The IndyCar series has been coming to Iowa for the Corn Indy 300 since 2007. The track is a .875 mile tri-oval built in Newton, Iowa with 12-14 degree banking in the turns and 10 degree banking on the frontstretch. The backstretch has just four degree banking. If the grandstands are full, nearly 30,000 people will enjoy the festivities

In the six previous races, the retired Dario Franchitti has won the race twice - 2007 & 2009. The late Dan Wheldon won the 2008 edition, Tony Kanaan won the 2010 version from 15th place, Marco Andretti won in 2011, Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2012, and James Hinchcliffe in 2013.

No IndyCar driver has finished in the top five in all seven years. And only three drivers have finished in the top-five four times out of seven at Iowa: Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti, and Scott Dixon.

Iowa is not a predictable event except for one thing....

Yellows.

Maybe more specifically crashes.

In 2007 & 2012, there were seven cars taken out by accidents, four in 2008 & 2010, and six in 2009 & 2011. This stat alone has kept the top of the order shaken up.

Up until last year, no front row starter had ever won at Iowa... that was until James Hinchcliffe broke through for the win.

Oh, and one more thing... In 2014, eight different IndyCar drivers have won eleven different races.

So who is going to be our pick today with only one real trend... Andretti Autosport (winners of the last three races at Iowa), and no one driver dominating the 2014 season.

Scott Dixon. He was the king of the corn yesterday in qualifying and he ought to be able to grab his first win of the 2014 season.

But keep an eye on the rest of the field... a bit of yellow will happen, and a different new winner might step up.

Enjoy the race! it is sure to be another thriller.
