Ninth Annual Cox Design & Metal Fabrication Iowa SpeedWeek

to Award the Jesse Hockett "Mr. Sprint Car" Title



            KNOXVILLE, IOWA  (June 26, 2010)  -  McTwo Promotions, Knoxville
Raceway and Bruce and Debi Cox of title sponsor Cox Design & Metal
Fabrication have agreed that the ninth annual Cox Design Iowa SpeedWeek,
August 5-14, will now award the Jesse Hockett "Mr. Sprint Car" title in
honor of the fallen racer from Warsaw, Missouri.  According to Bruce Cox,
"We couldn't think of a better way to honor Jesse than by permanently
renaming the title that is bestowed upon the most talented versatile driver
of the ten straight nights of sprint car racing between Oskaloosa and
Knoxville in mid-August".



            The ninth annual Cox Design & Metal Fabrication Iowa SpeedWeek
kicks off on August 5-7 at the Knoxville Raceway with the twentieth annual
Arnold Motor Supply '360' Knoxville Nationals presented by Iowa Telecom.
The winged 410-cubic-inch sprint car feature on Saturday, August 7, will
also be a points-paying round in the ten-night series.  On Sunday, August 8,
Knoxville Raceway will then host the inaugural Non-Winged Knoxville
Nationals for the traditional sprint cars of the United States Auto Club
(USAC).  The winged 305-cubic-inch sprint car feature that night will also
be a points-paying round in 2010, which marks the first time that a '305'
event has awarded points toward the overall title.



            Action then turns to the McTwo Promotions-promoted half-mile
dirt oval in nearby Oskaloosa, known as the Southern Iowa Speedway, for the
August 9-10 events.  The Monday night fifteenth annual Musco Lighting Front
Row Challenge presented by Casey's General Stores is sanctioned by the '410'
All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC).  The Tuesday night ninth annual
Casey's General Stores Ultimate Challenge presented by the Searsboro
Telephone Company for traditional non-winged sprinters is sanctioned by
USAC.



            Knoxville Raceway takes center stage August 11-14 with the
fiftieth annual Goodyear Knoxville Nationals presented by Lucas Oil, which
is the open-competition national championship for winged 410-cubic-inch
sprint car teams.  The qualifying nights are Wednesday, August 11, and
Thursday, August 12, with the seventeenth annual Premier Chevy Dealers
Knoxville World Challenge invitational race for the best drivers from
Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States on Friday, August 13.
The 'Granddaddy of Them All', the 50th annual Knoxville Nationals, takes
place on Saturday, August 14.



            The 2010 Cox Design Iowa SpeedWeek, awarding the Jesse Hockett
"Mr. Sprint Car" title, will be highlighted by twelve points-paying features
over ten nights for four divisions of sprint cars at two different tracks
just 26 miles apart in south central Iowa.  It will again pay $2,500, $1,000
