NASCAR has announced today that it has purchased Iowa Speedway.
The agreement, finalized today under a wholly-subsidiary, Iowa Speedway, LLC, is effective immediately.
In a press release, Eric Nyquist, NASCAR vice president, strategic development, said, "Iowa Speedway is a great entertainment facility with a very bright future."
"NASCAR ownership will allow is to draw on the entire resources of our company. It also provides us with the opportunity to execute firsthand a number of entertainment ideas and engagement opportunities with fans - much of which we have outlined repeatedly as the core of our Industry Action Plan."
NASCAR will host a special event in Des Moines on Thursday, December 12th, to outline additional details on the purchase and plans for the future. Information about this event will be announced soon.
11/26/13 Newton City Council Approves Sale of the Iowa Speedway
The Newton City Council has approved the transfer of ownership of the Iowa Speedway.The name of the new owner was not released, as Michael Hansen Mayor of Newton pointed out they will be keeping quiet for now.
"The city staff, the mayor, and the council are fully aware of who the new ownership entity is," Hansen says,"We are extremely pleased that this entity is interested in the Iowa Speedway and we're looking forward to a fantastic, long, and prosperous relationship with those folks."
Hansen made the announcement at the supplemental meeting on Tuesday afternoon. However he said the the company announce the new ownership, rather than the city.
"Out of respect for the new ownership entity, and their request, we will not reveal who they are," Hansen announced.
And it did not stop there.
He continued on in saying, "We will not entertain interviews that will go down that line of questioning [to reveal the name]. But, there will be announcement shortly and we obviously want them to be in control of that."
Iowa Speedway spokesperson Craig Armstrong, also did not divulge the name but says the announcement will come soon.
"I think that will be yet to be revealed," Armstrong indicated, "and it will be obvious at the time that it is revealed and I think everyone's going to be looking forward to that day."
He also implied that the sale was not complete just yet, hence the secrecy saying, "Obviously, it's something that we want to maintain control of the discussion and at the appropriate time everything will come out."
The Clement family has owned the track for the past two years, and the Manatt family before them since the track opened in 2006.

~VAIL, Colo. (AP) - Lindsey Vonn says she is not sure yet what effect her latest knee injury will have on her Sochi Olympics hopes.
Asked in an interview on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday whether she can put the kind of pressure on the knee she'll need to train and make it to Sochi in February, Vonn replied: "To be honest, I don't know."
The 2010 Olympic downhill champion says she plans to ski again in the coming days and "if things go well," she will race next week in World Cup events in Canada.
She adds: "If they don't, then I'm going to have to reassess and kind of see where I stand and if I can make a comeback for this season."
Vonn crashed during a downhill training run last week and partially tore a reconstructed ligament in her right knee.
~ AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa State says it will use a $25 million donation to close the south end zone of Jack Trice Stadium and make it a true bowl.
Athletic director Jamie Pollard says the gift from Reiman Publications founders Roy and Bobbi Reiman will also allow the school to create an "inspiring campus entrance."
The end zone set to be closed faces University Boulevard, the road many use to enter campus. It currently has a set of bleachers between a pair of grassy hills.
Final plans for the project have yet to be developed. But Pollard says the school hopes to be completed by the start of the 2015 season.
The project will go in front of the Iowa Board of Regents for approval in February.
~ LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will likely miss at least another game because of a high left ankle sprain.
Trestman says he expects Cutler to sit out his third straight game when the Bears visit Minnesota. He is also "totally confident" his quarterback will return this season.
Cutler tore his left groin muscle against Washington on Oct. 20 and missed the next game at Green Bay two weeks later. He returned earlier than expected against Detroit on Nov. 10, only to injure his ankle. Josh McCown has played well in his place.
Trestman also said Matt Forte slightly hyperextended his knee in Sunday's loss at St. Louis and ruled out linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) for the Minnesota game.
~ ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Some collectors are bringing the Metrodome's old right field wall home after paying a combined $3,025 for pieces of the "Baggie."
A pair of 16-feet-high, 190-feet-long sections of the famed fence sold during an online auction that concluded Monday. One went for $2,025 and the other for $1,000. Together, the items drew 190 bids.
When the Minnesota Twins played at the Metrodome from 1982-2009, left-handed hitters took aim at the dark blue wall that stood only 327 feet from home plate. To make up for the short distance, the fence was extended for a total height of 23 feet. When balls bounced off the wall, it rippled like a garbage bag, spawning the nickname.
Several stadium features are being auctioned off, with demolition looming next year.
~ ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Nate Buss came off the bench to score 23 points and grab 12 rebounds, both career highs, to lead Northern Iowa to a 65-50 win over La Salle and a third-place finish in the Paradise Jam tournament.
The Panthers, who lost to Maryland in the semifinals Sunday night, led by three after a half, but went on a 12-2 run early in the first half. La Salle fell to Providence in the other semifinal.
La Salle (3-4) did not score for more than six minutes at a stretch twice in the second half - during Northern Iowa's run and again from the 7:12 mark of the half until Steve Zack converted a pair of free throws with :59 left.
Seth Tuttle had 15 points for Northern Iowa (3-3).
Zack finished with 13 points to lead the Explorers, with 10 points from Tyrone Garland.

~ AMES, Iowa (AP) - Freshman Grant Rohach passed for a season-best 300 yards and two touchdowns and Iowa State beat Kansas 34-0 on a frigid Saturday night for its first Big 12 victory.
James White and Shontrelle Johnson each ran for a touchdown and Cole Netten kicked two field goals for the Cyclones (2-9, 1-7), who broke a seven-game losing streak at home and sent Kansas to its 24th straight road loss.
Just one week after breaking a 27-game conference losing streak, the Jayhawks (3-8, 1-7) failed to capitalize on some early scoring opportunities and never got much going in the second half, either.
Rohach, who had not thrown a touchdown pass in his five previous games, finished 15 of 20 with one interception and scoring throws of 58 yards to Aaron Wimberly and 15 yards to Quenton Bundrage.
It was the coldest game in Jack Trice Stadium history -- 8 degrees at kickoff.
~GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Greg Jennings are active for the Minnesota Vikings against the Packers.
Peterson (groin) was held out of practice two days this week and was listed as questionable for Sunday's game, as was Jennings, who was nursing a sore Achilles tendon. Jennings is returning to Lambeau Field for the first time since signing with Green Bay's NFC North rivals.
Defensive end Brian Robison (neck) and center John Sullivan (concussion) are also active for Minnesota. Both had been listed as questionable.
For the Packers, cornerback Sam Shields will miss a second straight game with a hamstring injury. Scott Tolzien is starting at quarterback for Aaron Rodgers, who will miss a third straight game with a collarbone injury.
~CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Tai Webster scored 13 of his 14 points in the second and Nebraska rallied to take seventh place at the Charleston Classic with a 73-65 victory over Georgia on Sunday.
The Cornhuskers (4-2) had watched close games slip away their first two days in the eight-team tournament and were trailing the Bulldogs 51-48 with under 10 minutes left. That's when Webster led Nebraska on a 23-13 run to close the game and avoid a 0-for-3 trip to South Carolina's coast.
Webster had seven points in the charge, including a 3-pointer with 7:44 left that put the Cornhuskers up for good.
Georgia got within a point after Marcus Thornton's basket a possession later, but Webster followed with two foul shots and the Bulldogs got no closer. Georgia opened 1-4 for the second straight season. Charles Mann scored 16 points to lead the Bulldogs.
Terran Petteway had 15 points to top Nebraska.
~ GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw for 218 yards to help the Packers storm back from a 16-point deficit for a 26-26 tie as the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay could only muster field goals in overtime Sunday.
Mason Crosby hit from 20 yards at 10:28 of the extra period and Blair Walsh connected from 35 with 3:54 left.
Greg Jennings, playing his first game at Lambeau Field as a member of the Vikings (3-8-1), dropped a third-down pass with 2:11 left. The Packers (5-5-1) also stumbled on their next possession.
One last chance for the Vikings went nowhere with 1 second left, and the teams walked off with the first tie in the NFL since the Rams and 49ers ended 24-24 on Nov. 11, 2012.
~ DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Hallie Christofferson scored 25 points to lead No. 22 Iowa State to an 89-47 blowout over Drake on Sunday.
Christofferson, leading the Big 12 in shooting, was 8 of 10 from the field, including two 3-pointers, and was joined in double digits by Seanna Johnson and Brynn Williamson with 14 points apiece, and Jadda Buckley with 12. Johnson made it a double-double with 11 rebounds as well.
The undefeated Cyclones (5-0) took control of the game with a 14-0 run to close out the first half, carrying a 40-22 advantage into the break. Iowa State picked up right where it left off, out-scoring the Bulldogs 49-25 in the second half.
Lizzy Wendell led Drake (2-3) with 15 points, including the game's first score - a layup that gave the Bulldogs an opening lead. Christofferson erased it moments later with a 3-pointer and the Cyclones pulled away.
~MOSCOW (AP) - Russia will pay hefty bonuses to athletes who win medals at the Winter Olympics on home soil in Sochi.
A decree posted on the government's website says Russia will pay 4 million rubles ($122,000) to Russian gold medalists, $76,000 to silver medalists and $46,000 to bronze winners.
Russia first introduced bonuses for medal winners in the 1990s when individual athletes and entire sports federations were surviving on paltry state subsidies.
Four years ago in Vancouver, Russia recorded its worst ever performance at a Winter Games, winning only 15 medals and finishing 11th in the table.
Medals in Sochi will be a matter of national pride for Russia and President Vladimir Putin, who is directly involved in overseeing preparations for the games.
~ BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Jon Bon Jovi's publicist tells The Associated Press that while the New Jersey rocker is interested in becoming an NFL owner one day, he's not currently pursuing the Buffalo Bills.
Ken Sunshine calls a report that Bon Jovi is actively involved in purchasing the Bills "preposterous." Sunshine notes the Bills are not for sale and adds that Bon Jovi has too much respect for owner Ralph Wilson to consider engaging in discussions for buying the team.
Sunshine spoke by phone Monday, a day after CBSSports.com posted a story citing unidentified sources that Bon Jovi is among the parties positioning themselves to purchase the Bills after Wilson's death. The 95-year-old Wilson has maintained he has no interest in selling the franchise during his lifetime.
~PROVO, Utah (AP) - Melvin Ejim and DeAndre Kane each scored 21 points, leading No. 21 Iowa State to a 90-88 come-from-behind win over Brigham Young on Wednesday night.
Kane, before being ejected for a flagrant 2 foul with 3:28 remaining, had a team-high 11 rebounds for the Cyclones. Georges Niang added 19 points, eight assists and five rebounds for Iowa State.
Iowa State (4-0) took the lead for good with six minutes remaining on a 3-pointer by Matt Thomas. The Cyclones stayed in front with three clutch baskets down the stretch by Niang.
The Cougars, who led for more than 26 straight minutes, got 20 points from Tyler Haws and 19 points and seven assists from Matt Carlino. Freshman Eric Mika scored 17 points and pulled down nine boards.
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Senior Brittany Wilson scored a career-high 26 points for No. 16 Colorado in a 90-87 win over Iowa on Wednesday night.
Colorado was up 48-35 at halftime, but Iowa opened with a 7-0 run. Minutes later, Iowa pulled to within 56-54, but Colorado went on a 15-2 run to extend its lead. Iowa wouldn't go away, responding with a 12-1 burst to make it 72-68 with 5:18 remaining. Colorado made 7 of 10 free throws in the final minute to secure the win.
Arielle Roberson had 17 points, nine rebounds and six assists for Colorado (3-0).
Samantha Logic had 26 points and six assists for Iowa (4-1). The Hawkeyes were trying to become the third team to beat two or more Top-25 teams this season. Iowa beat then-No. 14 Dayton on Nov. 10th.
In Colorado's last 35 games, Iowa is the only team to reach the 70-point plateau.

Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti says doctors have told him he can no longer race because of injuries sustained in an IndyCar crash last month.
Franchitti fractured his spine, broke his right ankle and suffered a concussion in the Oct. 6 crash at Houston. The crash occurred on the last lap when his car made contact with another car and went sailing into a fence.
The 40-year-old underwent two surgeries on his ankle and recently returned home to Scotland to recover.
The four-time IndyCar champion has been the face of the series since he returned in 2009 following a brief stint in NASCAR. He won three consecutive titles from 2009 to 2011. His 31 victories are tied for eighth on the all-time list.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - With the memory of last February's Super Bowl power outage front and center, officials have laid out plans for how they plan to avoid a similar problem at MetLife Stadium in February.
The head of Public Service Electric & Gas says the utility is running a third power line into the electrical substation at the Meadowlands sports complex. PSE&G president Ralph LaRossa said Thursday that even if two of the power lines fail, the third would be enough to power the complex.
LaRossa said the Super Bowl site will require abot 18 megawatts of electricity, or about what it takes to power 12,000 homes.
A partial power outage that caused a 34-minute delay at the Superdome was blamed on an electrical relay device installed specifically to prevent a power failure.
HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) - There was no trash talking, no attempts at mind games.
