James Buescher on Returning to Iowa Speedway:
“I won there last year in the truck and I’ve been in position to win several truck races there and ARCA races and Hooters Pro Cup races. It’s a place that I felt like I had earned a win several times and had never gotten one and I finally got one last year. It was a hard one to capture, but we did it. We led the last couple laps and won there. I enjoy going to that race track — it’s a cool race track and I’ve been going there since the year after it opened in multiple different series. I feel like I have a lot of laps around there and understand where you need to be and how you need to have your car setup. I seem to run well there.”
