Meet Nicole in Iowa Tonight & This Weekend

by Nicole Hoffman

This weekend Team heads off to the new Iowa Speedway to compete in the 5th round of the SunTrust MOTO-ST Series. This race will prove to be exciting on all fronts! We just came off of Road America last weekend and had a great 2nd place finish but we were plagued with issues in post-race inspection, which we don't necessarily agree with, but that is another story for another day. We have a lot of momentum going into Iowa and we are excited about yet another podium finish.

What is really great about this event is that we run it with Grand-Am and the Daytona Prototypes. We have heard that the folks in Iowa are great motorsports fans and it should be a good crowd – not to mention, Mark Martin (NASCAR driver!) will be racing one of the Daytona Prototypes. The excitement level is always higher when we have a joint event with those guys. It is rare that an event weekend is combined with motorcycles and cars on a road course. Logistically it is challenging because the track needs to be prepared and cleaned up for the bikes since the cars lay down so much rubber.

There is a pre-race party on Thursday night for fans, teams, officials, everyone! We will be raffling off Kryptonite products so if you are in the area of Newton, IA be sure to attend! We can guarantee a great time!
