Chad Finchum Crosses the Stripe with a #NASCAR  #Xfinity Series Career-Best Finish

Chad Finchum was pumped to be heading to Daytona Beach in his MBM Motorsports #NASCAR Xfinity Series #40 Amana / CrashClaimsR.Us Toyota. The Firecracker 250 is his third plate race in the series. He earned a 28th place finish at Daytona in February.

“We have not been back to Daytona since February. I am really looking forward to it because in February we had such a good run going. Finchum recalled.  "However, as we got inside the top-ten, we had the left rear tire go down under green which cost us our day. I am stoked about getting back to Daytona – wide open; three, four wide racing, at two hundred miles an hour. Really looking forward to that"



Chad Finchum’s weekend started out great and he topped the field in final practice with the best speed of 185.567 mph. #NASCAR #NXS
Finchum’s weekend started out great as he topped the field in final practice with the best speed of 185.567 mph.

Unfortunately, wet weather dictated that Qualifying be cancelled and the #40 had to start the race from the rear,  thirty-fifth on the grid.

“What a race. We had a car that was a rocket ship. We were coming to the front; we were in the top-ten, then in the top-five and really running strong in the whole race. With about twelve to go, we were set up to actually win the race, but there was a wreck that happened, getting off in the corner and we suffered some damage and had to come down pit road. Unfortunately we ended up with a right tire rub. The tire went down under green, so we had to come down to replace that and it cost us some positions. We fought hard for our fourteenth (finishing position); that is eleven spots better than our personal best finish. We were really happy with the Amana Toyota – We could not have done it without them. We were also really pleased to have CrashClaimsR.Us on board with us this weekend. Awesome job everybody, the whole crew this Independence Day – P14!” – Chad Finchum.
