JOHANNA LONG QUOTES:

“I am thrilled to head back to Iowa Speedway. It’s like a short track, but definitely has the characteristics of a mile-and-half track. Not only do I feel like we race well here, the fans are always awesome. The fans always come out to support the Nationwide Series, so that makes it one of the best stops on the schedule. Racing at night also brings even more excitement to the event, and brings back memories of short-track racing under the lights.”
