IOWA GOODYEAR DEALERS TO SUPPORT NASCAR K&N PRO SERIES RACE AT IOWA SPEEDWAY

Twenty Iowa based Goodyear Tire dealers have agreed to sponsor Iowa Speedway's fourth annual NASCAR K&N Pro Series East versus West Challenge race on Sunday afternoon, May 23rd. The event will be staged on the track's fast and demanding 7/8-mile paved tri-oval, with spectator gates opening at 8:30 am, qualifying for the 40-plus car field at Noon, and green flag for the 200-lap contest at 3:00 pm.

Now titled 'Goodyear Dealers of Iowa 200', the event will feature all the stars and racecars from both of NASCAR's premier developmental series, which typically race separately in scheduled events on the East and West coasts. Goodyear dealers in Urbandale, Des Moines, Ankeny, Altoona, Ames, Jefferson, Atlantic, Redding, Rockwell City, Marshalltown, Newton, Cedar Rapids, Marion, Bettendorf, Iowa City and Waterloo are participating, and individual stores will offer an "enter to win tickets" promotion for their customers. Other Goodyear dealers may opt into the program prior to the race date and enjoy full participation.

"To have an opportunity to bring together Goodyear dealers with a facility like the Iowa Speedway is fantastic," said Justin Fantozzi, Global Race Tires Marketing Manager for Goodyear. "We can't express how thrilled we are with this program."

On Thursday, May 20th, two NASCAR K&N Pro Series drivers, Brett Moffitt of Grimes, Iowa and West series campaigner Paulie Harraka, will visit one of the Goodyear stores in the greater Des Moines area whose dealer has submitted the most creative idea to host the drivers and allow the public to meet them for autographs and photos. All participating dealers will be honored at the track on Sunday, May 23rd, for the 'Goodyear Dealers of Iowa 200'.

"Working with Goodyear corporate as well as individual Goodyear dealers in Iowa makes this a very effective sponsorship for everyone," said Karen Owen, Sales Manager for Iowa Speedway. "Each participating dealer will have representation at the event, and Iowa Speedway will be represented in each community. It's a win-win for all parties involved. We're delighted to host the Goodyear dealers at Iowa Speedway, and show them everything we have to offer."
