THREE FULL ‘BIG EVENT’ WEEKENDS HIGHLIGHT 2014 SCHEDULE AT IOWA SPEEDWAY
Iowa Speedway today released its complete 2014 racing event schedule. The schedule encompasses three weekends, one each in May, July and August, and includes two NASCAR Nationwide Series races, a combination IndyCar and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series weekend, plus two additional major supporting events.
“Iowa Speedway fans consistently support our ‘big event’ weekends,” said Stan Clement, President of Iowa Speedway. “This lineup of major NASCAR and IndyCar races is the best schedule we have put together for our race fans and promotional partners, and we look forward to an exciting and entertaining 2014 racing season.”
The 2014 season opens on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 – 18, with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East versus West Challenge Saturday night. The stars and cars of the NASCAR Nationwide Series then will battle on Sunday in a 250-lap, high-speed contest on Iowa Speedway’s 7/8-mile tri-oval. The race marks the only Sunday afternoon event of the season at Iowa Speedway.
As previously announced, the new IndyCar/NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race weekend at Iowa Speedway is slated for Friday and Saturday nights, July 11 – 12, under the lights. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will race Friday night, and feature more than 30 of NASCAR’s top national drivers in the American Ethanol 200. The first-ever Iowa Corn Indy 300 will feature 24 of the world’s best open-wheel racers in a 300-lap, 190 mph shootout on Saturday night.
Finally, the NASCAR Nationwide Series again will round out the season at ‘America’s Place to Race’ on Friday, August 1 and Saturday, August 2, with a second K&N Pro Series East versus West challenge race Friday night and the 250-lap feature race on Saturday night, under the lights.
