Wallace eyes Busch or Truck in Iowa

Rusty Wallace is hoping to get a race in one of NASCAR's three elite series at Iowa Speedway. Iowa Speedway is a 7/8th-mile trioval located in Newton. Wallace, a co-owner of the facility, admits that he hopes to some day host a Busch or Craftsman Truck series race at the track.

"We really, really hope," Wallace said. "I've learned a long time ago to keep my mouth shut. Obviously, we've asked for a truck race or a Busch race. It's in NASCAR President Mike Helton's hands, or Chairman Brian France. We're just trying to do the best job we can right now. I think we're a good candidate for it. We've sold out every race, and all the drivers love it. All I can tell you is that we'd love to have one. Whether we'd get one in '08 or '09, we don't know.

"The whole track right now, with the races we've got, we're making money …we're paying for things, and the fans love it. We sold out the Busch East race. We sold out the IndyCar race. Every single race has been fantastic. … And by the way, Iowa drew the second highest IndyCar television rating ever last week on ABC. We drew a 1.3 rating, which … equaled the average regular Busch race ratings this year." Scenedaily.com
