  • Ryan Truex: “We had a good day at Iowa Speedway with a 14th-place finish. We had some quick pit stops that helped us gain some track position throughout the day which was really important to have for those last restarts. Luckily we were able to stay out of trouble at the end and be in a position to have a really good finish. The guys worked really hard all weekend on this car and we really needed to get back in the top 10 so it’s good that we finally got some momentum before heading into the stretch of road courses.”
  • Matt Kaulig: “We had another great finish this weekend at Iowa Speedway; we finished eighth. It’s another top 10 so we’re really excited about that. We qualified 14th and we ended up moving up all race long. Ryan fought hard all day which was awesome. It was a very exciting finish and a great day for Ryan. So we’ll move on next week to Watkins Glen where we’re really excited about this stretch of road courses. We’ll be in Ohio in two weeks at what I would consider my home track.”
