FORT WORTH, Texas – Saturday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 Xfinity Series race became an obstacle course.
The race saw a record number of cautions – 13, making the Texas Motor Speedway course treacherous.
Ross Chastain threaded his way through the trouble and finished 11th, one of his best runs in what has been his best season.
“A great day for the team,” Chastain said. “It got crazy out there at times, but we held steady and kept pushing, stayed with the lead group and got a great finish. On to Phoenix.”
The run kept Chastain in ninth in the Xfinity standings.
Cole Custer won the 300 as the series playoffs continue.
The series will race at ISM Raceway in Phoenix Nov. 10.
