NEWTON, Iowa – August 29, 2012 – The 2013 Iowa Speedway schedule of events will highlight six major weekends, including feature racing events on four Saturdays and a Sunday afternoon, and the second annual Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally on a Friday through Sunday.

“Next year’s schedule will provide fans of Iowa Speedway what they’ve come to expect – great entertainment all summer long,” said Iowa Speedway CEO Doug Fritz. “As we move forward, we want to continually provide our fans one of the best schedules and experiences in all of motorsports.”
The 2013 Racing Schedule will feature two NASCAR Nationwide Series’ races, two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ races, and a visit from the IZOD IndyCar Series, with over 1,000 laps of high-speed action on tap over a busy four-month racing season.
“Once we have all the support series races and start times locked in, we will announce those as well, but for right now we wanted to get the word out on when fans should plan to be at Iowa Speedway next year,” noted Fritz.
The 2013 Iowa Speedway Schedule will include the following weekends:
May 31-June 2 – Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally
June 7-8 – Pioneer Hi-Bred 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series weekend

The Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally will return to Iowa Speedway with a big three-day event on Friday, May 31 through Sunday, June 2.
“We had a great response from rally participants this year, and we are really excited to continue another quality experience for two wheel enthusiasts next year as well,” Fritz said.
