  • Truex comes to Michigan with three consecutive top-10 finishes (Charlotte, Pocono, Michigan) under his belt, a Kaulig Racing team record.
  • Truex: “This weekend we’re going to Iowa Speedway. We’re fresh off three top-10 finishes so we’re looking to keep the momentum going. Iowa is a short track similar to Richmond but speeds are a little faster. I’ve been there a few times and I had a good run in the truck last year so I kind of have a good idea of what we need going in. Iowa’s gotten really rough and bumpy over the past few years so it’s going to be crucial that Chris (Rice) and this team get the car over the bumps really well. Hopefully we can get four (top 10s) in a row, maybe and top five, and hopefully we’ll battle for a win.”
