Grant Enfinger Race Recap:
Grant Enfinger, driver of the No. 98 Champion Power EquipmentToyota Tundra, made his track debut at Bristol Motor Speedway in Wednesday night's rain-delayed NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) UNOH 200. Starting seventh, under new guidance from crew chief Bud Haefele, the ThorSport Racing driver finished fifth in Stage 1, and ninth in Stage 2. Restarting the final 84-lap Stage from the seventh position, the ThorSport Racing driver muscled his way through traffic, running his fastest lap times of the race with 15 laps to go, and would cross the stripe in the fourth position behind race winner, Kyle Busch.
The solid run was Enfinger's sixth top-five finish of the 2017 season.
" We had a decent restart there at the end, and we really had a good Champion Power Equipment Tundra all day. We weren't great. The 46 (Kyle Busch) - he's really good at this racing stuff. He made us all look bad. But a solid run for us. We'll take it. We need a little bit more, but very, very proud of everybody on this ThorSport Racing team. We had to battle through some adversity this week, but we still got some more to come, so we'll keep fighting strong."
The NCWTS had two practice sessions on Wednesday morning in preparation for Wednesday night's UNOH 200 at BMS. Grant Enfinger was 11th, and seventh-quick, respectively, in each session.
In his track debut at BMS, Enfinger started seventh, finished fifth in Stage 1, ninth in Stage 2, and fourth in the UNOH 200.
In 14 starts in 2017, the ThorSport Racing driver has led 23 laps en route to six top-five, and nine top-10 finishes.
In 28 career NCWTS starts, Enfinger has one pole, one win, and has led 73 laps en route to eight top-five, and 14 top-10 finishes.
Enfinger's ThorSport Racing teammates finished second (Crafton), fifth (Rhodes), and 17th (Coughlin).
Up Next: The NCWTS 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on Sunday, September 3 at 2:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
