After IndyCar drops Iowa from its program for this year, the Hy-Vee grocery chain will lead the way to bring the open-wheel series back to the 0.875-mile short oval in 2022 for a new multi-year deal. The slanted D-shaped short oval is generally considered one of the funniest IndyCar ovals. It’s definitely better than that shit show they put on in Texas every year.

Over the past year and a half, Hy-Vee has become increasingly involved in IndyCar, sponsoring a Rahal Letterman Lannigan car for the whole season, and a second car for a few selected races. For 2022, the company wants to get more involved in a significant and local way. Next July, the two Double Header weekend races will be featured by the channel, with the 250 on Saturday 23 and the Hy-Vee Salute to Farmers 300 going down on Sunday 24.

The race even has the support of Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, who said, “The State of Iowa made a commitment to the sport of running when building the Iowa Speedway, and today’s exciting announcement of Hy-Vee’s partnership with the series NTT IndyCar reaffirms it.

“Iowa is well suited to be an IndyCar destination for racing fans nationwide, and I encourage Iowa businesses and organizations to support the success of this event in any way they can. “

I really enjoy the races in Iowa and I was more than a little disappointed to see them disappear from the program this year. The IndyCar does a lot of good things, and I think one of the things it does really well is reducing the number of ovals on the program. But if you want to get rid of the ovals, at least keep the good ones. Gateway is good, Texas sucks, keep Indy and Iowa and drop the rest.

I went to a Hy-Vee gas station yesterday in the middle of Iowa, and it was a nice, clean facility.
