Chad Finchum Plagued Again by Brake Issues

1Watkins Glen, New York (08/03/19) - Chad Finchum can't seem to catch a "brake" here lately. Literally.

For the third-straight event, the Tennessee racer was sidelined by brake issues on Saturday during the Zippo 200 with the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Watkins Glen International. Another promising run was derailed by a mechanical failure.

"I don't have a ton of roadcourse experience in my racing career, and I learned a lot in my debut last year at Watkins Glen," Finchum said. "We were making gains today before brake issues struck again and took us out of the race. We'll take what we learned here this weekend and try to build momentum with it next weekend on the roadcoarse at Mid Ohio."

Chad qualified 35th-fastest on Saturday at Watkins Glen International Raceway and during the first stage he advanced to the 30th position. Unfortunately, brake gremlins surfaced on his MBM Motorsports No. 13 Toyota Camry during the second stage.

As a result, Finchum was forced to retire on lap 30 of the 82-lap affair. He was credited with a 32nd-place finish.
