Regarding the Iowa Race: “As frustrating as Mid-Ohio was with some of our electrical gremlins, I know our whole team just wants to go to Iowa and rebound in dramatic fashion. We don’t want to let up, we want to win that race and take our trophy home. It’s a place both Shannon and I havent won at but we were close last year. If we do our job, this year should be our year to win there.”
