Transportation

Getting to Knoxville

Just 35 miles south of Iowa's capital in Des Moines, you will find the greatest half-mile dirt track in the World. Most races run in the evening, so you can spend your days enjoying the many sights in Marion County, dropping a fishing line in Lake Red Rock, browsing in the Dutch community of Pella, or taking advantage of Des Moines which is just thirty-five miles from the track. Attractions there include historic Downtown and the East Village, Adventureland, and during the Nationals, the great Iowa State Fair.
