2014 Iowa: Johnny Sauter NASCAR Truck Race Recap

2014 Iowa: Johnny Sauter NASCAR Truck Race Recap

The American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway in Newton was the ninth race on the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule for Johnny Sauter and his ThorSport Racing team. Although, the seasoned veteran has seen his fair share of success at the 7/8-mile track, Sauter's day seemed to be as gloomy as the weather that plagued the Midwestern track most of the afternoon. Fighting a Tundra that was "plowing in the corners," the Wisconsin native struggled to find the balance he needed to continue his strong performance in the Hawkeye State.

Starting from the outside of row nine, in the18th position, Sauter ran as high as 10th and as low as 26th throughout the 200-lap event. Scored 12th, just past the halfway mark, the ThorSport Racing driver was forced to bring his SmokeySnuff.com Tundra to pit road under green at lap 115 for a flat right front tire. The unfortunate chain of events mired the No.98 team multiple laps down to the race leaders and relegated Sauter to an 18th-place finish, two laps down to race winner, Erik Jones.

• In eight starts at Iowa Speedway, Sauter has led 24 laps en route to six top-five and six top-10 finishes
• Sauter fell from first to third in the 2014 NCWTS driver point standings following the American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway, a mere seven points back from ThorSport Racing teammate Matt Crafton
• In 2014, Sauter has led 64 laps en route to four top-five and seven top-10 finishes
• According to NASCAR's Loop Data statistics in 2014, Sauter ranks third in Average Running Position (8.493), and Laps in the Top-15 with 1322, and fourth in Driver Rating (95.6)
• The American Ethanol 200 was the 11th straight win for Toyota, dating back to Phoenix International Raceway (November 2013) when Erik Jones visited victory lane - marking the longest active win streak by any manufacturer in the NCWTS

"It was a tough night for us, definitely not the night we were hoping for. We struggled from the time we unloaded. Plowing, tight, chattering the front tires - we just couldn't get it dialed-in. I was running 12th when the right front tire went down, and I had to pit under green. We lost a lot of track position and went multiple laps down. A solid run at Eldora and we can rebound from this."
