Iowa Speedway announces two sellouts for NASCAR weekend – Newton Daily News

Iowa Corn is proud to be the premier partner of the first-ever NASCAR Cup Series race at Iowa Speedway. THE Iowa Corn 350, powered by ethanolwill showcase ethanol performance on the fastest short track on the planet.

“I’m happy to share with the NASCAR family why choosing higher ethanol blends benefits everyone,” said Stan Nelson, Middletown farmer and president of the Iowa Corn Promotion Board. “We can make a lasting difference today, without purchasing a whole new vehicle, but by simply choosing to fill up with ethanol at the pump. And we benefit not only the environment, but also our economy, because ethanol is the most affordable renewable fuel option on the market today.

Grandstand tickets and camping for the ethanol-powered Iowa Corn 350 are sold out.

The Iowa Corn 350, Powered by Ethanol, will take place on June 16 at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on USA Network.

This inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at Iowa Speedway culminates a weekend that will also include a 2:30 p.m. NASCAR Xfinity Series race on June 15 on USA Network and ARCA Menards Series races on June 14.

All three series are scheduled to hit the track June 14, ahead of the ARCA Menards Series event.
