GAFFNEY, S.C. (June 11, 2018) – Ross Chastain, driving the No. 4 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro, came home with a top-15 finish for team JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in the rain-shortened LTi Printing 250 at Michigan International Speedway.
With NASCAR Xfinity Series qualifying cancelled because of rain, Chastain started the race in 16th place. The No. 4 Flex Seal Chevy was fast all day, and Chastain finished stage two of the race in 6th place. The rain set in again and ended the race on lap 91 with Chastain in 14th place.
“This was a very productive day for the No. 4 Flex Seal team,” said Chastain. “The guys made a good bit of adjustments on the first pit stop and made really good headway on the mechanical grip. They made it so that I could carry a lot more throttle, and that really paid off later in the race and helped me get some stage points. We were really hoping that the rain would hold off a little while longer. We pitted at the end of stage two for fuel so that we could go awhile longer than some other cars, but there were a couple more cautions before the end that let everyone else stop for fuel too. But, all in all, we gained points on the guys that we needed to and got a good finish for Flex Seal and Hungry Howie’s Pizza.”
Next up for the NASCAR Xfinity Series is the Iowa 250 presented by Enogen at Iowa Speedway on June 17th, 2018.
