Ross Chastain on Racing at Iowa: “We were able to earn a decent amount of points last week at Texas, which was our goal,” said Chastain. “I really enjoy racing at Iowa, so I definitely think we have another good shot this weekend to have a solid run and keep moving towards our goal of making the playoffs.”

Making the Playoffs: Chastain collected NGOTS points for the first time last week at Texas Motor Speedway.  With his 10th-place finish, Chastain earned 38 points.  Entering this weekend’s race, Chastain is currently 64 points outside of the top-20.  In order to make the Playoffs for a chance to win the Championship, Chastain must win a race and be inside the top-20 in NGOTS points within the next seven races.

Chastain at Iowa: Chastain has five NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts at Iowa Speedway.  In 2013, Chastain earned the pole and led 116 laps, ultimately earning a second-place finish. 

In addition, Chastain has made eight NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at Iowa Speedway, earning two top-five finishes and three top-10 finishes.

On the Truck: The No. 44 Chevrolet will carry the TrüNorth™ colors at Iowa Speedway.  TrüNorth™ is the leading provider of commercial asset related warranty programs and services for dealers, fleets, owner-operators, and commercial finance companies.

The paint scheme that Chastain will run was designed by Paul Teutul, Jr. of Paul Jr. Designs and star of “American Chopper”, in partnership with TrüNorth™.
