No. 91 Jeremy Moen notched one win, a second- and a third-place finish in American Iron at Gingerman Raceway in June.

In American Iron qualifying on Saturday, TJ Bain in his white Firebird was on pole. Followed by Jeremy Moen in second in his orange Camaro, Todd Davis in third in his black Buick Grand National and Travis Davis fourth in his orange FR500C Mustang.

In Spec Iron, Steve Wilson ran uncontested.

TJ Bain got a good start and built up a lead after a few laps. A long double-yellow after the halfway point of the race bunched up the field, and TJ Bain lost much of his lead. The field slowed, the pace car pulled off track and everyone anticipated the green flag. Todd Davis, who was on the back straight, got the call on the radio that the green was out and moved past Jeremy Moen and TJ Bain. But, the double yellows were still up at Turn 11.

Davis got to checkers first, but he was disqualified for passing under double-yellow. This gave the win to TJ Bain, with Moen in second and Travis Davis in third.

On Sunday, Bain was on pole and the rest of the AI field was very close on lap times. Rain was coming in from Lake Michigan at the start of race two, but remained light until the last lap of the 25-minute race. Dry tires proved to be the optimal choice and Jeremy Moen got the win. TJ Bain finished second and Todd Davis took third. Bain and Todd Davis had a noticeable loose condition with overheated rear tires. Travis Davis had a braking issue into Turn 10B that caused a heavy impact into the back of a GTS car at the apex of the Turn 10B. This put both cars back into the swampy high grass. Both drivers were OK, but the cars where seriously damaged.

The track had dried before the third race, but it had gotten hot and muggy outside with some sunshine. Bain and Moen fought for the lead until Turn 11, where Moen went too deep under braking and got caught on the pit-in road. Todd Davis then grabbed second. Moen got back on track, put his head down, kept turning good laps and was catching Davis. In the end, Moen was 1.6 seconds back from Davis, but he did end up setting the fast lap time of the race with a 1:41.376. Davis held on for second and Bain got the win.
