Today is Father’s Day and even though the Cup Series is off this weekend, there’ll still be NASCAR racing at Iowa Speedway.
Lots of racing, in fact.

The rescheduled Truck race will take the green flag shortly after Noon ET, while the CircuitCity.com 250 Xfinity Series race will go off at 5:30 p.m. ET.
wunderground.com forecasts a temperature of 75 degrees and an 11 percent chance of rain at the start of the Truck race. Later in the day, wunderground.com forecasts a temperature of 77 degrees and a 14 percent chance of rain at the start of the Xfinity Series race.
