Next month Iowans will get a chance to re-claim the world record for the largest number of people to simultaneously perform the stop, drop and roll fire safety maneuver.

Iowans claimed the record during the 2011 State Fair. But shortly afterwards, the Indianapolis fire department stole the title.

Now we are trying to get it back.

The attempt is Saturday, September 7th after the Prairie Meadows 150 ARCA Series stock car race at the Iowa Speedway in Newton.

Registration begins at 5 p.m.
