A group called the Green Flag Alliance is attempting to bring a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race to Iowa Speedway in Newton, according to the AP [1]. The group, which is made up of Iowans including Newton Mayor Chaz Allen, is interested in attracting the Cup series because a Sprint Cup race can generate as much as $150 million to the local economy.

Iowa Speedway will host two Nationwide Series events this season, May 22nd and August 6th. The speedway is also hosting the IndyCar Series on June 25th.
