After being washed away during Attica Raceway Park's Ohio Sprint Speedweek events the Knoxville Nationals 50th Anniversary Tour plans to return to Attica this Friday Night, July 24th when the World of Outlaws Late Model Series invades "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant. It is also a $3,000 to win event for the 410 Sprint Cars as they compete during a Kistler Racing Products Fremont/ Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) Championship Series points event.

The Knoxville Nationals 50th Anniversary Tour hit the road in March of this year with a mission. The mission is to spread the word far and wide that sprint car racing is one of the most exciting forms of racing in motorsports. It is an affordable form of family entertainment where the action is never short of spectacular. With 10 to 15 races each night ranging from 6 to 30 laps something exciting is always happening.

The Knoxville Nationals 50th Anniversary Tour is traveling to traditional motorsports venues as well as non-traditional non-motorsports venues. When the Pella Motors Chevy 2500 pulls into town with the brightly adorned tour trailer fans and spectators can sign up to win tickets to the Knoxville Nationals and other great prizes. The sprint car simulator also allows fans an in the moment experience of what it might be like inside these 850 horsepower rockets. Kids can pick up a 50th Anniversary temporary tattoo and learn about the history of the sport and the great drivers who have participated over the years.

The gates open at 4:00 PM at Attica Raceway Park on the 24th with racing slated to started at 7:45 PM. For more information go to
