DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — NASCAR Sprint Cup regular Kurt Busch will run the Nationwide race at Iowa Speedway on May 20.
Busch confirmed he'll race in Iowa for the first time. He will be the first Sprint Cup champion to run on Iowa's 0.875-mile oval.
Danica Patrick, Sam Hornish Jr., Austin Dillon and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who won both Nationwide races at Iowa in 2011, are also slated for the race.
The May event will be the first of four Nationwide and Camping World Trucks series races in Iowa this season. The track will also host an IndyCar race in June.
