Butler, III Heads to Iowa Determined and Confident

DENVER, N.C. (April 17, 2008) - Ken Butler, III arrives in Newton, Iowa this weekend comfortable with his surroundings at the familiar track. Butler piloted the No. 22 Aaron's Lucky Dog Dream Machine at the speedway last year and in recent weeks while testing with his Eddie Sharp Racing team. Butler and his Lucky Dog Dream Machine Team enter this weekend eleventh in ARCA RE/MAX Series Championship points and strong with confidence.

"We had a really good test here a few weeks ago," said Butler. "The car was really fast and solid. I'm really looking forward to racing at Iowa Speedway again. I know I have a great car and a great team!"

Butler was behind the wheel of the No. 22 for Eddie Sharp Racing last June at Iowa Speedway. Qualifying 13th, Butler took the checkered flag in the 22nd position. This season, KBIII returns as the sole driver of the No. 22 Toyota, a seat he shared last year with Michael Waltrip Racing's Josh Wise. The Prairie Meadows 250 marks the third event in Butler's first full season in the ARCA RE/MAX Series. Last weekend, Butler finished 20th in the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 at Salem Speedway.

"Last weekend was frustrating for everyone," commented Butler. "Our car was so much better that the finish we had. I'm just really looking forward to putting that behind us and focusing on qualifying better and finishing up front. We've raised the bar this year. Top-20 is not good enough. Top-10, top-5, that is where we should be."

Joining fellow ARCA RE/MAX Series Drivers, Ken Butler, III will be signing autographs at Prairie Meadows Racetrack/Casino on Friday, April 18, 2008 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
