March 9, 2019 - Chad Finchum Charges to 19th-Place Finish at ISM Raceway

1Phoenix, Arizona (03/09/19) - The 2019 season continued over the weekend for Chad Finchum as he took his Amana Brand Heating & Air Conditiong MBM Motorsports/ Superstition Springs Lexus No. 40 Smithbilt Home Toyota Supra into battle at ISM Raceway.

For the first time in 2019 qualifying didn't keep Chad from getting his shot at qualifying. He powered to the 20th-fastest lap, and that's where he started on the grid for the IK9 Service Dog 200.

Finchum ended the first stage in the 23rd position on the lead lap. Throughout the second stage he and the team worked diligently to find the handle on their entry. He ended the stage in 24th, one lap down. To make up his lap he stayed on the track during the caution period. He was successful in reclaiming his lap, but the downside was that he was forced to stay on the track with old tires.

The third stage proved to be exceptional for Finchum and his team as he charged to a season-best finish of 19th.

"Each week we are getting better and better, and our finishes are showing it," Finchum said. "We didn't even get out the first practice, and then we worked hard on the handle the second practice. To start the weekend with a great qualifying effort set the tone, and we were able to carry the momentum into the race. It was really cool having Superstition Springs Lexus on board with us, and I'm pumped to give them a strong showing in their first-ever NASCAR Xfinity Series race."
