Chad Finchum Records 17th-Place Finish at Texas Motor Speedway

Justin, Texas (11/03/18) - On the heels of his best qualifying effort of the season, Chad Finchum raced his Smithbilt Homes/ MBM Motorsports/No. 40 Toyota Camry to a 17th-place finish on Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300.

"This was the first time that we've made it to round two of qualifying, and we were able to earn the 19th-starting spot for the race," Finchum noted. "We had a lot of speed when we came here back in the spring but just ran into some real bad luck. This time we were fast all weekend, and were able to come away with a great finish at the checkered flag. I thought we might have a chance at a Top-15, but on the long runs we were just a little off with the car. Overall though, it was phenomenal da,y and I'm really excited about the final two races of the season "

After qualifying 19th fastest for the 200-lap affair, Chad slipped a few spots during Stage 1 after being forced to start on the outside on multiple restarts. He ended the Stage in the 25th position on the lead lap.

By the end of Stage 2 Finchum was back up to the 23rd position and had regained a lost lap with a free pass. During the final stage Chad and his team put together a great run to advance to a 17th-place finish.
