Iowa Speedway Cleans Up Pretty Good

Inside Iowa Speedway. The track and grandstands look brand new. The turn 1-2 viewing hil is now occupied by stands.

One change I don’t like is at the start/finish line inthe cover photo. The ear of corn which straddled the line and was an iconic mark of Iowa Speedway, is gone in favor of the HyVee logo.

I get it. HyVee has poured a lot into Indycar in general and this event specifically, but with their name everywhere around the track, the corn could have stayed.

I have never seen the track and buildings look better than they do right now. I’m excited to see the place full, which I haven’t seen since my first year here in 2012.

I still need to venture to the other sid eof the grandstands to check out the concessions and merch tents. We are still a ways from Indy Lights practice, and two hours out from whent he gates open for spectators.

I’ll be back before practice with some ore goings on here.
