May 4, 2019 - Finchum Battles Challenges to 30th-Place Finish at the Monster Mile
1Dover, Delaware (05/04/19) - Chad Finchum battled past track-bar issues and an untimely caution to finish 30th at Dover International Speedway in his Garrison Homes No. 42 MBM Motorsports/ Smithbilt Homes Toyota.

"This mile is definitely a monster, and he's definitely tough to tame," Finchum said. "The Garrison Homes Toyota was awesome today, but we had a track bar break late in the race and then changed everything.

" I think we had a 22nd-place car or so before we broke the part, but that's just how it goes sometimes. We'll take these next two off weeks and prepare for Charlotte, where we'll be back in the Toyota Supra."

Chad qualified 27th on the grid for the Allied Steel Buildings 200 at the tricky, one-mile confines of Dover International Speedway. At the end of the first stage he resided in the 24th position. >>READ MORE

April 26, 2019 - Mechanical Gremlins Strike Again; Sideline Finchum Early at 'Dega
1 Talladega, Alabama (04/26/19) - Chad Finchum was in new digs for Saturday's MoneyLion 300 at Talladega Superspeedway. He was behind the wheel of the Crash Claims R Us No. 13 MBM Motorsports/ James Carter Attorney at Law Toyota Supra. With a new look for the event at the 2.5-mile oval, Chad was hoping he would find better luck than he had a week earlier at Richmond.

As fate would have it, mechanical gremlins would again strike, ending Finchum's day early.

"We didn't have the day that we planned. Our car was pretty good and we were drafting up through the field early with our teammate, Max Tullman. Then, it all went south when we had a mechanical failure just before the end of the first round that sent us behind the wall, ending our day," Finchum recounted. "Next week I'll be back in the No. 42 at Dover, and I'm really looking forward to that. We'll see what we can do there and look for better luck."

Finchum was credited with a 36th-place finish after seeing his day come to an end on lap 36.

April 13, 2019 - Chad Finchum KO'd By Mechanical Failure at Richmond
1Richmond, Virginia (04/15/19) - With momentum in his corner, Chad Finchum was eager to get to Richmond International Raceway for the weekend's NASCAR Xfinity Series event. Unfortunately, luck would not be in the corner of the driver of the MBM Motorsports No. 40 Smithbilt Homes Toyota Supra. The culprit was a master cylinder failure that ended his day before the end of Stage 2.

"This MBM Motorsports Toyota Supra has been running just great the past few weeks, and we really thought we had a chance for a great run at Richmond, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be," Finchum said. "We were just outside the Top 20 at the end of Stage 1, and then we were running real good in Stage 2, when we lost the master cylinder. It's disappointing, but we won't let it get us down, and we'll focus on the next one.

"Thanks so much to each and every person, who supports our program."

Chad qualified 25th on the grid for Saturday's Toyota Care 250. By the end of Stage 1, he sat on the lead lap in the 21st position. Before the end of Stage 2, brake problems forced the team to take their No. 40 behind the wall. It was discovered that there was a master cylinder failure, forcing the team to retire to a 34th-place finish.

April 6, 2019 - Chad Finchum Races to Top-20 Performance in NASCAR Xfinity Series "Home Game"
1Bristol, Tennessee (04/06/19) - There's not a track on the NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule that is closer to home for Chad Finchum than Bristol Motor Speedway. In fact, it's the track that Finchum considers to be a home game.

On Saturday afternoon he capitalized on racing in familiary territory to take his Amana Brand Heating & Air Conditiong MBM Motorsports/ Kingsport Speedway No. 40 Smithbilt Homes Toyota Supra to a 20th-place.

"We were so fast in qualifying, and ended up 18th, which is our best qualifying effort of the season. I thought at one point we might be as high as 14th or so but we just missed it barely," Finchum said. "In the race we were good the whole day, and I thought we were going to end up with a Top-15 finish. I'm not disappointed with this finish by any means, but the flat tire late definitely cost us some spots. I couldn't be more proud to have such a great run with this great team at my home track." >>READ MORE

"We were having the best run of the season by far, so it was definitely a disappointing way to end the day," Finchum recounted. "This team has gotten better and better every week. We were running great right before the end of the stage, and I started getting a vibration. We thought maybe a tire was coming apart, but when we got to pit road, axle grease was pouring out, ending our day. Despite the bad luck, I want to say a huge thanks for the hard work of every member of this team. Their efforts mean the world to me."

1Atlanta, Tennessee (02/23/19) - Chad Finchum kicked off his 2019 season over the weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway in his Amana Brand Heating & Air Conditiong MBM Motorsports No. 40 Smithbilt Homes/ Toyota Supra.

Qualifying rained out at the 1.5-mile oval and as a result the lineups for the Rinnai 250 were determined by NASCAR Xfinity Series rules. This initially positioned Finchum second on the starting grid.

However, out of respect for his other competitors, Chad elected to start on the tail of the field.

Stage 1 found Finchum advancing to the 26th position, and by the end of Stage 2 he was 24th. During the final stage Chad looked to advance further in the field before a late-race pit sequence shuffled him back to a 26th-place finish.

"We were pretty pleased for our first race of the year, and I thought we did pretty good," Finchum said. "I think we could've finished a little better, but we got beat on pit strategy with about three to go. We'll take the finish nd head onto Las Vegas."
