Iowa Speedway gets 2-year extension

The IndyCar Series will compete at the Iowa Speedway through the 2011 season. Series and track officials announced they had reached an agreement in principle to sign a two-year deal.

“We are very excited about this, we’re excited about being here every year,” IndyCar Series commercial division president Terry Angstadt said. “When we’re here, we’re treated so well. The fans are so great, and that doesn’t happen in every market.”

The deal hasn’t been signed yet, but IndyCar Series commercial division president Terry Angstadt said the deal would be signed soon. It was a matter of paperwork and not details of the deal.

“This will solidify Iowa Speedway as one of the top motorsports venues in the world,” track president Jerry Jauron said. “It’s an exciting time to be at Iowa Speedway.”

The deal doesn’t specify on which date the race will take place, but both sides are open to moving the date.

Iowa Speedway’s sponsorship deal with Iowa Corn Promotion Board ends after today’s race.

The IndyCar Series schedule will be finalized at the end of July. The schedule will have nine ovals and nine road or street courses, Angstadt said. The current mix is 10-7 ovals to street courses.
