Following in the tradition of other iconic centers of racing, Iowa Speedway and Knoxville Raceway are proud to claim the time around Iowa Speedway’s NASCAR XFINITY Series U.S. Cellular 250 on July 30, and Knoxville Raceway’s 56th Annual 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores on August 10-13 as Iowa Speedweeks!
Separated by just 30 miles, Knoxville Raceway and Iowa Speedway share many of the same characteristics that make central Iowa home to some of the best racing in the world. It is often said that Iowa is home to more race tracks per capita than any other state, which fans here proudly wear as a badge of honor.
Connecting to a tradition that dates back to the earliest days of the automobile, the two tracks are thrilled to jointly promote amazing racing and a culture that reflects the fabric of America, including a loyal and passionate fan base.
Motorsports fans in Iowa arrive early, stay late and know the competitors like the backs of their hands!
