Chad Finchum Dodges Carnage to Finish 25th in Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada (09/15/18) - Chad Finchum's rookie campaign with the NASCAR Xfinity Series took him to Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the weekend, where he was once again behind the wheel of his Smithbilt Homes/ MBM Motorsports/No. 40 Toyota Camry.

The team overcame transmission issues - which caused Fincum to miss the first practice session - to qualify 29th fastest in the 40-car field for the DC Solar 300.

The event would see multiple incidents, but Finchum would be able to keep his nose clean thorughout the event. Despite an engine issue, he raced his way to a 25th-place finish.

"We've been looking forward to coming back to Vegas since we showed speed here earlier this year," Finchum said. "I don't think place typically carries this many wrecks, but it was kind of wild out there today. Our engine wasn't exactly where we wanted it to be, but we were able to dodge the accidents and come home unscathed with a 25th-place finish. We'll now look forward to heading to Richmond next week."
