SOLID RUN AT IOWA SPEEDWAY SEES POINTS GAIN FOR MYATT SNIDER
“We probably had the best long-run truck of the entire field. I was able to absolutely fly by everybody tonight. We had a long tire run towards the end. Unfortunately, the right front started getting blistered, so we didn’t have nearly as good of speed as we had before, but we were still good enough to maintain a top-10 finish. I’m just really proud of my guys. For how we started this day, it’s just really incredible and goes to show how strong this team is. I’ve believed in them all year – we’re a strong team and we show that day in and day out by how hard we work. Our results show on the track. I’m really proud of everyone for giving me a great Carolina Nut Co. / Louisiana Hot Sauce Ford F-150.”

GRANT ENFINGER SETTLES FOR AN 11TH-PLACE FINISH IN IOWA
“Overall a tough night for this Protect The Harvest team. We got caught-up in messes a few times throughout the night, but our ThorSport Racing crew worked hard to get the truck fixed every time, and fired off some really good pit stops. It just wasn’t the night we were looking for.”

TOUGH LUCK CONTINUES FOR BEN RHODES AT IOWA SPEEDWAY
“We really struggled at Iowa Speedway from the time we unloaded, and I never felt like we really made any gains in practice. We qualified 11th, and we were back there in some iffy situations, around some crazy traffic. One thing led to another, and we got caught up in two wrecks. Unfortunately that ended our night with a brand-new truck, and we had to putt around for the rest of the race. I think there were some big learning takeaways from this. You always learn every time you hit the race track, so we know how to better prepare going forward.”

CRAFTON STARTS A TRACK-BEST SECOND AND LEADS LAPS, BUT A LATE-RACE INCIDENT RELEGATES THE MENARDS DRIVER TO A 26TH-PLACE FINISH AT IOWA
“Just racing around a bunch of people that are weapons, at the end of the day. I was trying to give my teammate room and the 52 moved up, we were racing three-wide, and cut a left front (tire). It’s just the way our year has been.”
