The Hawkeye State… The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) will make its first trip of the 2013 season to Iowa Speedway this weekend for the DuPont Pioneer 250.

This Week’s Camaro… The No. 30 Qualcomm team will have chassis TSM-335 for Saturday night’s race at Iowa Speedway. TSM-335 was previously used by Piquet Jr. at Bristol Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway (RIR), where he earned a top finish of 14th at RIR.

Got Questions… Come see Piquet Jr. participate in a Q&A session on the grandstand concourse at the Kix 101.1 Stage on Saturday, June 8 at 2:15 p.m. CDT.

Dover Recap… Making his first career NNS start at Dover International Speedway last weekend, Nelson Piquet Jr. looked to tame the famous ‘Monster Mile’ in the 5-hour ENERGY 200.

After battling all afternoon, Piquet Jr. brought the No. 30 WORX Yard Tools Chevrolet Camaro home in 20th place.

Nelson Piquet Jr. on his first NNS trip to Iowa:

“I am looking forward to getting back on the track and making my first career Nationwide Series start at Iowa this weekend. We have had some success at Iowa in the Truck Series, so hopefully we can use that to our advantage this weekend. Iowa reminds me a lot of racing at Richmond. My guys have worked hard all week preparing the No. 30 Qualcomm Chevy for this weekend. If we stay smart, patient and have a little bit of luck, I think we will come home with a great finish.”
