Grant Enfinger – 2017 Iowa Preview

Sounding Off – Grant Enfinger:

“I’m definitely looking forward to Iowa. I’ve been fortunate enough to win an ARCA Series race in Iowa, and I really like that track. It’s one of the places that I have been to a few times, just never in a truck. As far as the Truck Series schedule, there’s not really another place that compares to Iowa, so it’s a ‘bigger short track,’ and I’m really looking forward to that.”2017 NASCAR - Portraits
