The event that is the IWK 250 continues to grow, and grow, and grow, at Riverside International Speedway.
If you missed the 2014 edition on July 19, or just want to relive it, you can listen to the entire audio broadcast by our friends at Race Time Radio.
The IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body is the marquis event at Riverside International Speedway and one of the premier super late model races in North America. Named for the IWK Health Care Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the event not only boasts some of the best stock car racing in Canada but helps raise awareness and funds for the IWK Foundation, totalling more than $190,000 since the IWK affiliation was formed together with Steve Lewis Auto Body in 2007. In 2013 the Chisholm family, who own the track, made history when they donated $1,000,000 to the IWK Foundation as part of the pre-race festivities.
Since 2007 the event has attracted top NASCAR racers including Aric Almirola (2008), Marcos Ambrose (2010, 2011), Matt Crafton (2014), Ricky Craven (2007), Brad Keselowski (2013), Joey Logano (2012), David Reutimann (2009), and Regan Smith (2007, 2008, 2009). Smith is the only NASCAR racer to win the event, a feat he accomplished in 2008.
