Over $300,000 Distributed At Knoxville Raceway Banquet

ALTOONA, Iowa — Knoxville Raceway drivers, owners, officials and fans gathered Saturday night at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino for the Knoxville Raceway Banquet where over $300,000 was distributed in cash and contingencies.

Track announcers Tony Bokhoven and Kris Krug emceed the event. 

The contingency package was headlined by a giveaway of eight chassis.

Each owner in all three sprint car classes was awarded a contingency. The Knoxville Raceway Charitable Organization (KRCO) again will provide insurance for all Knoxville point eligible drivers. Drivers who intend on competing in weekly racing at Knoxville Raceway in 2023 will also have fire suppression bottles purchased by the KRCO.  

After dinner, newly appointed general manager Jason Reed addressed the attendees. In addition to the thanks doled out to those who make Knoxville Raceway what it is, he expressed his excitement for next season.  

Drivers and owners outside of the top five in each of the three respective classes received their accolades.  

The “Jr. Fan Club Driver of the Year” was given to Brian Brown, marking his fourth award.  

Bill Webb was the recipient of the “Knoxville Raceway Fan of the Year” for his involvement and support in the Knoxville Raceway. Bob Baker, the executive director of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, presented the “Ralph Capitani Heritage Award” to longtime Knoxville official Doug Clark.

The “Lyle Boyd Hard Charger Award” awards the drivers who passed the most cars in A-main events this season. Tyler Groenendyk received the award in the Pro Series class, with Chase Randall (360) and Riley (410) receiving the award in their respective classes.  

Tasker Phillips was named the “Sportsman of the Year” in the 410 class, while Kaleb Johnson picked up the honor in the 360 class. Jeff Wilke won the award in the Pro Series class for the second time in his career. Ryan Navritil (Pro Series), Chase Randall (360) and JJ Hickle (410) were named “Rookie of the Year” in their respective classes.  

The big hardware went out last to the top five drivers in the Knoxville Championship Cup Series point standings.

In the Pro Series class, Brandon Worthington (fifth), Eric Bridger (fourth), Scotty Johnson (third), Tyler Groenendyk (second) and Mike Mayberry (champion) were honored. It was Mayberry’s first career championship.  

In the 360 class, Jamie Ball (fifth), Kaleb Johnson (fourth), Chase Randall (third), Clint Garner (second) and Terry McCarl (champion) were honored. It was Terry’s first career championship in the 360 class after winning seven in the 410 class. In the 410 class, Justin Henderson (fifth), Lynton Jeffrey (fourth), Austin McCarl (third), Aaron Reutzel (second) and Brian Brown (champion) were honored.

It was Brian’s fifth championship in the 410 class. He also has a title in the 360’s.
