From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “It has been nearly a month since we last raced at Bristol, Charles and all the guys at Precision Performance Motorsports have been working hard to fine tune and prepare for this weekend’s race at Iowa and it will pay off. Iowa is a track we’ve struggled at in the past, but I’m excited about getting back on track Saturday.”
On top of Box with Crew Chief Charles Denike: “I am really looking forward to Iowa Speedway with Gray this weekend. The Casey’s General Store 150 is a great race for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series and it is always exciting to combine with the West series for the two Iowa Speedway races each year. We are debuting our first new Five Star flange fit composite body on the No. 12 Drink Krispy Kreme Coffee Toyota Camry. The car looks great and I am ready to get to work with Gray in practice on Saturday.
