Knoxville Raceway today is proud to announce a partnership with national television network, MAVTV, to showcase the stories and action of the Lucas Oil Knoxville Championship Cup Series weekly races.

Knoxville Raceway’s General Manager, Brian Stickel says the drama and excitement that happens each week in Knoxville will be portrayed in a way that will draw new fans to the sport of open wheel dirt track racing. “MAVTV is the perfect outlet for the Lucas Oil Knoxville Championship Cup Series to reach all the fans who can’t see the event live,” Stickel said. “MAVTV is available in 65 million households, where people are hungry for real racing action and stories. Through this show we are determined to give it to them,” he said.

MAVTV President, Bob Patison adds “MAVTV has put our flag in the sand announcing that we are the destination for all things motorsports. Televising the Lucas Oil Knoxville Championship Cup Series to a national audience fits our vision for grassroots motorsports and we are very proud to have it on MAVTV.”

The first-time sprint car fan and the long-time fan will both enjoy going behind scenes to see what really goes on every Saturday night. Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne all got their start in sprint car racing and even today promote the sport.

You never know when you will see the legends visiting Knoxville or possibly racing. Today, the next racing great could be found at Knoxville Raceway earning their way to the top.

Owned and operated by Lucas Oil Products, MAVTV is a television network with its roots deep in the automotive world. With an unparalleled line-up of motorsports events and exclusive automotive reality shows, MAVTV is the answer for motorheads from all walks of life.

MAVTV is much more than a motorsports destination. MAVTV is a network the whole family can enjoy. A network by the people and for the people, made in America and American Real.
