One of America’s newest race tracks, Iowa Speedway is located in Newton, IA and has been in operation since 2006. The 7/8 mile oval was designed and built under the auspices of NASCAR champion Rusty Wallace at a cost of approximately $70 million. Thus it’s no coincidence the D-shaped oval is patterned after Richmond International Raceway, scene of some of Wallace’s greatest success during his career.
Iowa Speedway has a seating capacity of more than 30,000, together with a unique multi-tiered Recreational Vehicle viewing area along its 869’ long backstretch. A fixture on the NASCAR and IndyCar schedules, Iowa Speedway also boasts a nine turn, 1.3 mile road course which utilizes most of the main oval along with a highly technical infield section and hosts professional and amateur sports car races.
