About Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend

The Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend returns to the Iowa Speedway in Newton, IA, July 21-23. Coming off a  memorable weekend by Hy-Vee in 2022 when over 80,000 people experienced the return of INDYCAR to Iowa Speedway, 2023's weekend won't be anything less than exciting.

With some of the most exciting and competitive racing featured at the “Fastest Short Track on the Planet”, Hy-Vee is bringing in four major artists to entertain capacity crowds before and after the races on Saturday, July 22nd, and Sunday, July 23rd.

Before the racing and the concerts begin, Hy-Vee will once again host Free Family Friday so everyone will be welcome at Iowa Speedway free of charge on Friday, July 21. Friday will feature practice sessions from the cars and stars of the NTT INDYCAR Series as well as the next generation of open-wheel racers from INDY NXT by Firestone.

What You Can Expect During Hy-Vee IndyCar Race Weekend

To talk about everything fans will experience the second-to-last week in July at the Iowa Speedway, Anne Fischgrund, General Manager of Hy-Vee IndyCar Race Weekend, joined us to give everyone the inside scoop.

Anne and the incredible staff of the Hy-Vee IndyCar Race Weekend are excited to see you July 21st-23rd.

By the way, I misspoke. It's 250 laps not 250 miles at the Iowa Speedway. But 250 laps is 223.5 miles raced. Remember, the Iowa Speedway track is only .875 miles.

Who are the four major artists coming to the Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend?
