Iowa Speedway officials announced Thursday that longtime NASCAR sponsor 3M will be the entitlement sponsor for the May 17 Xfinity Series race there.
The 3M 250 will start at 2 pm ET and be televised on Fox Sports 1. The race will conclude a busy race weekend, following the Sprint All-Star Race the night before (May 16) at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
3M has been involved in NASCAR for two decades. More than 150 of its products and technologies are used in Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series.
“Fans, partners and teams that visit Iowa Speedway have come to expect a top-of-the-line experience, and this partnership with 3M will undoubtedly help us meet and exceed these expectations,” Iowa Speedway President Jimmy Small said in a media release.
