For the first time ever in Iowa Speedway’s history, drivers will not be walking across the stage as they are introduced during pre-race ceremonies for the American Ethanol 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race on Saturday, July 14. Instead, all drivers will be making in a very special event entrance.
“The pace lap in the Chevy Silverado pickup truck is the only main thing that won’t change for this pre-race, making it one that all fans will remember,” said Doug Fritz, CEO of Iowa Speedway.
Also for the first time ever, there will be a ‘mini airshow’ during the pre-race festivities for the fans in attendance. The Vanguard Squadron, from Sioux Falls, SD, and whose planes fly on 100% ethanol fuel, will scream across the sky for several minutes as they dazzle the fans in the stands with a show powered by American Ethanol.
According to Fritz, this pre-race will be one of the highlights of the 2012 fan experience.
“Driver introductions are always a fun time as the fans and drivers start to get pumped up for the race,” Fritz noted. “Add an airshow overhead and a special driver entrance, paired with the NASCAR Trucks’ first appearance at Iowa Speedway for 2012, and you have a recipe for one great night!”
