We've teamed up with Hy-Vee so you can win tickets to both days of the Hy-Vee IndyCar Race Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, July 22 and 23. In addition to the electrifying speed of the Indy cars, those two days, there will be a ton of live music from some of the top artists of today.

On Saturday, July 22, Carrie Underwood will perform prior to the Hy-Vee Homefront 250. Afterward, fellow country music superstar Kenny Chesney will delight the crowd.

On Sunday, it happens all over again with a pre-race concert from country supergroup Zac Brown Band. Once the checkered flag flies on the Hy-Vee One Step 250 Sunday, pop superstar Ed Sheeran will grace the stage.


So how do you win tickets to be there both days? Enter below to be one of our qualifiers for the Hy-Vee 500, presented by 98.1 KHAK. We always wanted our name tied to a race, even if in this case it's motorized grocery cart races.
