Ryan Preece only had about two days to celebrate his first Xfinity Series win before he went back to his day job.
Preece was a guest on NASCAR America to discuss what his life has been like since winning last Saturday at Iowa Speedway with Joe Gibbs Racing.
After two days in Charlotte, the 26-year-old driver was back in his home state of Connecticut preparing his modified car for a Friday night race. Preece dedicated his Xfinity win last weekend to his fellow short-track racers.
“This is really one for everybody in the short track racing community, they aspire to be at this level but they might not get a chance,” Preece said. “Guess what? Work hard, keep trying to win races and your dream might come true.”
Preece also shared where the checkered flag from Iowa wound up before hearing what Dale Earnhardt Jr. had to say about his victory.
Preece’s win came in a race where there where no full-time Cup drivers. Below, Preece shares his thoughts on NASCAR’s new limits on Cup drivers competing in the Xfinity and Truck Series.
