The National Sprint Car Museum’s “Sprint Car 101” Third Thursday Series will continue on Thursday, February 16, with “Introducing Jamie Ball”. The free and open-to-the-public program will be held on the museum’s second floor and it will begin at 7 p.m. This ninety-minute program will be the year’s second in the educational and entertaining series which is aimed at new-comers to, and veterans of, the sport of sprint car racing.
According to museum executive director Bob Baker, “We are very excited to be welcoming Jamie Ball, who was runner-up to champion Carson McCarl in Knoxville Raceway’s 2011 winged 305-cubic-inch sprint car division points, to our series. He is a graduate of English Creek Raceway and the Knoxville native will be moving up to the ‘360’ class every Saturday night in 2012. This promises to be another great night for sprint car fans, young and old.”
