The NASCAR Nationwide Series shifts gears and rockets into Iowa Speedway to rouse racing fans during just the 10th contest of the young 2012 season. Former champion Kurt Busch recently announced that he’d be joining the wheel-to-wheel joust alongside an already polished lineup of drivers, including Danica Patrick, Elliott Sadler, and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Last year, instead of doing donuts on the track until the skid marks kind of resembled his name, Stenhouse, Jr. made his mark on the Nationwide Series by winning the championship, a run that also included his first race victory.
As competitors zip around the track and up the standings, race-goers soak in the state-of-the-art setup of Iowa Speedway, which was designed by racing icon Rusty Wallace. Pit passes bring fans closer to the action, letting them hear every engine rev and see the neck screws that enable pit-crew members to turn their heads 360 degrees.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
