Johanna Long’s Quote: “Iowa Speedway is one of the tracks on our schedule that I look forward to racing at the most,” Long says. “It’s always fun to go to tracks that I have experience at. Team 70 has worked extremely hard to bring competitive cars to the track all season long, but unfortunate and uncontrollable circumstances have occurred preventing us from securing our strong runs with solid finishes. I’m hopeful that we can turn everything around at Iowa and begin the rest of the season with strong runs and finishes that the entire ML Motorsports team deserves.”
