Stenhouse goes for 4th straight Iowa Speedway win

Michael Annett, sixth in the standings, said no one doubts Stenhouse can win again Saturday.

Ricky knows that when he unloads at Iowa Speedway that he’s the one to beat right now, and confidence can mean more than anything _ more than making the right spring change or making the right sway-bar change,” Annett said. “If you know everyone there is trying to beat you, and that’s who they’re focused on, that gives you the little extra bit and sometimes that means more than anything.”

Stenhouse comes in off five straight top-10 finishes, but he hasn’t won since the May race here. He was ninth in Indianapolis last week.

Saturday’s race also marks the end of the Nationwide Series‘ “Dash4Cash” bonus program, and this time a lucky fan will get a piece of the action.

Stenhouse, Dillon, Annett and Sam Hornish Jr. are the drivers eligible for the additional $100,000.

As in years past, the four drivers each will be paired with a fan for the last leg of the “Dash4Cash.” In addition to the highest-placing eligible driver receiving a $100,000 bonus, the fan paired with that driver also gets $100,000.

Drivers became eligible for the “Dash4Cash” if they were among the top four point earners last week. A drawing will determine the fans who’ll be paired with the drivers.

“Putting that fan in there puts pressure on us,” Stenhouse said, “because you want to do it for them as well.”
