February 17, 2018 - Chad Finchum Starts Season Fast at Daytona
1Chad Finchum achieved a life-long dream on Saturday by entering his first-ever event at the famed Daytona International Speedway (Daytona Beach, Florida).

Finchum competed with the NASCAR Xfinity Series in the PowerShares QQQ 300 behind the wheel of the SmithBilt Homes No. 40 MB Motorsports Toyota.

The team began the weekend behind the eight ball as they battled mechanical issues throughout practice and qualifying, which resulted in Finchum starting 36th on the grid at the 2.5-mile oval.

As the race went green Chad quickly realized that he had a great car under him, and he would drive to the outskirts of the Top 10 before a flat tire, under green flag conditions, forced him pitside.

After losing two laps to change the tire, Finchum battled tooth and nail the rest of the day but was unable to make up his laps. He would go on to record a 26th-place finish.

"All in all, it was a great first-time experience at Daytona International Speedway," Finchum said. "I'm looking forward to next week at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Thanks to MBM Motorsports and the crew for working so hard throughout the weekend. Also, a special thanks goes out to SmithBilt Homes and all of my sponsors for helping to make this special weekend possible."

October 7, 2017 - Chad Finchum Competes at Charlotte Motor Speedway
1Charlotte Motor Speedway was the destination for Chad Finchum and the MBM Motorsports on Saturday. The team entered the Drive For The Cure 300 with the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Rain plagued the event. In fact qualifying was rained out, so the the starting grid was determined by points.

As a result Chad started 34th on the grid. Another long rain delay forced the event start time to be pushed back. When the 200 lapper finally went green Finchum immediately began marching forward in the field in his Buddy Gregg RV #40 MBM Motorsports/ Sticky Fingers Chevrolet Camaro.

Early in the event Chad found his way into the Top 25. Unfortunately the bad luck bug found the #40 around the race's midway point. A mechanical failure made the car a handful for the final half of the event, but the team didn't give up. Finchum crossed the finish line in 29th.

"We had a really fast car this weekend, and even though we had the mechanical failure we dug in deep and came away with a strong finish," Finchum said. "I want to thank MBM Motorsports bringing me a great hot rod to the track this weekend. For my first time there I can't complain. I also want to thank Buddy Gregg RV and Sticky Fingers for being a part of the team again again this weekend.

"Last, but not least least thanks to all of the fans, who waited out the rain delay with us and stayed to watch and support the race!"
