Today, Hy-Vee announces that award-winning artists Luke Combs and Post Malone will lead the star-studded entertainment lineup for next summer’s Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend, July 12-14, 2024. Entering its third year in 2024, Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend brings capacity crowds to Iowa Speedway for a turbocharged blend of thrilling racing, world-class live music and three days of fun and excitement. With two of the most popular artists in music hosting concerts on both Saturday and Sunday, the 2024 Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend will continue the tradition of delivering an amazing entertainment experience for fans.
Luke Combs will perform on the Hy-Vee Stage on Saturday, July 13, before the first NTT INDYCAR SERIES race of the unique doubleheader weekend. Post Malone will rock the stage on Sunday, July 14, following the final INDYCAR SERIES race of the weekend. Both concerts will feature a 90-minute performance on the trackside Hy-Vee Stage, in front of the main grandstands at Iowa Speedway.

Luke Combs is one of the biggest names in country music today with multiple ACM and CMA Awards, including being named CMA Entertainer of the Year in both 2021 and 2022. His newest album, Gettin’ Old, further establishes Combs as one of music’s most authentic and powerful voices. He recently earned his record-breaking, 16th consecutive No. 1 single with his version of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” which earned Combs his seventh GRAMMY® Award nomination.
The 2024 Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend will represent the first-ever live performance in Central Iowa for Post Malone. An eight-time diamond-certified GRAMMY® Award-nominated phenomenon, Malone regularly rewrites history, blurs boundaries, and incites internet-breaking conversation with every move. His current self-titled album is yet another shift in sound and features all live instrumentation produced by Malone and his longtime collaborators Louis Bell and Andrew Watt. In June, he received the Songwriters Hall of Fame “Hal Davis Starlight Award.”
"Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend has become a true destination event, showcasing everything that is great about racing and about Iowa," said Jeremy Gosch, Hy-Vee's vice chairman and CEO. "We're obviously very excited about how the weekend has been received the past two years, and we know the 2024 event will be just as great. We look forward to bringing these artists to Iowa and providing another outstanding weekend of entertainment."
Additional entertainment acts for the 2024 Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend will be announced in the coming weeks as next summer’s festival at Iowa Speedway continues to build momentum.
Since the inaugural event in 2022, Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend has become one of the most popular annual events on the INDYCAR calendar. This year’s weekend surpassed total attendance numbers from the 2022, drawing approximately 85,000 fans over the course of three days to the “Fastest Short Track on the Planet” – an all-time high for an INDYCAR event at Iowa Speedway.
