JONATHAN ALLARD, KYLE LARSON & DARYN PITTMAN TALK ABOUT “INTERNATIONAL SPRINT CAR RACING” AT THURSDAY’S FORUM
Knoxville Nationals Activities
Moderator David Mills of Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia’s Premier Speedway will lead the discussion of “International Sprint Car Racing” at his Knoxville Nationals Fan Fair forum on Thursday, August 9, at 11 a.m. with 2011 New Zealand Sprint Car champion Jonathan Allard, up-and-coming world traveler Kyle Larson and 2002-2003 World Series Sprintcars (WSS) champion Daryn Pittman.
Museum curator and fan fair coordinator Tom Schmeh said today, “Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic promoter David Mills has put a little different spin on things this year by inviting three Americans who have traveled Down Under to compete. It should be another interesting and informative forum on global sprint car competition. And, I wouldn’t be surprised if an Aussie driver competing in the Nationals stops in to chat, too.”
