Race fans will have the first chance to get tickets for Iowa’s newest track when season tickets go on sale this weekend for the Iowa Speedway in Newton. The 7/8ths mile oval will be open for racing in September.
General manager Todd Melfi who says the track will host five events this fall, including four races and a practice day and fans who purchase a season ticket package get all five dates. He says you also get a V-I-P parking pass and first right of refusal on your seat for next year when they have a full season.
Melfi says while Iowa is dominated by dirt tracks he feels those fans will be attracted by the variety of racing the Iowa Speedway will offer. Melfi says race fans love the sport no matter what surface they’re running on.
