The Iowa Speedway is set for it’s opening weekend of action. It will be capped off by the NASCAR Casmping World Series race on Sunday afternoon. Iowa Speedway president Jerry Jauron feels the 12-day race season rivals any track in the nation. He says you won’t find any other track that has the varied 12-race schedule for the ticket price they offer.
With four NASCAR sanctioned events and the Indy Racing League returning record crowds are expected this year. Jauron predicts record crowds for the opening week and says the crowds will get bigger each week. Jauron says there are well over 20,000 season ticket holders for this season and final preparations are underway.
Jauron says the spring has been wet, which has prevented them from mowing the parking areas, but they’ve had some dry weather and have been able to get out and mow. Late Models and Super Trucks will open the season on Saturday.
