Iowa Speedway is the first racetrack in the nation to install the SAFER Barrier as the sole retaining wall surrounding the racetrack. This state-of-the-art safety system uses high-density foam to absorb the impact during a crash, making Iowa Speedway’s racing as safe as it is exciting.

Iowa Speedway is the first-ever racetrack to have multiple Track-Cams installed prior to paving the track’s surface. These wide-angle lens cameras are embedded in the surface of the track itself, providing incredible perspectives for television viewers.
