Chad Finchum KO'd By Mechanical Failure at Richmond

1Richmond, Virginia (04/13/19) - Richmond, Virginia (04/15/19) - With momentum in his corner, Chad Finchum was eager to get to Richmond International Raceway for the weekend's NASCAR Xfinity Series event. Unfortunately, luck would not be in the corner of the driver of the MBM Motorsports No. 40 Smithbilt Homes Toyota Supra. The culprit was a master cylinder failure that ended his day before the end of Stage 2.

"This MBM Motorsports Toyota Supra has been running just great the past few weeks, and we really thought we had a chance for a great run at Richmond, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be," Finchum said. "We were just outside the Top 20 at the end of Stage 1, and then we were running real good in Stage 2, when we lost the master cylinder. It's disappointing, but we won't let it get us down, and we'll focus on the next one.

"Thanks so much to each and every person, who supports our program."

Chad qualified 25th on the grid for Saturday's Toyota Care 250. By the end of Stage 1, he sat on the lead lap in the 21st position. Before the end of Stage 2, brake problems forced the team to take their No. 40 behind the wall. It was discovered that there was a master cylinder failure, forcing the team to retire to a 34th-place finish.
