Harraka focused on winning at Iowa Speedway

Antelope, CA - It's been six weeks since Paulie Harraka, driver of the No. 12 NAPA Gold Filters Toyota Camry has raced in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. His focus during that time has been directed in completing his sophomore year at Duke University. School is out for the young driver from Bill McAnally Racing and he is now focused on the upcoming race at Iowa Speedway, the Goodyear Dealers of Iowa "200" on May 23rd.

"I'm excited to return to Iowa and race against both the NASCAR KNPS East and West competitors," said Harraka. "I really enjoy racing at Iowa Speedway, as it's got a lot of character. Although most of the track is smooth, there's a bump right in the middle of 1 and 2 that will really upset my Toyota. Fortunately, we've got tough NAPA parts on our racecar, so we'll get through it just fine. Hopefully, as everyone else gets sideways over the bump, we'll be able to drive underneath of them."

"We'll be bringing a brand new car there and I can't wait to see how it drives! We finished 5th in this race last year, and I want to come home with the win this time. Because of the large field, this is an awesome opportunity to pick up a lot of points."
