No. 28 DHL Honda

Iowa Speedway is certainly a special place for me and the team as a whole. I love short oval racing, but Iowa is one of my favorites. We’ve had lots of success here in the past, winning three times, however with a new car and a completely different aero package we have our work cut out for us to develop a new setup that will suit this car. We’re coming off a productive test, so we’re looking to keep the momentum we have rolling into the Iowa Corn 300 weekend and bring home another good result for the DHL Honda.”

No. 98 U.S. Concrete / Curb Honda

“Iowa hasn’t been very nice to me the last few years, during the aerokit era, but I’m looking to re-gain my strength there. We had a strong test last week and we’ll build on that for the race this weekend.”


“Iowa has been one of my favorite ovals since day one. I love how short, fast, banked, and bumpy it is. We had four very strong cars in the test last week so hopefully we can convert that into a big result for the NAPA team in order to get the momentum swinging back in our favor once more.”

No. 26 Relay / Group 1001 Honda

“I have a lot of good memories from Iowa coming through the ladder series. It’s a place that’s always challenging to race and that adds to what makes it a good show. We had one of our strongest tests last week there, so I’m really excited for what we can accomplish this weekend in the Relay car!”

No. 98 Andretti Steinbrenner Racing / Curb Mazda

“I’m super excited to get back to racing on an oval this weekend. Iowa’s always a tough, hot race so we’ll need to have good balance that won’t degrade tires.”

No. 27 MEXICO #AWorldOfItsOwn Mazda

“Iowa – it’s our second oval of the season. Last time I raced at this track was in 2015 in the Pro Mazda series and I finished on the podium, so I’m looking to move up two spots better this time around –  and getting my first oval win of this season. It’s a challenging, yet physical and fun oval so I am anxious to get out on track.”

No. 48 Journey Mazda

“I’m excited to get back in the car at Iowa this weekend. I’m really starting to enjoy ovals a lot more and we had a really good test at Gateway last week so I’m feeling very confident going into race weekend.”

No. 28 K-Line Insulators, USA Mazda

“Everyone on the No. 28 crew is excited for Iowa. It’s definitely one of my favorite races of the season. I love short ovals – it’s a different experience than at IMS because at this track you’re really in the driver’s seat. Last year’s race was a lot of fun – we saw different cars taking various lines through the corners and I think that made the action enjoyable for the fans so this will definitely be a race to watch this year. Judging off of our pace last year I’m looking forward to starting this weekend off strong and having a good qualifying effort and seeing what we can do in the race.”
