Chad Finchum Kicks Off 2019 at Atlanta Motor Speedway

1Atlanta, Tennessee (02/23/19) - Chad Finchum kicked off his 2019 season over the weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway in his Amana Brand Heating & Air Conditiong MBM Motorsports No. 40 Smithbilt Homes/ Toyota Supra.

Qualifying rained out at the 1.5-mile oval and as a result the lineups for the Rinnai 250 were determined by NASCAR Xfinity Series rules. This initially positioned Finchum second on the starting grid.

However, out of respect for his other competitors, Chad elected to start on the tail of the field.

Stage 1 found Finchum advancing to the 26th position, and by the end of Stage 2 he was 24th. During the final stage Chad looked to advance further in the field before a late-race pit sequence shuffled him back to a 26th-place finish.

"We were pretty pleased for our first race of the year, and I thought we did pretty good," Finchum said. "I think we could've finished a little better, but we got beat on pit strategy with about three to go. We'll take the finish nd head onto Las Vegas."
