Knoxville Championship Cup Series

Knoxville Raceway 360 and 410 point series


The Lucas Oil Knoxville Championship Cup Series is the 305, 360 and 410 point series for Knoxville Raceway. This series continues to be the premier weekly sprint car event in the United States. Sponsorship from Lucas Oil has helped make both the weekly purse and point funds unequaled in weekly racing venues.

Distributing over $39,000 at each weekly event, this series awards over a quarter of a million dollars annually in prizes and merchandise.

Using the drama of the coveted Champion title, the Lucas Oil Knoxville Championship Cup Series promotes both teams and individual drivers.

The heart and soul of sprint car racing is truly the drivers and teams who compete each week at Knoxville Raceway. They work hard to bring fans the best racing in the country.  Many of the top drivers who've competed at Knoxville Raceway have gone on to compete and win championships with the World of Outlaws, IndyCar and NASCAR.

Throughout the season, fan festivities such as driver autograph sessions, simulator car rides, contests and many other activities take place both on and off site.
