Following in the tradition of other iconic centers of racing, Knoxville Raceway and Iowa Speedway are proud to claim Iowa Speedweeks.

Iowa Speedweeks will commence on Thursday, July 28 with the NASCAR U.S. Cellular 250 race weekend at Iowa Speedway and continue through the 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores on Saturday, August 13.

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.
