"To race on a short oval is quite a challenge for the IZOD IndyCar drivers. When you combine that with banking at Iowa Speedway, you have one of the most exciting venues on the schedule." - NBC Sports Network's Bob Jenkins

NEW YORK - June 21, 2012 - The NBC Sports Network's coverage of the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series continues this weekend in primetime with the Iowa Corn Indy 250 on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET live from Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. The race will be preceded by a new episode of IndyCar 36 featuring Charlie Kimball at 7:30 p.m. ET, and by qualifying coverage at 8 p.m. ET. Indy Lights coverage airs Saturday at midnight ET.

JENKINS ON THIS WEEK'S RACE: "To race on a short oval is quite a challenge for the IZOD IndyCar drivers. When you combine that with banking at Iowa Speedway you have one of the most exciting venues on the schedule. This year's new format of qualifying races instead of the traditional time trials adds another element of uncertainty."
