July 19, 2017 - Finchum Excited to Compete at 'The Brickyard' in NASCAR Xfinity Series with MBM Motorsports
1 To say that Chad Finchum of Knoxville, Tenn., is excited having the opportunity to compete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday, July 22 would be an understatement. The 22-year-old Finchum will be making his third NASCAR Xfinity Series start of the 2017 racing season for MBM Motorsports driving the Amana Heating & Cooling - America's Brand For Comfort No. 40 Dodge Challenger.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway officially opened in 1909 and the "Yard of Bricks" at the historic 2.5-mile facility is some of the most hallowed ground in worldwide motorsports. NASCAR racing made its first appearance at the Brickyard in 1994.

Finchum captured the 2013 Tennessee NASCAR Whelen All-American Series state championship, and competing for Martin-McClure Racing in 2016 he won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series Pitt Lite 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway. But racing at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be on the biggest stage yet in his career.

"I'm not sure quite yet that it's truly registered with me that come this weekend I'll be racing at such a historic place as Indianapolis Motor Speedway," said Finchum earlier this afternoon while taking a break helping the team at MBM Motorsports in Statesville, N.C., prepare to make the haul to Indiana for running of the Lilly Diabetes 250. "Like any other motorsports fan I've watched many Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 races on television, and now getting to race at Indy is going to be a very special deal. I'm just really looking forward to the experience. I know I'll be wide-eyed the first time leaving the garage area and rolling down pit road and out onto the track, just glancing around taking a look at the facility and thinking about Indy Car, Formula One and NASCAR races over the years. >>READ MORE


July 8, 2017 - Finchum Enjoys Strong Run in NASCAR XFINITY Action
1Chad Finchum returned to the driver's seat of the Overstock Mercantile #40 MBM Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro over the weekend as he entered his second-career NASCAR XFINITY Series event.

The Alsco 300 was held at Kentucky Speedway (Sparta, Kentucky). Finchum enjoyed strong performances in practice and had high hopes for qualifying.

Unfortunately he would all manage the 38th fastest time and that's where he would start on the grid for the 200-lap affair at the 1.5-mile oval.

The race was originally slated for Friday evening, but Mother Nature had other ideas and pushed the program to Saturday at noon.

Chad would run strong early in the event as he continued to gain valuable seat time. It seemed like he would have a great car for late in the event, but engine troubles struck during the last segment. As a result he would slip to a 29th-place finish.

"The engine problems were disappointing but all-in-all we had a great outing and it was an awesome experience," Finchum said. "I can't thank Carl Long and the whole MBM Motorsports team for the hard work and efforts that they put into this car this weekend.

"Last but not least it really meant a lot to me to have so many friends, family and fans drive all the way from Knoxville to watch me race. We will be making an announcement very soon about more races!"
