Client: Iowa Speedway
Completion Date: 2007
Iowa Speedway is a state-of-the-art 7/8 mile asphalt paved tri-oval race track and motorsports facility located in Newton, Iowa, 30 miles east of Des Moines, Iowa. The track is owned and operated by U.S. Motorsport Corporation and designed by former NASCAR Champion Rusty Wallace, now an anchor and analyst for ABC-TV/ESPN. Iowa Speedway is designed for year-round use and includes 30,000 permanent grandstand seats. It was designed as the first track in the world to protect fans and drivers through the use of SAFER barrier technology surrounding the entire perimeter of the track.
Polysonics designed and specified all technical systems for the project. These systems included sound systems for the grandstands and suites, property-wide data and telecommunications systems, broadcast and media interfaces, fiber optic infrastructures, timing and scoring systems and various audiovisual presentation systems in the project’s meeting spaces. The project was completed on time and under budget.
