Buckle Up for the Fourth Anniversary of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series
Beloved rock group, Survivor, will be first act of 2018 edition
NEWTON, Iowa (Feb. 21, 2018) – Race fans and music lovers will come together again this summer to celebrate three weekends of world-class entertainment at Iowa Speedway. The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series returns for the fourth consecutive year, featuring a star-studded lineup complementing seven thrilling races. As in seasons past, each installment of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series will take place at the Party Pavilion following the conclusion of the first race of each event weekend.
“This lineup of music heavy-hitters for the fourth NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series is a testament to our mission of offering a compelling racing product while enhancing the overall fan experience,” said Iowa Speedway President David Hyatt. “The return of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series is simply another way for fans to enjoy a full weekend at Iowa Speedway beyond the racing.”
The 2018 NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series kicks off on Saturday, June 16, following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Iowa 200. After the stars of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series find the “Eye of the Tiger,” Iowa Speedway fans will see “The Search is Over” as rock legend, Survivor, takes center stage at the Party Pavilion overlooking Turn 4 immediately following Casey’s General Store’s Victory Lane celebration.
Ultimate guitar-shredding showman, Ted Nugent, will keep fans cheering following the conclusion of the ARCA Racing Series Iowa 150 on Saturday, July 7. INDYCAR will speed things up the following day with the 12th running of the Iowa Corn 300, as the stars of the Verizon IndyCar Series solidify Iowa Speedway’s affirmation as the Fastest Short Track on the Planet.
The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series will close out in style on Friday, July 27, highlighted by rising country music star Dylan Scott. Scott’s friendly charm and rhythm and blues-inspired music will be on full display following the NASCAR K&N Pro Series Casey’s General Store 150.
Anchoring the 2018 season is the NASCAR Xfinity Series U.S. Cellular 250 on July 28. After the roar of the engines has subsided, Iowa Speedway will host its fifth annual Post-Race Party on the Frontstretch. A tradition born in Iowa – opening the catchfence for fans to party on the track – has become universally revered by everyone.
