Suspension Woes Slow Chad Finchum at the Monster Mile

Dover, Delaware (10/06/18) - Chad Finchum found a promising outing in the Bar Harbor 200 at Dover International Speedway interrupted by a suspension failure early in the 200-lap affair.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series rolled into the Monster Mile, where he qualified 26th fastest in qualifying. His hopes for a career outing in his Smithbilt Homes/ MBM Motorsports/No. 40 Toyota Camry went south from there.

"The MBM Motorsports organization provided one fast race car, and we had our second-best qualifying effort of the year with the 26th-starting position," Finchum said. "We were up in the Top 20 and just before the end of Stage 1 I radioed the crew and told them something was wrong. We entered the next corner and had a shock break. It took us a while to find the parts we needed to make the repairs, and then we had more damage than we thought.

"We went back out, but the car still had suspension issues so we called it a day. We'll head into the next event at Kansas and look to have better luck".

Chad was credited with a 34th-place finish in the final rundown
