NASCAR’s inaugural Cup Series race at Iowa Speedway has sold out grandstand tickets and camping.
Iowa Corn will be the entitlement sponsor of the Sunday evening June 16, 2024, race. It’ll be called the Iowa Corn 350, Powered by Ethanol.
“I am pleased to share with the NASCAR family why choosing higher blends of ethanol benefits everyone,” said Stan Nelson, a farmer from Middletown and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board President. “We can make a sustainable difference today, without buying a whole new vehicle, but by simply choosing to fuel up with ethanol at the pump. And not only are we benefiting the environment but also our economy, as ethanol is the most affordable renewable fuel option on the market today.”
The Cup Series race will cap off a tripleheader NASCAR weekend. NASCAR Xfinity Series teams will compete on Saturday, June 15, and the ARCA Menards Series will kick off the weekend on Friday, June 14.
“The Iowa Corn 350, Powered by Ethanol, will give us as farmers a platform across the country to share the benefits of ethanol with consumers and fans,” said Jolene Riessen, a farmer from Ida Grove and the Iowa Corn Growers Association President. “We know that a partnership like this is unique and will be impactful! With the audience NASCAR captures, Iowa Corn will be able to share the benefits of ethanol while also showcasing farmers from our great state.”
A select number of tickets remain for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and ARCA Menards Series races.
