Quote:

“I really enjoy racing at Iowa Speedway. I had a couple good runs here in the Truck Series in the past, finishing second here last year, and we had some good speed earlier this year at Richmond, which is a track pretty similar to Iowa. But overall, we’ve had a lot of good momentum here lately and I can’t think of a better place than Iowa to keep that going. I’m looking forward to getting there and seeing what we can do.”
