Iowa Speedway

5 posts in this topic

Just returned from the Inagural Nationwide race at Iowa Speedway. We took the whole family along, and had a blast. There are some things that the speedway will have to change as far as parking and traffic flow go, but otherwise it was great. Hopefully, the Nationwide series will continue to come to Iowa, and maybe NASCAR will take note.

Yes, it would be nice to have a few races closer to home. I had always hoped the Mn state faigrounds would have had more than just the ASA races once a year.

I dont think you will ever see the "big boys" there. But I would hope the Nationwide and the Trucks make it a regular stop. At least on TV the raceing looked good.

My sister was sitting next to a guy that was on the board when the speedway was built. He said that the track is for sale, and some big wigs in NASCAR have been looking at it. To me, that would mean the Nationwide would make it a regular stop. The trucks have been racing there for awhile, so I think they will stay on the schedule. They would have to change a couple of things as far as the roads to and from the track, but the facility itself is really nice.

The racing was great. The leader could pull away from the other cars once they got into clean air, until it was between Brad and Kyle. There was hard racing going on all over the track. It was the first time I had ever seen two cars get stuck together with a third wedged in between. They got themselves apart pretty close to where we were sitting, so we could see Steve Wallace's hand gestures out his window. grin

The wife and I had a BLAST! I have never been to a race before and plan on going again. I just wish I had a little more room in my seat. It was a real tight squeeze. We did not have any problem with parking or leaving. I did hear some had issues. We must have been lucky. I sure hope the sprint cup shows up there. I thought it was a great track. You could see every corner from our seats.

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
