CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Mark E. Dismore brought the Monster.com/WorldBestBuy.com Chevrolet to a 24th place finish after the ASA ACDelco Series' WorldBestBuy.com 250 at Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Saturday.

"We started off strong and were able to move up to seventh," Dismore said. "We were just biding our time until the right front tire blew. We lost three laps in the pits replacing the tire."

Dismore continued on, but was struggling with a pushing racecar. "We picked up a bad push, but it was manageable," Dismore said. "We lost a bunch of track time as it continued to get worse. Then we got spun out and knocked in the front end. At that point, we had an aerodynamic push and I was just trying to finish. We did the best we could and hopefully I-70 will go better for this Monster.com/WorldBestBuy.com team."

"It's a shame we lost those laps early on," said Randy Herzog, co-owner of Herzog Motorsports. "We didn't see the usual attrition we see at these races so we had to race to the end to maintain our position. We have a strong team led by Howie Lettow and they'll bounce back and be ready for I-70."

Dismore continues to show improvements in his qualifying runs. For the second week in a row, Dismore qualified in the top-15. The No. 44 Herzog Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo lined up 10th on the starting grid for the WorldBestBuy.com 250.
