MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 26, 2017) – Harrison Burton and Vinnie Miller will pilot MDM Motorsports entries this weekend at the 7/8-mile Iowa Speedway in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series combination race. Once a season, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) and NASCAR K&N Pro Series West (NKNPSW) come together for the biggest series event of the season. MDM Motorsports has dominated the NKNPSE with six victories in eight races. 16-year-old Burton has tallied four of those wins.
Iowa Speedway, located in Newton, Iowa, is one of NASCAR’s newest tracks. It was designed by NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace. The track hosts many different forms of motorsports including the Verizon IndyCar Series, NASCAR XFINITY Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Saturday’s Casey’s General Store 150 will be the ninth race of a 14-race schedule for the NKNPSE. Burton currently holds a 14-point lead over second-place.

He holds the NKNPSE points lead by 14 markers as the series heads into the homestretch of the season. Burton made his ARCA Racing Series debut at Iowa Speedway last July and finished third. He also finished third in last year’s NKNPS event at the speedway.
Burton on Iowa: “Iowa is one of those race tracks that I think everyone loves. It is wide and provides multiple grooves to race. As a driver, that is a lot of fun. I think we have a car that can run up front this weekend. We’ve had a really good season thus far, and we just need to keep up the good work because there is still a lot of season left. I’m excited to get on track Friday.”
The NKNPS Casey’s General Store 150 at Iowa Speedway will air on NBCSN Aug. 3 at 7 p.m., ET.
