SPARTA, Ky. – The race was a day late, but Ross Chastain was right on time.
Chastain ran with the front pack and finished on the lead lap in 20th place in Saturday’s Alsco 300 Xfinity Series race at Kentucky Speedway. The race was delayed a day because of rain.
“We had a good car and kept up with the front part of the field,” Chastain said. “It helped that I’ve run a lot of races (nine) at this track. It’s tough and fast.”
Chastain, who raced in the AE Door and Window Chevrolet Saturday, has scored four straight top-20 finishes.
Kyle Busch won the race, and Elliott Sadler kept the point lead.
The series moves on to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for a July 15 race.
