AVONDALE, Ariz. – Quin Houff finished 29th in Saturday’s Whelen 200 Xfinity Series race at ISM Raceway as the NASCAR season approaches its end. 

Driving the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller No. 15 Chevrolet, Houff, still very much a newcomer to the series, started 29th and finished in the same spot. 

“Another solid weekend in the books with the JD Motorsports team,” he said. “I learned lots at Phoenix and felt I maximized the opportunity. I wish the strategy could have worked our way some more so we could have come away with a better finish, but finishing where you started without any damage is never a bad day.  

“I am excited to go to Homestead and end the season with another solid finish.” 

The Xfinity schedule will conclude Nov. 17 with a race at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida. 

Christopher Bell won Saturday’s race and will be among four drivers seeking the Xfinity championship at Homestead. He’ll compete with Cole Custer, Daniel Hemric and Tyler Reddick.
