Driver Scott Lagasse Jr.'s Thoughts on the 2009 Season:

"I have been very fortunate to have such a great team and sponsor backing me over the course of the season. We've had a lot of highs and lows and I am disappointed that it is coming to end after Iowa. The team has left the door open for me to return possibly later in the season so I'll remain optimistic."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Iowa Speedway:

"There has been so much talk about the Nationwide Series going to Iowa and I'm looking forward to it. This is a new track and will give us a level playing field so to speak. We'll all be like rookies out on the race track this weekend."
