On Sunday at 10:30 a.m. CT, Iowa Speedway will host another installment of the popular Kids Q&A session. The exclusive “Q&A" sessions allow our younger fans to pose their own questions to star drivers. Recognizing that kids are often interested in hearing answers to less conventional questions than those typically posed to drivers by media. Team Penske driver, Simon Pagenaud, will be in for an amusing press conference as he fields questions on a wide assortment of topics at Crash Course presented by U.S. Cellular located on the Concourse outside Turn 1.
Parents are also invited to attend. Like working press, no autographs of drivers or racing personalities will be allowed.
