NOTES:
The Iowa 200 at Iowa Speedway is the 15th race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

Built in 2006, Iowa Speedway has progressive banking from 12-14 degrees in all of its turns. There are 10 degrees of banking on the frontstretch and four degrees on the backstretch. The length of the frontstretch is 1,075 feet, and the backstretch measures 869 feet.

NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace led the design team for Iowa in the first- ever driver-designed racetrack. Wallace played an integral part of the overall design and layout of this track.

There have been six truck races held at Iowa. The series competed there once each season from 2009-2011. This track hosted two events last year. Timothy Peters won there in July.

Mike Skinner won the inaugural truck race at Iowa, the Lucas Oil 200, on Sept. 5, 2009.

Seven drivers on the entry list for this weekend have competed in the previous six races at Iowa: Norm Benning, James Buescher, Matt Crafton, Ron Hornaday Jr., Peters, Johnny Sauter and Ryan Sieg.

Peters has two wins at Iowa, which is more than any other driver. His first victory there came in July 2012.

Ryan Blaney is the only driver entered that scored his first career truck victory at Iowa. Blaney won there one year ago. Austin Dillon, the 2011 truck champion, recorded his maiden win at this track in July 2010. Dillon is now a competitor in the Nationwide Series.

German Quiroga claimed his first pole in the series at Iowa in July.

Three drivers on the entry list made their truck debut at Iowa: Dakoda Armstrong (July 2011), Justin Jennings (July 2012) and Jimmy Weller III (July 2013).

Crafton, the current points leader, is the only driver who has posted top-10 finishes in all six truck races at Iowa. Sauter recorded five straight top- five finishes before placing 11th there in July.

The next race is the Sept. 13 EnjoyIllinois.com 225 at Chicagoland Speedway. James Buescher is the defending race winner.
