I watched it online. It didn't sound like tucker was very happy with it. It is crazy that there is trees lining the side of the track with branches hanging out.

I was there and tucker wasn't the only unhappy racer. Couldn't see much as spectator either. Fun tho.

The camera coverage of the race was probably one of the best that I've watched. It looked nearly impossible to pass without moving someone out of the way. I think it's great to have the event in Iowa but It's gotta be right for the event.

Yep. They'll need lots of trees removed to improve safety and viewing for the crowd. Pits were fun to check out.

The biggest issue at the track this weekend was ice - warm temps , then freezing even with the tiller you cannot break it up to turn it into what the guys are used to racing on. The track would break down after every heat with huge holes and sketchy faces.

Id be shocked if they have another race in Iowa.
