"After a long hard-fought race we ended up finishing in the 33rd position. Bristol is one of those tracks that I always put a little bit more expectation on and always have very high standards, but we just came up short of our goals on this one," Finchum said. "We started in the 38th position and quickly advanced our way into the Top 30 and was looking to have a very positive day. Unfortunately, we ended up having some radio issues early in the race and had to come to pit road under green flag conditions, which cost us a ton of time trying to diagnose the issue. We lost several laps and it was just too much to overcome. I want to thank my team and sponsors for their support. My racing program wouldn't be possible without them, and we are looking forward to getting back on the track again soon!"

I haven't been driving full-time this year, so the opportunities to get behind the wheel have been limited, so the odds have been stocked against us.

I rode back around the sixth spot for a while before working my way up to fourth with 30-or-so laps to go. I got hung on the outside longer than I would've liked and the leaders got away. We finished seventh, but hopefully I can can get another opportunity to drive this car again.

"A very special thank you goes out to Jay and Cameron and everyone at Hedgecock Racing for busting their tail on this all week. Also, a big thanks to Bobby Hall for calling me and putting this deal together. Wish we could've won today, but if we get another chance soon, I know we will."

Unfortunately, due to a lack of funds we had to call it a day early, but I'm really proud of our team and what we achieved, and now we are looking forward to Martinsville in a few weeks."
