Iowa's New Speedway Breaks Ground

The city of Newton, Iowa is hoping the NASCAR-sponsored track will bring in much-needed revenue.

"USAC president Rollie Helmling said eventually racing at the Newton track would fit in "perfectly" with plans for the sanctioning body, which features its signature Silver Crown series as well as sprint car and midget racing...

Fans backed the investors in US Motorsport Entertainment Corp., the group behind the track, with cheers, and applauded nearly 20 state lawmakers who helped push through a multimillion-dollar sales tax break for the track."
