19-year-old Chad Finley Hopes his First Appearance at Illiana Results in a Good Finish
DeWitt, Michigan (Tuesday, May 10th, 2011): With some down time to reflect on his first race with the new JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts; The VR-12 Easter Bunny 100 Presented by JEGS.com at Toledo Speedway in Toledo, Ohio back on April 23rd, 19-year-old Chad Finley knows that with more seat time and more bonding with his new Crew Chief, Jimmy D. Smith, a win is not too far off in the distant future.
“Looking forward to getting back in the JEGS/CRA car. With what we learned in our down time, I feel like we will have an awesome race car for Illiana,” Stated the 19-year-old. “The guys been working really hard on this car and to get Chad Finley Racing (CFR) where we need to be. I have been told Illiana is a flat race track with very low grip. I like those kinds of tracks so hopefully all the stars align for us that night. We will see. If not it won’t be from lack of effort that’s for sure.” He added.
The next race on the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts schedule for Finley and his CFR Team will be on Saturday, May 14th in the running of the Illiana 100 Presented by JEGS.com at the ½ (0.500) mile semi-banked paved oval of Illiana Motor Speedway in Schererville, Indiana in the heart of the Chicagoland region of the country.
“We had a good run for our first time out with a brand new car with no previous testing or anything. We got the car late and we had lots of obstacles to overcome just to make it to Toledo,” Explained the DeWitt, Michigan native. “I’m very proud of all the guys at CFR. Jimmy D., did an awesome job with the set up. We were close in the last practice and I really thought we had a top five car and the way things ended maybe a top three car.”
In addition to the 2011 JEGS/CRA/GM schedule, Finley will make his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut with Team Rensi Motorsports on Saturday, June 18th at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. In the meantime, Finley and his team will place their efforts and resources into running the Inaugural JEGS/CRA/GM Series for the Salem, Indiana based series and stay sharp behind the wheel while awaiting his Nationwide races.
