Eric Peterson named Iowa Speedway president

As the Iowa Speedway gets ready to host a NASCAR Cup Series race it has new leadership. Eric Peterson has been named president of the Newton track. He has been with NASCAR at the Kansas Speedway the past 13 years and has also served on NASCAR’s west region corporate sales team.

Peterson has been working with the Iowa Speedway on several initiatives since 2020.

Hosting a three-day Cup Series event is a challenge but Peterson feels the speedway has a capable team to take it on.

Peterson says NASCAR teams will begin testing at the track once spring arrives.

It will be part of a big season at the Iowa Speedway that will include the return of the IndyCar Series.

The Cup Series is at the track June 14th through the 16th.
