The Vice President of Iowa Speedway is Craig Armstrong. He’s the always smiling face that we in the media get to see when we cover the Iowa Corn Indy 250. This is a photo of him introducing the drivers at their press conference.
I don’t think you’ll find a bigger supporter and fan of American made corn ethanol and for good reason. The race track has had a very close partnership with the race sponsor, Iowa Corn Promotion Board and Pioneer Hi-Bred. He says they all win in this deal. The race track is really glad to have this race because although there are more race fans per capita in Iowa than any other state in the country, they are under-served in terms of feature races.
