Chad Finchum Enjoys Stellar Outing at Daytona International Speedway

Daytona Beach, Florida (07/06/18) - Chad Finchum had a stellar outing during the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 on Friday evening at Daytona International Speedway.

The Tennessee racer contended for a win in the NASCAR Xfnity Series event at the famed 2.5-mile oval before ultimately recording a 14th-place finish.

"Man what a race. We had an absolute rocket ship. We raced into the Top 10 and then we raced into the Top 5, and honestly we were in a position to win the race there late," Finchum said. "With about 12 to go we were setup to wn the race, but then we got collected in a wreck that caused a tire rub and ultimately cut a tire down. We came to the pits, but still got a 14th-place finish, which was 11 spots better than our previous best finish.

"I just can't thank everyone enough who supports this Amana Brand Heating & Air Conditioning/MBM Motorsports Toyota."

Finchum started the weekend fast in both practice sessions. In fact, he was fastest in the final practice session. The team had high hopes for qualifying, but unfortunately Mother Nature would wash it out.

As a result he started 35th on the green for the event, which was scheduled to be 105 laps.

Finchum bided his time as he slowly worked his way through the fi,eld. Late in the race he reached as high as the Top 5, before getting a flat tire after being collected in an accident. A quick trip to the pits found Finchum with a fresh tire.

He rejoined the pack in the event that was extended to 105 laps by caution flags before advancing back to a career-best 14th-place finish.
