A busy weekend of action begins at the Iowa Speedway tonight with the running of a USAC Triple Crown race. The weekend will be capped off by tomorrow night’s running of the Iowa Corn Indy 250. It will mark the first time the IndyCar series has run under the lights in Newton.
Iowa Speedway president Jerry Jauron says the track can change when you run at night and don’t have sunlight. Today they will run a practice session to be sure the are ready to go when daylight transitions to night Saturday.
Jauron says track officials are urging fans to be patient after Saturday night’s race as the parking lots empty. He says they have gotten a lot of cooperation from law enforcement and he says people will have to be patient.
