2014 Iowa: Dylan Kwasniewski NASCAR Nationwide Race Recap

Dylan Kwasniewski made his first-career NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start at Iowa Speedway during Sunday afternoon's Get To Know Newton 250 and, despite suffering a right-front tire malfunction to his No. 42 up & up™ by Target Chevrolet, the 18-year-old rookie drove to an 11th-place finish. During the weekend's first and only NNS practice, Kwasniewski and his Turner Scott Motorsports team laid down the fastest lap of the afternoon to pace the hour-and-a-half practice session.

Kwasniewski then went out Saturday evening and laid down a time of 23.243, which was good enough for the 5th starting position for Sunday afternoon's shootout. Shortly after the green flag waved in the nation's heartland, Kwasniewski settled into the top 10 and was content on logging laps and taking care of his up & up Chevy. During the first caution on lap 41, Kwasniewski came down pit road and received four tires, fuel and adjustments. After the restart, Kwasniewski again settled into the top 10 and continued to take care of his car during the long green-flag run. The field saw two more cautions, allowing Kwasniewski to visit pit road and settle into the sixth position for another long green-flag run. On lap 211, however, Kwasniewski told crew chief Scott Zipadelli that he thought he had a tire going down. Not taking any chances, Zipadelli called Kwasniewski down pit road. During his time on pit road, the caution flag flew, causing Kwasniewski to go a lap down and restart from the tail end of the longest line. Despite the setback, Kwasniewski continued to battle for the remaining portion of the race, picking off competitors one at a time, and ultimately brought the No. 42 up & up Chevy home in the 11th position.

Dylan Kwasniewski on Racing at Iowa Speedway:
"Today was a good day for our team. My guys at Turner Scott Motorsports built me a great race car for this weekend. I think we had a top-five car, but unfortunately we weren't able to get the finish to prove it due to our tire problem. The car was really dialed in all weekend and we were running consistent top-five lap times all afternoon. I can't thank Zippy and these guys enough for all their hard work. It was a great experience to get behind the wheel of the No. 42 car this weekend and represent Target's up & up brand."
First Practice Position: 1 Fastest Lap: 23.320 sec. Laps: 46
Qualifying Position: 5 Fastest Lap Time: 23.243
Race Position: 11 Completed/Total: 250/250 Led: 0

What's Next - The NNS will return home to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the History 300 on Saturday, May 24. Tune in to ABC for live coverage beginning at 2:45 p.m. EDT
