With just 7 rounds remaining in the 2020 Season the Retro Series presented by the DMLC Racing Channel heads to Iowa for the 4th time in as many seasons. This year will produce a guaranteed first-time winner as its previous winners have switched to full time competition in Lionheart’s IndyCar Series presented by First Medical Equipment.
The 172-lap event will be part of the league’s double header this week at the speedway. Dustin Wardlow coming off the big win at the Dewar’s 150 at New Hampshire would love nothing more than to make it two in a row and make his way back into the top 3 in the standings. Ryan Otis continues to stretch his lead over Sage Karam who has missed the last two events due to real world racing commitments. The Oregon native now boasts a 141 one-point lead over Karam after finishing on the podium at New Hampshire. Karam will need to rebound quickly scoring wins along with luck from the racing gods.
Otis however has not finished outside of the top 5 in nine of the eleven rounds so far this season. With the consistency Otis has shown the defending champion is looking like the favorite to secure this year’s championship title. There is a lot of racing yet to be done and if anything holds true in the Lionheart Racing Series Powered by HyperX is that every point counts. Alex Saunders lost the 2018 Season championship to Adam Blocker by a single point.
The series will also welcome two new drivers making their debut’s at Iowa Speedway. Matt Huston and Chris Tague who have made appearances in the Lionheart IndyCar Challenge Series have shown pace and are eager to make their mark on the series.
Jorge Anzaldo has shown some improvement over the last two events finishing in the top 10 twice coming off a solid run at New Hampshire gaining 12 positions in a race that proved difficult to make passes. Iowa is definitely a track that Anzaldo feels strongly at and is hoping for another strong run.
With so many talented drivers in the Retro Series presented by DMLC Racing Channel line up its anyone’s race to win. Who will take home the checkered flag in the Thumbs Up, Cancer Down Iowa 150?
