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."
