The Iowa Speedway will soon be off to a fast start.
The first big racing weekend of the season gets underway Friday at 8:00 p.m., and the events will feature the Casey's General Store 250 and the DuPont Pioneer 250 a Nationwide Series Race.
Des Moines native Michael Annett will race Saturday night. Despite breaking his sternum in an 11 car pile-up in Daytona last February, Annett says he is now medically cleared to race. Annett finished fifth last year in the Nationwide standings.
The campgrounds open Thursday.
