It’s official! Cole Whitt will join fellow NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Austin Dillon and NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., in chauffeuring a few lucky fans around the 7/8 mile oval track in Newton, Iowa.
The drivers – in town to promote the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on July 16 and the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on August 6 – will show a few lucky fans what it’s like to race around the track at 140 mph during a special ride-along event at Iowa Speedway on Tuesday, June 28.
Ride-alongs will be offered between 9 a.m. – noon. There are a limited number of ride-along packages available, and they include a pair of tickets to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Prairie Meadows 200 ARCA Series races on Saturday, July 16, a five lap ride-along experience and the chance to ride with a NASCAR driver. Packages go on sale to Iowa Speedway season ticket holders at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 14 for $99. Remaining ride-along packages will be made available to the general public on Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m.
Everyone who purchases a ride-along package will be entered into a drawing to ride shotgun with a NASCAR driver. Winners will be notified by Iowa Speedway and assigned a VIP ride-along time between 11 a.m. – noon.
Stenhouse, Jr., Dillon and Whitt will be available for autographs and a Q&A session in Iowa Speedway’s in-field before and after the VIP ride-alongs.
