From the Cockpit – Brandon Jones:
“We’re headed back to a track where I’ve had a lot of success in the past and I have a lot of confidence that we’ll be really strong with our Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 XYO Network Camry at Iowa Speedway this weekend. This track provides very competitive racing with lots of passing and multiple grooves to work with around the track. Iowa Speedway is a very special track to me because it was the site of my first NASCAR win with the K&N Pro Series a few years back. To be able to have a strong run there on Father’s Day would make for a really special memory for my family and me.”

From the Pit Box – Chris Gabehart:
“Iowa is a place that has been really good to our race team and all of Joe Gibbs Racing over the past few years. Our XYO Network team can think of no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than getting out there this weekend and contending for a top-five and possibly a win. With our recent track record there and Brandon’s continued improvement, I think we can really turn some heads there this weekend.”
