New Additions To Nationwide, Truck Schedules?

8308150E87C846D49A50701AEF01BEFCNASCAR Chairman Brian France says he could see a second Camping World Truck race on dirt and said series officials have talked about a Nationwide All-Star event.

France made those comments Thursday in an interview with the Des Moines Register.

France talked to Iowa media in anticipation of Iowa Speedway – purchased in November by NASCAR – hosting the Nationwide Series this weekend.

On the issue of a Nationwide All-Star race, France told the newspaper: “We’ve talked about the (Nationwide) all-star event for a long time. We just haven’t found the right combination of venue or whatever.’’

Asked if Iowa Speedway is in that discussion, France told the newspaper: “Yes, of course it is.’’

France also was asked about the Trucks running on the dirt at Knoxville Raceway. The Trucks ran on dirt last year at Eldora Speedway in Ohio and return there July 23.

France told the newspaper “I could” see the Trucks running in Knoxville.

“I think they were successful (at Eldora) and surprised a lot of people. I thought it was good.’’

France reaffirmed that NASCAR is not looking at putting a Sprint Cup race at Iowa Speedway.

“We just don’t have a focus on that at all,’’ France told the Des Moines Register. “Our focus is to get the facility managed in a different way.’’
