Grant Enfinger Quote:

“I’m really excited that ARCA decided to return to Iowa Speedway. It’s awesome to come in there being the most recent winner from the last time we raced there in 2013. The track has probably aged a lot since then and we need to be prepared for that. You are constantly looking for grip, because the bumps are pretty brutal in turns one and two. I’m hoping to get dialed in and bring home another great finish with our Allegiant Travel Chevrolet and everyone at GMS Racing.”
