Johnny Sauter the cream of the crop at Iowa Speedway

Johnny Sauter, driver of the No. 98 Nextant Aerospace/Curb Records Toyota Tundra, has been on an upswing the last two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races. With two top-five finishes in the last two races at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and Gateway (Ill.) Motorsports Park, the ThorSport Racing driver finds himself gaining ground on the competition. Now third in the NCWTS driver point standings, Sauter is a mere 18 points behind second-place and 30 points behind teammate and point leader, Matt Crafton.

 

As the series embarks on the ninth race of the season at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Sauter, a short-track racing "shoe" looks to continue his string of top-five finishes in 2015. In eight starts at Iowa Speedway, Sauter has six top-five's. In fact, the ThorSport Racing driver leads all active NCWTS drivers with the most top-five finishes (6), making him the "cream of the crop" at the 7/8-mile track.

 

Sounding Off - Johnny Sauter:

"When we first started going to Iowa (Speedway), I don't remember using a lot of brake, it was more of a momentum type race track.  Anymore, it's a handling race track and I consider it pretty rough from what it was five years ago. The groove has widened out tremendously, and you see people running all over the race track. It's a short track. It races to me a lot like Richmond does, and I've been pretty successful at Richmond. I've had six top-five finishes at Iowa, no wins, but it's a cool race track, great atmosphere, and I just like the place."
