Iowa Speedway, located in Newton, Iowa, opened in 2006, but recently made news when it was purchased by NASCAR. The 7/8-mile “d-shaped” oval was designed by former Cup Series champion Rusty Wallace and is also home to a 1.3-mile road course. Among the series that have raced at the track are the IndyCar Series and Indy Lights, NASCAR’s Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series, the ARCA Racing Series, and the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series.
In 2014, fans will have three major race weekends during which to visit Iowa Speedway. The season opens Saturday and Sunday, May 17th and 18th, with the Nationwide Series and the K&N Pro Series East versus West Challenge. On Friday and Saturday, July 11th and 12th, racing goes under the lights with the Camping World Truck Series on Friday night and the IndyCar Series running 300 laps on Saturday night. The Nationwide Series and K&N Pro Series East versus West Challenge returns to the track Friday and Saturday, August 1st and 2nd, again under the lights.
Season ticket packages, ranging in price from $95 to $249, are now available at www.iowaspeedway.com; individual event tickets go on sale at a later date.
