New July motorcycle rally planned for Iowa Speedway


The Inaugural Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally will roll into Iowa Speedway, 30 minutes east of Des Moines, for its premiere weekend July 26 to 29.

At the invitation of Iowa Speedway, The Broken Spoke Saloon creator Jay Allen will help develop, in coordination with Speedway personnel, the rally.

“It’s an honor to help produce a rally at such a great facility, and to be apart of the Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally is truly something special,” said Allen.

Iowa Speedway Chairman Conrad Clement reportedly is a longtime motorcycle enthusiast who enjoys attending bike rallies across the nation. “I have known Jay Allen for several years,” Clement said. “His ability to provide customers a top notch experience will be drawn upon as we gear up for the Iowa Grand Motorcycle Rally. This will be the perfect venue to host the inaugural event.”

The preliminary schedule of events includes a bike show, music, celebrity meet-and-greets, motorcycle drag races, sportbike and touring events, a swap meet, and more. Onsite camping will be available. The organizers said they are building a website which will provide all information for those interested in going or exhibiting.
