NASCAR has canceled all NASCAR races at Iowa Speedway for the 2020 summer season. Wide Opening Weekend June 12-13 with NASCAR Gander RV Truck Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series races and the July 31-Aug. 1 finale with NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race and the Xfinity Series U.S. Cellular 250 are gone with the NASCAR realignment of races because of the coronavirus health crisis.

Iowa Speedway’s NASCAR race weekends have officially been canceled as part of the revised NASCAR schedule.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series races were originally scheduled for June 13 and Aug. 1 and the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race was slated for June 12.

With those races gone, Iowa Speedway 2020 season is as of now a single weekend of a NTT IndyCar Series doubleheader and an ARCA Menards Series race on July 17-18. IndyCar will race on July 17 and the Iowa 300 on July 18, both night races. The ARCA race is slated for the afternoon of July 18.

NASCAR and Iowa have worked closely with public health officials, medical experts and state and federal officials throughout the development of a realigned NASCAR schedule to ensure the safety of competitors, staff, and the local community.

The decision to realign the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander RV Truck Series race events was on account of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Iowa’s first NXS race has been realigned to Homestead-Miami Speedway as part of NASCAR’s efforts to reschedule all points races for all national series events for the current season.

Iowa’s second NASCAR Xfinity Series race — the U.S Cellular 250 — and the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Trucks Series race will be realigned for a future date on the 2020 NASCAR schedule.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race originally scheduled for July 31 has also been canceled for this year.

Ticketholders may receive a credit for the full amount of their purchase plus an additional 20% of the total amount paid to apply towards future race events, including, but not limited to, grandstand seating, infield, camping, fan hospitality, and track passes.

The 120 percent event credit can be used in a single transaction during the remainder of the 2020 season and entire 2021 season for a NASCAR sanctioned event at any NASCAR-owned tracks, subject to availability.

Fans can also request a refund, if preferred. As a reminder, requests could take a minimum of 60 days for processing from the time of your original request. For additional details and other options, visit iowaspeedway.com/assistance.
