New Information From Iowa Brings Better Opportunities Chevrolet Camaro

Iowa was a decent race for us back in June, but I think we have a much better idea of what to expect this time around. It was a bit of an unknown for me and Greg (Ives, crew chief) because neither of us had been there and we didn’t have a lot to go off of. The race was a struggle at times. Still, we came out of it with a ton of information and some new notes that we will use to our advantage this week. “It’s going to be important to get all we can each week because the schedule isn’t going to get any easier, especially with those road courses coming up on the schedule the next two weeks.”

One of Regan Smith’s 13 top-10 finishes this season came at Iowa Speedway in June. The effort was part of a string of 11 consecutive top-10s that began at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and continued through Smith’s victory at Michigan International Speedway.

In the five short track races to date this season, JR Motorsports team cars have combined to score one top-five and five top-10 finishes. Smith’s fifth-place effort at Richmond International Raceway marks the team’s best short track finish this season.

Smith and the 7 team will bring chassis No. 777 to Iowa Speedway. Smith raced this chassis to top-10 finishes in each of its three races (Darlington, Iowa and Loudon). His average finish with chassis 777 is 7.3.

Regan Smith will join a number of other Nationwide Series drivers for an autograph session at Iowa Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:10 p.m. local time. The session will be located in the fan concourse under the turn four grandstands.
