NEWTON, Iowa — Christopher Bell likes that the NASCAR Cup Series is at Iowa Speedway for the first time. The .875-mile track isn't the one he remembers. Bell has seven top five finishes in nine starts at the track in NASCAR's other series, including two wins in the Xfinity Series. But the track has a different look this weekend after a partial repaving in the turns. The top-to-bottom racing that was a characteristic of the track in the past may not be there for Sunday's 350-lap race. It's still a popular event and an estimated 40,000 fans are expected for Sunday's race.
