In a very challenging weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Vinnie Miller finished 28th place in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco 300.
Miller was not able to complete any practice laps after a blown tire sent him into the wall, the No. 01 JAS Expedited Trucking team unloaded a backup Chevrolet Camaro. Miller’s struggles continued after a mechanical issue caused him to spin on lap 109 of the race. However, the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller pit crew was able to repair the damage and keep Miller on track. Miller drove a smart race and was able to rebound to a 28th place finish.
“I can’t thank these JD Motorsports team guys enough for busting their tails after a tire blew in practice forcing us to a backup car,” said Miller. “To go out and have my first laps on the track be in qualifying and come back to have a 28th place finish is a true testament to their dedication. I really like Charlotte Motor Speedway and can’t wait to race the roval in the fall. A huge thank you to JAS Expedited Trucking for their support and sponsorship. I’m looking forward to Pocono next week.”
Next up for the NASCAR Xfinity Series is the Pocono Green 250 at Pocono Raceway on June 2nd, 2018.
