(CONCORD, N.C. - July 30, 2012) - Grant Enfinger came to Lucas Oil Raceway looking to improve on his ninth-place finish at the track in the 2011 season.
Unfortunately, after a strong run for Enfinger, at one point working his way up to 7th place, engine failure ended his race early in the Messina Wildlife Stopper 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway.
After rain storms interrupted both practice sessions on Friday, Enfinger qualified his No. 99 Preble-Rish, Breland Homes, BB&T Mortgage, Wurth USA car in 12th position with a speed of 109.216 mph. Enfinger and crew chief, Kelly Kovski, worked to continue adjusting the car so that it was more comfortable exiting turns 3 and 4. After the green flag dropped, Enfinger methodically worked his way into the top ten, making his way up to 7th. After a caution for debris on the track on lap 133, Enfinger came in for a pit stop. After returning to the track and taking the green flag, the No. 99 suffered engine failure at lap 141, resulting in a 27th place finish.
“Kelly and the crew put together a great car,” said Enfinger. “I want to thank the folks at Preble-Rish, Breland Homes, BB&T Mortgage and Wurth USA for their support in getting us to Lucas Oil Raceway. We had a great run going, I just had hoped we could put the No. 99 into Victory Lane.”
Enfinger’s next race will be the Pennsylvania 125 at Pocono Raceway on August 4 with the green flag at 3 pm (ET). He will be running in the No. 09, looking to improve upon last year’sfinishes of 3rd and 5th.
