Pro Mazda Race at Iowa Moved to Laguna Seca

By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief

The Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires has altered its schedule and will move its race date at Iowa Speedway to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca as part of a tripleheader weekend season finale.

The series scrapped its round at Iowa, which was set to take place on July 10, due a low amount of car entries in the field.

“I want to thank [Iowa Speedway president] Jimmy Small for giving us the option to move our race off of next weekend’s schedule,” said Dan Andersen, owner and CEO of Andersen Promotions.

“Iowa Speedway produces some great oval racing and it is unfortunate that we didn’t have what we felt was a viable car count to meet not only the track’s expectations but the fans as well. At this stage we will look forward to what is a pivotal round in the Indy Lights championship on July 10 and a return for Pro Mazda in 2017.”

Pro Mazda’s next scheduled event is July 15-17, a doubleheader weekend on the Streets of Toronto.
