Toledo Recap: After starting 27th, Dominick Casola avoided carnage and chaos to net an 18th place finish at Toledo Speedway two weeks ago in the Hantz Group 200 by Federated Auto Care. Casola was in contention for his first career top-10 effort but a contact from another competitor dashed away those hopes.
No Slouch At Iowa : Despite no experience in an ARCA RE/MAX Series car at Iowa Speedway, Casola does have experience in a USAR (United Speed Alliance Racing) Hooter’s Pro Cup Race at the recently built facility.
Momentum Continues: After notching a career best 16th at Kentucky and a 18th at Toledo Speedway, Casola hopes to turn his top-20 performances into his first top-10 finish on Saturday nigh under the lights. He will join the ARCA sanction for their second ever race held in Newton , Iowa .
Experience High And Low: Car owner Andy Belmont will serve two duties at Iowa Speedway this weekend. In addition to calling the shots as crew chief, Belmont will also serve as Casola’s spotter this weekend.
Point Standings: Competing in only eight of the nine races on the 2007 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule, Casola sits 21st in the championship standings just 45 points from 20th place competitor Brian Keselowski. 18th place competitor Todd Bowsher is not expected to compete this weekend at Iowa assuring a good run at Iowa will at least move Casola up one-position.

Andy Belmont Racing, Iowa Speedway Pre-Race Quotes:
Dominick Casola, driver of the No. 1 A. Casola Farms Ford:
On Toledo : “ Toledo was frustrating. We had a good car, just some dumb bad luck. My Andy Belmont Racing team works too hard to have our good finishes ruined by unprofessional driving. But that’s the way it goes. We’ll bounce back.”
On Iowa Speedway : “Our short track program has been great this year. Andy has given me everything I’ve needed. Now, we just need some help in the luck department and I think everyone will see the finishes this team is accustomed to on the smaller tracks.”
On Andy Belmont: “Personally, I can’t say enough about Andy. He is a great mentor, driver and coach. He has done everything he said he was going to do. He has given me the best equipment he can and we’re making improvements each week. I hope he enjoys me driving for him, cause I sure do.”
On The ARCA RE/MAX Series: “I enjoy competing in the ARCA series. It’s a great place for me to be right now in the stage of my racing career. I’m surrounded by people who want to see me win and excel and as a driver you can’t ask for anything more. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.”
