NASCAR has announced that Iowa Speedway will host a Camping World Truck Series race on 5 September in place of the event that was originally scheduled to take place at Mansfield Motorsports Park in May.
The race has been moved at Mansfield's request because of its inability to meet the requirements necessary to remain a NASCAR sanctioned facility.
“It is always exciting to go to a new venue and show the fans what the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is all about,” NASCAR's vice president of racing operations Steve O'Donnell said. “The Midwest has some of our sport's most loyal fans and Iowa Speedway produces some incredible racing as we've seen with the NASCAR Camping World East and West Series. We look forward to racing there this season.”
In addition to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, Iowa will host the NASCAR Nationwide Series, as well as the NASCAR Camping World East and West Series in 2009.
“We are extremely pleased to continue our strong relationship with NASCAR with the awarding of yet another NASCAR series race to Iowa Speedway,” circuit CEO Stan Clement added. “We know from past experience that fans here in the Midwest will support this exciting new event.”
