Iowa Speedway is one of your favorite tracks on the Xfinity Series schedule. You didn’t come away with the finish you wanted in June. What will it take to get you up front this time around?
“We are going to a lot of the tracks on the schedule for the first time together as a team and just really trying to build a notebook and learn each other. Thankfully, this is the second time we are going to Iowa this year, so we already have a race under our belt there and have something to build off of. I think we learned a good bit back in June that should help us this weekend and get us back into the top-5 and contending for a win.”
