For those of you who are fans of racing, Rusty Wallace is going to be at the Fair tomorrow to make a big announcement for the 2011 season... Getting a second Nationwide race as been going around and looks like might be coming official!
I'm not really a big NASCAR fan, but that would be awesome news! I grew up in Newton so I have been paying close attention to it and have been to a few races. I wonder how far off a Sprint Cup race is??? From what I understand, they have a full schedule already, but I wonder how far down the list Iowa Speedway stands if they replace/add a track.
Until the Speedway gets its parking and roads in/out figured out along with expanding facilities and seating; a cup race will have to wait... How long is only a matter of time given the success the track as shown in its very few years.
Also the Cup schedule is being over-hauled over the next few years so who knows what could happen!
I really think they should have a few weekends a year, in the Cup series, that the race rotates through tracks like Newton. For example, the 13th race of the year could be at Newton in 2011, Kentucky in 2012, Nashville in 2013, Newton in 2014, and so on.
That would allow Nascar to get to some different tracks, grow the sport a little, and, what I consider to be most intriguing, see just how good these guys are over a single weekend. If Nascar didn't allow any cup testing there, it would allow just the one weekend to see who could get the best product into the race as they wouldn't have notes from previous years to rely on.
