Iowa Speedway adds another race in 2011

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- A second Nationwide Series race has been added to the 2011 schedule at the Iowa Speedway in Newton.

Track designer, Rusty Wallace, made the announcement Wednesday at the Iowa State Fair.

This year, the U.S. Cellular 250 held at the track drew 56-thousand fans and Wallace says that enthusiasm helped in gaining the second race.

 "We really never thought we'd have 2 nationwide races at our track this soon. But the people came out and supported the track, they packed the track and above all racers love racing on the track. They told Nascar we love Iowa Speedway. A date became available and they awarded it to us and we are pumped." 

The two Nationwide events next season will be held on May 22nd and August 6th.
