Mark Setzer Quotes: “As race weekend fast approaches for Iowa, I couldn’t be happier with the amount of work our Precision Performance Motorsports guys have put in over the past weeks. These guys have put together a great car for Quin Houff to pilot this weekend in his Iowa debut. After his great run at Richmond, and a Bristol run that people are still talking about, I have a lot of confidence heading into Iowa that Quin will continue to learn these Xfinity series cars and new tracks quickly and have the opportunity to show the racing world that he will be one of the next names in NASCAR. Thanks to our owners Rick and Kelly Gdovic for equipping us with everything we need to continue to build great cars.”
No. 46 Chevrolet Camaro… Crew Chief Mark Setzer and the No. 46 crew will unload chassis No. 008 for Saturday’s American Ethanol E15 250 at Iowa Speedway. This car was last raced by Quin Houff at Bristol in April where he finished 15th.
Houff at Iowa… The Ethanol E15 250 weekend will be the first time that Quin Houff will turn laps at Iowa Speedway.

Quin Houff Quotes: “I’m really excited about racing in Iowa. I have been itching to get back in a racecar and it’s a blessing for it to be in the NASCAR Xfinity Series again. Just like last time, this will be two new experiences for me. I have never been on the intermediate size tracks so I’m looking forward to working with the Precision Performance Motorsports guys and learning as much as I can about them. The hardest part for me, I believe, is going to be getting used to the aerodynamics and how it affects the cars when racing at these size tracks. Daytona was one thing when I ran it in the ARCA car, but everyone says it’s another deal at these tracks. The only easier part for me, I believe, will be letting the car do more work down the straightaways. Because these are bigger tracks, the car can do more work than the two short tracks I raced. I’ve been west of the Mississippi River before, but it’s been a long time, so I’m looking forward to the travel and going new places as well.”
Team Owner Richard Gdovic Quotes: “We are happy to have Quin on board for Iowa. He and the team did a great job at Bristol and Richmond. We expect another solid performance at Iowa. I can’t say enough about the effort our team has put together at each race helping young talent reach their potential and finally getting a shot to compete in top quality equipment with a team that understands and cares about building their brand and future in the sport.”
