‘U.S. CELLULAR 250’ NASCAR NATIONWIDE RACE A SELL-OUT AT IOWA SPEEDWAY
Iowa Speedway officials announced this afternoon that the ‘U.S. Cellular 250 presented by the Enlist Weed Control System’ NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday evening, August 3, was a sell-out in the facility’s permanent grandstands.
“We are so pleased to have a full house for our traditional August NASCAR Nationwide Series event,” said Stan Clement, President and co-owner of the Newton racetrack. “We know that Iowa Speedway race fans are the most passionate and most loyal fans in all of motorsports. The fact that we’re selling general admission tickets this afternoon is surely a testament to that, and we are very grateful for the tremendous support we have received for this year’s ‘U.S. Cellular 250’.”
With the campgrounds packed, and all RV viewing sites sold out as well, the track enjoyed nearly perfect weather conditions all day on Saturday. Sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80’s by mid-afternoon brought out many individuals and families seeking tickets, and remaining seats were quickly claimed.
Track officials did indicate that General Admission tickets had also been sold, allowing patrons to view all the action on the 7/8-mile tri-oval from the concourse level.
“We didn’t turn anyone away,” Clement noted. “We have room for thousands of race fans on our concourse level, and in the North Bar tent, and we made a lot of people very happy who might not have been able to see NASCAR Cup champion Brad Keselowski race the whole Nationwide field if we didn’t have that capability.”
The final major event weekend of Iowa Speedway’s 2013 racing season will be Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8, and will feature the ‘Prairie Meadows 150’ ARCA stock car race and the ‘Iowa 200’ NASCAR Camping World Truck Series clash. Tickets and weekend passes are available for those two events at www.iowaspeedway.com, or by calling the toll-free ticketing hotline at 866-RUSTY-GO (787-8946).
