TRUCKS: Garvey Extends 2010 Lead After Brake Failure At Iowa
Mike Garvey picked up the 4th last-place finish of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Sunday’s Lucas Oil 200 Presented By Speed at Iowa Speedway when his #93 S&W Towing Chevrolet fell out with brake problems 5 laps into the 205-lap event.
Garvey qualified 30th for the race at a speed of 127.541 mph, eighth-best of the twelve drivers not locked-into the field based on Owner Points. Chris Lafferty’s #89, still ranked 2nd in the Team Rankings, was the only truck that failed to qualify.
