The 2018 Heartlands Driving Tour starts at the Iowa Speedway in Newton. The Speedway is a 7/8ths mile oval and 1.3 mile road course designed by NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace.

Attendees may arrive at the Speedway between 7 and 8 a.m. Please enter via Iowa Speedway Dr. and follow the signs to the credentials building. After that, go through the tunnel to the infield/media center. The time at the track should total about 2 hours with a program and time to drive on the track.

Afterwards, the route back to Des Moines is still being finalized but the drive will be approximately 90-100 miles ending at the Stine Barn in West Des Moines. There will be plenty of time for everyone to get back from the driving tour to attend the Exhibitors Banquet.

Cost of the Tour is $35 per person and includes lunch. Net proceeds benefit Children’s Cancer Connection. The Tour, presented by the Iowa Automotive Heritage Foundation, is a rain or shine event. While any vehicle may be driven on the tour, some will drive their vintage or sporting vehicles. Limited to the first 100 who register.
