Chris Buescher on racing at Iowa Speedway

“The thing that’s nice about Iowa is that the groove widens out and you’re able to move around, as long as it doesn’t get too dirty up at the top we’re able to really spread out and use the whole racing surface.  I think that’s why I like it and why I think of it as more of a short track as you’re able to really hustle around any of the lines to make up speed.”
