BlackJack Racing, Iowa Speedway Pre-Race Quotes:
Dexter Bean, driver of the No. 6 Five Star Telecom Chevrolet Monte Carlo :
On Toledo : “It was devastating. We didn’t need that finish. We were taken out by a driver who showed over aggression and wasn’t on the lead lap. We can do nothing about the finish but keep our head high and move forward.”
On Iowa Speedway : “I love Iowa Speedway. We had a chance to win that race last year, but we came up a little short. I have a good feeling about Saturday night’s race and I’m looking forward to putting our team back up front.”
On The Points Race: “We lost some ground at Toledo . We’re still early in the season, but we cannot afford to have any more bad races. Hopefully these last two events will be the worst luck we’ll have all season.”
On The Second Straight Race Being Televised: “It’s good for the ARCA RE/MAX Series races to be live on television. As a team we’re trying to prove we have all the right ingredients while also trying to gain the exposure to help up secure a full-time sponsor. The next couple races are live on television and that’s a bonus for all my family and friends back home at Wisconsin .”
