Broken Axle Sidelines Finchum at Auto Club Speedway

1Fontana, California (03/16/19) - Chad Finchum was enjoying his best run of the 2019 season before bad luck struck on Saturday. A broken axle sidelined Finchum on lap 39 of the NASCAR Xfinifty Series event at Auto Club Speedway.

"We were having the best run of the season by far, so it was definitely a disappointing way to end the day," Finchum recounted. "This team has gotten better and better every week. We were running great right before the end of the stage, and I started getting a vibration. We thought maybe a tire was coming apart, but when we got to pit road, axle grease was pouring out, ending our day. Despite the bad luck, I want to say a huge thanks for the hard work of every member of this team. Their efforts mean the world to me."

Finchum qualified 24th fastest on the starting grid for the Production Alliance 300 in his Amana Brand Heating & Air Conditiong MBM Motorsports/ Superstition Springs Lexus No. 40 Smithbilt Homes Toyota Supra. The mechanical failure on lap 39 relegated him to a 32nd-place finish.
