Steve Arpin No. 88 Realtree Outfitters Chevrolet

"It's really special to be able to drive the Realtree Outfitters Chevrolet for Bill Jordan, the folks at Delta Apparel, and everyone at JR Motorsports this weekend. I know all the guys at JRM are thrilled to have the Realtree Outfitters brand on the No. 88 again, and we're pumped for the race at Iowa. Both Realtree and Bill Jordan have a long history in NASCAR and with the Earnhardt family and we want to do them proud.

"Iowa is a track I raced on in ARCA (Automobile Racing Club of America), but driving the Nationwide car there will be a new experience for me. I will tell you it's a state-of-the-art facility. The folks up there should be really proud of what they built. It's an awesome place. As the defending race winners, this Realtree Outfitters team will have some pressure on us. We're definitely up to the challenge though, and look forward to a chance at getting the Realtree Outfitters Chevrolet its first win of the season."

"I'm excited to have another short track race on the schedule this weekend. I think this GoDaddy.com/HowDoYou.com team learned a couple things about our short track program last week that we can take with us and build on for Iowa. This will be my first trip out there, so I've been busy this week watching past race footage and using my racing simulator to get adapted.

"The month of July has been busy for everyone at JRM. Driving in three consecutive races this month has meant a lot to me. The GoDaddy.com/HowDoYou.com team has really jelled over the past few weeks. I'm at the shop a lot, and I see all the effort Tony [Eury] Jr. and all the guys put in these race cars. I think anything short of a top 10 this week will be disappointing for everyone. We know what this team can do and where we need to be running. Hopefully all goes well this weekend, and we grab another deserving finish for this No. 7 team."

THIRD DASH-FOR-CASH RACE - Dash 4 Cash, a bonus program created to develop and support NASCAR Nationwide Series regulars and up-and-comers, will see drivers battle it out for a $25,000 bonus in the third of four such races this weekend at Iowa. Eligible drivers also are competing for a year-end $75,000 bonus. Brad Keselowski swept the 2009 Dash 4 Cash program driving the No. 88 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports. The final Dash-For-Cash event will come on Nov. 6 at Texas Motor Speedway.

TEAM POINTS POSITION - The No. 88 Realtree Outfitters team are ranked eighth in the 2010 owner points after ORP. The No. 7 GoDaddy.com/HowDoYou.com team occupies the 21st spot in owner points.
