“Great Adventure”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is a real trip for anyone interested in auto racing at its finest. The tail-gating before and after the races is great, the concession area is well managed and the races keep you on the edge of your seats. We are so glad the guys like our track.

“ASA/ARCA races”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We went to the first 2 races that were held at the Iowa Speedway. Lodging, at that time was sparse. We stayed in Newton at a Days Inn. However, now they have hotels right around the track. Very impressed with the facility and elated that they were able to attract the Nationwide series. Hope to see the Cup guys there someday! We live a little over an hour away and whenever we get down by there, we always stop at the gift shop which is also very nice with decent prices.

“Iowa Grand Ralley”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

It was the first year and they were kinda disorganized. In spite of that, I had a great time and the staff there was nice. I can't wait for next year.

“Behind the scenes experience at the Iowa Speedway.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great tour of the 7/8 mile tri-oval sports track facility located in the heartland of Iowa. The tour of the owner's suite, media center, fan walk area, pit area, tech inspection building and much more was an eye opener. This quiet facility becomes its own virtual city on race day/weekend. Entire staff was friendly and answered questions and explained what it takes to operate such a facility.
Great chance for kids, young and old, to experience a behind the scenes look at car racing.
