Tailgate Tour: Iowa State Group Visits Iowa Speedway
NEWTON, Iowa - The Cyclone Tailgate Tour made a stop at the Iowa Speedway in Newton this afternoon to promote the Iowa Corn Indy 250 and the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series.
Members of the Iowa State contingent, which included athletics director Jamie Pollard, head football coach Paul Rhoads and the voice of the Cyclones John Walters, competed against members of the Iowa athletics staff in various contests hosted by the Iowa Speedway and the Iowa Corn Growers Association.
Iowa Corn became the new corporate sponsor for the Cy-Hawk Series in April.
The Cyclone coaches also got the chance to don fire-proof racing suits and drive go-karts around the Speedway, which will host the Iowa Corn Indy 250 on June 25.
