This Week's IAVA Chevrolet Camaro at Iowa Speedway ... Cale Conley will pilot chassis No. 107 in Sunday afternoon's NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Iowa Speedway. This Richard Childress Racing-prepared Chevrolet saw track action last month at Richmond International Raceway where Conley earned a 15th-place finish. Additionally this chassis ran four times in 2013 with Dakoda Armstrong, Paul Menard, Ryan Gifford and Kevin Harvick behind the wheel. Collectively, they earned two third-place finishes at Michigan International Speedway and Dover International Speedway, and three top-10 finishes. This workhorse has raced on six separate occasions in 2012 earning one pole award with Paul Menard at Texas Motor Speedway, four top-fives and six top-10 finishes.

Back in the Driver's Seat ... On Sunday afternoon, Conley will make his first competitive laps at Iowa Speedway in the Nationwide Series. The 21-year-old driver is no stranger to the Newton, Iowa track with four K&N East Pro Series starts to his credit. Conley has earned one pole award (2012), two top five and three top-10 finishes. His best finish was third place in the spring 2012 event, along with four laps led.

About IAVA ... Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) will adorn the hood of Conley's No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro this weekend at Iowa Speedway. IAVA is the first and largest organization for new veterans and their families, with nearly 300,000 members and supporters nationwide. IAVA is dedicated to standing with the 2.8 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives. The organization supports new veterans in health, education, employment and building a lasting community for vets and their families.

They Say It's Your Birthday ... Conley celebrated his 22nd birthday on Tuesday May 13th. Born in 1992, the world was a different place than today. Kriss Kross' "Jump" was the No. 1 song on the Billboard 100 charts and "Basic Instinct" was the No. 1 movie at the U.S. box office. Conley share's a birthday with Stephen Colbert, Robert Pattinson, Dennis Rodman, Darius Rucker, Stevie Wonder and Buckethead from Guns & Roses.

Do you have extra confidence heading to Iowa since you've run well there in the K&N Series?
"Not so much extra confidence, because the K&N Series cars handle so different. Looking back to Richmond (International Raceway) I ran well there in K&N, and thought that would carry over to the Nationwide Series, but it didn't since each car handles so different."

What's your mindset heading into Iowa this weekend?
"I'm heading into this weekend with the mindset of it all still being new. I'll utilize Friday's test session to log laps and get acclimated to the feel of the car on track. When we hit the track on Saturday for practice, I'll be pretty up to speed on what to expect and have a strong mindset to communicate with Nick (Harrison - crew chief) and the feel I need."
