NASCAR Truck Series returns to Newton

Posted:

NEWTON (KWWL) -- The NASCAR Truck Series will return to the Iowa Speedway Sunday for the second annual Lucas Oil 200.

Drivers got in their final practice runs this weekend which included last year's champion Mike Skinner.  Skinner says he likes coming to Iowa as he believes winning here is more about the driver than it is the car.

"We go to these places that you just run wide open all the way around the race track until the race gets going, and it shows you where your trucks are," says Skinner, "It shows you who's done their homework.  Here maybe the driver can mean a bit more than some of these places where it's more the vehicle."

The green flag drops Sunday in Newton at 1:00 PM.
