Chad Finley; Hoping For Better Luck In JEGS/CRA Competition; Race #3 At Illiana Motor Speedway
DeWitt, Michigan (Thursday, May 17th, 2012): The next race on the 2012 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts schedule is at the big ½ (0.500) mile high-banked paved oval of Illiana Motor Speedway, located southeast of Chicago, Illinois in Schererville, Indiana for the Lisa Thomas Salon 100 Presented by JEGS.com and Chad Finley is looking for a solid finish in the third JEGS/CRA race of the year.
In Finley’s only other appearance at the Chicagoland oval back in July 2011 in JEGS/CRA, he finished 10th and after the first two events of the 2012 JEGS/CRA season, Finley finds himself in unfamiliar territory in 12th in the season long points chase after two of the 14 scheduled JEGS/CRA events of the Salem, Indiana based series.
“It’s definitely time to turn our luck around. We ran very well there last year until a late race incident.” The DeWitt, Michigan driver remarked. “Our cars have been very fast the last few races. We just have not had an ounce of luck. If we can get over the hump here we will be fine. The guys are working very hard building these cars and we need to reward their efforts. We will just keep digging and see where we are at by the end of the day.” He added.

It is great to have them come on board.” He ended.
