Germán Quiroga Finishes 14th at Iowa Speedway

On Saturday, Germán Quiroga finished 14th in the Speediatrics 200 at Iowa Speedway. The No. 11 team unloaded the black and red Toyota Tundra on Friday for two practice sessions and Quiroga posted the 19th and 25th fastest times. In the first of three rounds of knockout group qualifying, Quiroga secured the 25th starting spot after encountering a loose handling condition during his qualifying run. As the sun began to set, 32 trucks took the green flag for 200 laps and Quiroga quickly moved up to the 20th position by lap 20 and reported that his Tundra was free on entry to the corner and tight in the center. Under the first caution on lap 44, Quiroga visited pit road where the No. 11 team gave him four fresh Goodyear tires and Sunoco fuel and several adjustments. Quiroga gained several positions and was soon in the 16th position. When the caution clock expired on lap 103, Quiroga again reported that his Tundra was still tight in the middle of the corner and crew chief Butch Hylton called him to pit road for four more tires and fuel, as well as adjustments. He would restart in the 18th position, but on the restart gained four positions to 14th place. On the next caution flag on lap 148, Quiroga would hit pit road for a final four-tire stop with no adjustments. Following a red flag and another caution period leading to a green-white-checkered finish, Quiroga would cross the line in 14th.

Germán Quiroga Quote:                                          
"I wish we could have gotten a better result for Tom DeLoach and the Red Horse Racing team, but I'm very grateful for the opportunity to race. Hopefully we will be able to secure sponsorship and continue this season."
