You won the pole and finished 2nd at Iowa back in June. What do you need to gain an edge on the 20 car?
“The June race was our best race I have had at Iowa since going there in the K&N Series back in 2013. We’ve always been strong here, but Christopher has been the guy to beat the last few years here. I think we hit on something in June that will carry over to the race this week to hopefully close that gap and give Iowa a new person to celebrate with in Victory Lane. It’s by far one of my favorite tracks, so it’s a place I can’t wait to get back to and hopefully we can finish one spot better this time around.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
