IndyCar at Iowa – Start time, how to watch, entry list & more

The Hy-VeeDeals.com 250 presented by DoorDash and Hy-Vee Salute to Farmers 300 presented by Google will be the 16th and 17th IndyCar events at Iowa Speedway. Josef Newgarden is the only entered driver to win at Iowa Speedway more than once having scored three wins here. The only other active winners are Simon Pagenaud and Helio Castroneves, which means Iowa is one of only three tracks on the 2022 schedule at which neither Scott Dixon nor Will Power has won

Both Power and Dixon have started from pole at Iowa three times, and of the entered drivers this weekend, they have led 131 and 130 laps respectively. This is dwarfed by three-time winner Newgarden’s tally of 1150 laps led, and the two-time champion’s consistency is impressive too: he has scored top-four finishes in six of his last eight Iowa starts.

Andretti Autosport has won seven of the 15 previous races at Iowa Speedway, with Dario Franchitti, Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti Ryan Hunter-Reay (three times) and James Hinchcliffe. Team Penske has four wins via Castroneves, Newgarden (twice) and Pagenaud. Chip Ganassi Racing has two wins, thanks to the late Dan Wheldon and Franchitti.

Dixon will make his 299th and 300th consecutive Indy car starts, while Castroneves will match A.J. Foyt’s tally of 369 total Indy car starts.
