Hefty®/Reynolds® Racing NOTES
25th in Owners’ Standings…Over-heating issues plagued Eric McClure and the Hefty®/Reynolds® team last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, relegating them to a 31st-place finish. As a result, the team slipped two spots to 25th in the NASCAR Owner Standings.
Iowa Fast Facts…This weekend’s US Cellular 250 will mark McClure’s 219th-career NASCAR Nationwide Series start and his sixth at the 7/8-mile tri-oval.
