NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series Returns for Fifth Consecutive Season

NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series Returns for Fifth Consecutive Season

Classic rock band Kansas will be first act of the 2019 edition

NEWTON, Iowa (March 14, 2019) – Multi-platinum selling band Kansas, Grammy Award-winning metal band Dokken and rising country music star Granger Smith will headline this summer’s NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series at Iowa Speedway.

The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series returns for a fifth consecutive year, featuring three dynamic acts complementing six thrilling races. As in seasons past, each installment of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series will take place at the Party Pavilion, overlooking Turn 4, following the conclusion of the first race of each event weekend.

“The reprisal of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series continues our deep-seeded commitment to providing our fans with a complete entertainment experience on race weekends, which involves much more than racing,” said Iowa Speedway President David Hyatt. “The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series was developed to attract new fans to Iowa Speedway who may not otherwise be aware of, or come to see, a race here … All while being awesome post-race revelry for our most ardent fans.”

The 2019 NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series kicks off on Saturday, June 15, following the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Iowa 200. After the trucks have completed the 200-lap “Leftoverture,” Iowa Speedway fans will get to show they are ready to “Carry on Wayward Son” as legendary rock band, Kansas, takes center stage.

Dokken’s high-energy style and power ballads such as “Alone Again” will keep fans cheering following the ARCA Menards Series Iowa 150 on Friday, July 19. INDYCAR will speed things up the following day with the NTT IndyCar Series Iowa 300, as the stars of INDYCAR solidify Iowa Speedway’s affirmation as the Fastest Short Track on the Planet.

Just one week later, the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series will close out in style on Friday, July 26, starring country singer and songwriter Granger Smith. Smith, named Hottest Artist to Watch in 2016 by Taste of Country, will perform following the NASCAR K&N Pro Series Casey’s General Store 150.
