Visiting my son in Des Moines over Thanksgiving. He offered to go racing while there if we could find a track. The ones listed on Slotblog appear to be either closed or invisible (Boone and Armstrong). Does anyone know of a commercial or club track in Iowa?

Yes both are closed. Right now I don't know of any commercial raceway in Iowa. There is one 10 miles outside of Burlington in Illinois called WISCRS.
