City of Knoxville's new logo

KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville City Council recently updated the city's official logo with a design that includes nods to Iowa and to racing.

Knoxville is home to one of the best-known dirt racing tracks in the country, the Knoxville Raceway. Car races in Knoxville date back to the early part of the 20th century. It hosts the annual Knoxville Nationals. The raceway is Iowa's third largest outdoor stadium and has led to Knoxville being called "Sprint Car Capitol of the World."

Knoxville is also home to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum.

The logo will be used on city vehicles, stationery, business cards and other official items.
