Honda at Iowa Speedway

  • The NTT INDYCAR SERIES continues a hectic run of five races over a four-week period this Saturday and Sunday at Iowa Speedway with a doubleheader race weekend, the only doubleheader weekend on the 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule; and a repeat of the format used with the series last visited Iowa 2020.  
  • With a lap distance of just 0.89 miles, the banked Iowa Speedway oval is the shortest circuit on the 2020 schedule. Saturday’s 250 will be a 250-lap event; while Sunday’s HY-VEE Salute To Farmers 300 will run for 300 laps.
  • Honda drivers have scored eight wins in 15 previous races at Iowa Speedway.  Honda’s most recent Iowa Speedway victory came in 2018, when James Hinchcliffe came from mid-field to dominate the final 50 laps and score Honda’s sixth (of an eventual 11) 2018 race wins.  The win also marked the sixth career IndyCar Series victory for Hinchcliffe.
  • In 2015, Honda’s Ryan Hunter-Reay won for the second consecutive year, successfully battling Josef Newgarden as the pair repeated its 1-2 finish from the previous season.
  • As the engine supplier to the IndyCar Series from 2006-2011, Honda powered the winner of the first five races at Iowa Speedway, beginning with Dario Franchitti at the inaugural 2007 event.  Franchitti won again in 2009.  
  • Other Honda-powered race winners at Iowa include Dan Wheldon (2008), Tony Kanaan (2010) and Marco Andretti (2011).
