The NASCAR Nationwide Series makes its second stop at the Iowa Speedway this weekend with Saturday night’s US Cellular 250.
Iowa Speedway CEO Doug Fritz who says Brad Keselowski will be the first reigning sprint Cup champion to compete at the track. “What makes it challenging for Brad is the strong field he’s got to compete against. We’ve got Brian Vickers in the field, who just won the New Hampshire NASCAR cup race just recently,” Fritz says.
The field also includes a past winner of the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500. Fritz says the drivers in the Nationwide Series enjoy competing against the big names in the Sprint Cup Series. “Not only having the name and attention to draw the fans, but they want to beat Brad,” Fritz says. He says that will make for an exciting race Saturday.
Fritz says as of this morning there are still tickets available for Saturday night’s race. He says they anticipate a sell out and he recommends that you get onto the website IowaSpeedway.com or call 1-866-Rusty-go to get tickets.
Fritz says fans will have an opportunity to meet the drivers this weekend as they have an autograph session at 2:30 with all the Nationwide drivers.
