TIM GEORGE JR.:

The ARCA Racing Series has had several down weeks since the last race. How have you spent your time?

"I've stayed busy racing during these last few off-weekends. I made my NASCAR Nationwide Series debut for Richard Childress Racing at Road America and I've been in a late model and dirt car since my last ARCA start."

What are your thoughts on Iowa Speedway?

"Iowa was a challenge for me last year, but I have a lot more confidence going into this race now. It will be great to have Ty Dillon as my teammate in ARCA, and working with my RCR guys again will be fun. I'm doing several appearances, so I'm also looking forward to a busy weekend."
