KNOXVILLE, Iowa – Robbie Kendall, a PA Posse member originally from Catonsville, Md., leads the early running for the Priority Aviation $20,000 Knoxville Nationals sponsorship.
Altoona, Iowa’s Carson McCarl, Des Moines, Iowa’s McKenna Haase, and Grain Valley, Missouri’s Brian Brown have joined Kendall as the first drivers in the running for this year’s sponsorship.
The popular Priority Aviation $20,000 Knoxville Nationals Sponsorship, benefiting the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, has returned this year with a twist.
Drivers planning on competing at Knoxville Raceway in Iowa in either the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals are eligible.
The drivers or teams who raise the most funds for the non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum through memberships or donations will again be rewarded cash bonuses.
In addition to the $20,000 first place prize from Richard and Jennifer Marshall of Priority Aviation for the driver or team raising the most funds for the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, the second place earner will be awarded $10,000 and the third place earner will receive $5,000.
National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee Lance Dewease of Fayetteville, Pa., was the recipient of the $20,000 sponsorship in the program’s inaugural season of 2019.
The program brought in over $60,000 that season.
“We can’t thank Richard and Jennifer Marshall enough for this Priority Aviation $20,000 Sponsorship towards the drivers,” said Bob Baker, executive director of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum. “Their generosity to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum and the sport in general has been and continues to be extremely important in its growth. Adding a second and third place prize only adds to the excitement of their program.
“It will be good to see not only one team, but three rewarded for their contributions to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum.”
