Kyle Larson (16th in 2012), and Giovanni Scelzi (14th in 2018) as the only rookies since 2000 to qualify for the A-Main.

Contenders for the award include Buddy Kofoid, Tyler Drueke, Corey Day, Cole Macedo, Carson Short, Chris Windom, Justin Sanders, Dylan Westbrook, Blake Hahn, Alan Gilbertson, and Lachlan McHugh.

MR. SPRINT CAR: Each August, the Beaver Drill & Tool Jesse Hockett Mr. Sprint Car Award recognizes the most consistent and most successful drivers throughout Sourthern Iowa Speedweek. The grueling 10-day stretch – which includes 360 Nationals, Capitani Classic, Front Row Challenge, and Knoxville Nationals – puts cars on track for at least six race nights if you commit to it all.

Entering the Knoxville Nationals, Aaron Reutzelleads the way with 182 points accrued thanks to runs of third and first at 360 Nationals, third at the Capitani Classic, and 15th at the Front Row Challenge. Trailing him is Giovanni Scelzi (-4 points), Brian Brown (-13 points), Parker Price-Miller (-16 points), and Anthony Macri (-42 points).

THE INVERT: Arguably the most exciting racing of the week comes in the form of Heat Races during Wednesday and Thursday’s preliminary nights. Following Qualifying, the field is lined up in five, 10-lap Heat Races with an eight-car inversion. Meaning you go fastest and you start eighth in the first Heat. It gets tougher from there because only the top-four finishers in the Heat Races will transfer directly to the preliminary Feature.

ALL ABOUT POINTS: The best route to a Knoxville Nationals crown is through the front row, and the only way you make it there is with a phenomenal preliminary performance. The more points, the closer to the front. On prelims on Wednesday and Thursday, Qualifying rewards 200-198-196-etc. with Heat Races paying 100-97-94-etc. and the Feature again offering 200-198-196-etc. A perfect night would tally 500 points, something only done once in the last 25 years.
