Justin Lofton and the No. 6 J.D. Heiskell/J6Ink Team Battle Heat and Handling Challenges to Finish 19th in Iowa

Justin Lofton started the No. 6 J.D. Heiskell/J6Ink Chevrolet from the 16th position in Sunday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway but was plagued with handling challenges resulting in a 19th-place finish. Despite the setting sun it was still hot and humid when Lofton took the green flag in the second annual Fan Appreciation 200 presented by New Holland. The driver of the No. 6 Chevrolet Silverado quickly fell in the running order while he battled with the tight-handling machine. By lap 20 Lofton was running in the 25th position. During routine yellow and green-flag pit stops, the Bryan Berry-led crew made adjustments in an effort to alleviate Lofton's struggles. Despite their best efforts, the Westmorland, Calif., native reported that the tight-handling condition persisted. He worked lap by lap to gain ground and survived two green-white-checkered flag attempts before ultimately bringing the No. 6 J.D. Heiskell/J6Ink Chevrolet home in the 19th position.

Justin Lofton Quote:

"We definitely did not have the race that we had hoped to at Iowa Speedway. The J.D. Heiskell/J6Ink Chevrolet Silverado was just way too tight. We were sliding the right front on entry, and I had to slow the center of the corners down a lot in order to maintain control because it was so unpredictable. We'll head home and regroup for Friday's race at Chicagoland Speedway. I want to thank all the guys for their hard work. They never gave up, and battled through some pretty serious heat this weekend."
