Drivers approach the start/finish line at the beginning of the Get To Know Newton 250 on May 18 earlier this year at Iowa Speedway. The Speedway announced dates for NASCAR races in 2015 at Iowa Speedway on Tuesday.

Roughly three weeks after Newton's final racing weekend of the 2014 season, Iowa Speedway gave racing fans in the area something to look forward to next summer.

The Speedway announced its 2015 NASCAR dates earlier today, with three weekends marked for next year's schedule.

Similar to this season — the first season the track was under NASCAR ownership — next year's schedule features two Nationwide Series races and one Camping World Truck Series. The Nationwide drivers will race on May 17 and Aug. 1. Truck drivers will be in Newton for a race on June 19.

“We had three fantastic race weekends filled with incredible racing and entertainment in 2014, and we are really looking forward to increasing the excitement in 2015,” Iowa Speedway President Jimmy Small said in a release. “Our fans continue to prove they are some of the best in the country, and we will continue to work tirelessly on our part, with focus on improving the fan experience and contributing to the quality of life here in Iowa.”

Additional information, such as start times, has not been announced.

The Speedway is also still working with IndyCar to determine a date for a 2015 race in Newton.
