Rocck Racing - Race Chilhowee - Pics and Video
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:50:45 AM »
I went to the Race Chilhowee event today at the RocckRacing track over near the Knoxville Zoo. Looks like their next race is Aug 4th... These guys really have their act together. They're using transponders to know when the cars cross the line. Maybe that's common, I have no idea. I just thought it was pretty cool. There's plenty of parking and spectator seating. Here are a few of the pics I got. I may upload some more later.

Cool!  Thanks for the photos and video.  That blue and white car was rocking it. Made that huge jump look like no problem.

It was really cool, and the video really doesn't do it justice at all. In the nitro class races the smell of nitro that fills the air is intoxicating. And that car in the pictures with the missing wheel, actually completed the whole race on three wheels... ramps and all...  :notworthy

From their calendar they have another race this Saturday, Aug 4th and the last one is Aug 18th, before they have to tear it down for the year. I could be totally wrong, but I think this is the tractor pull site for the fair.
