TRUCKS: Setzer Leads LASTCAR Truck Series Standings After Back-To-Back 36th-Place Finishes

SOURCE: Rubbin's Racin'
Dennis Setzer picked up the 5th last-place finish of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Saturday’s American Ethanol 200 presented by Hy-Vee at the Iowa Speedway when his unsponsored #38 RSS Racing Chevrolet fell out with overheating problems after completing 2 of the race’s 200 laps.

The finish was Setzer’s second in a row and his series-leading third of 2012. With seven races to go, Setzer now leads second-place Johnny Chapman by one finish.

Setzer qualified 29th at an average speed of 129.683 mph, ranking him seventh among the eleven "go-or-go-homers" who all made the 36-truck field.

LASTCAR STATISTICS
*Setzer is the first driver to score back-to-back Truck Series last-place finishes since last fall, when defending LASTCAR Truck Series champion Mike Garvey finished last at Martinsville and Texas. Garvey’s finishes also came with the Shane Sieg-owned team for whom Setzer now drives.
*This was the first last-place finish in a Truck Series race at Iowa for both Setzer and the #38.
