The opening weekend of racing at the Iowa Speedway is nearing a sellout. The action will be highlighted by the NASCAR Camping World Series race on Sunday afternoon.
Track president Jerry Jauron says they still have a couple of a thousand tickets left for Saturday and Sunday, but they are selling fast. One of the big draws Sunday along with the race is the legendary Richard Petty who will be taking questions from people.
Jauron expects the speedway to smash attendance records this season. He says when they went from 5,000 to 20,000 season tickets in 2008, then they knew they would be looking at a record season in 2009.
The racing at the Iowa Speedway begins Saturday night with Late Models and Super Trucks.
