As was said throughout the broadcast (and even our most recent podcast - which you can listen to here), the INDYCAR series went from double headers at the longest track in the series to doubleheaders at the shortest track. The Iowa Speedway comes in at 0.875 miles, and the drivers this past weekend each evening … Continue reading There’s a lot of corn and speed (Iowa 250s Review)
