John Wes Townley and the No.7 Zaxby's Toyota Tundra qualified for the 150-lap event in the 15th-place. There are too many variables in racing and most of them are completely out of the driver's control. On a restart with 31 laps to go the Zaxby's tundra was involved in an accident with another competitor that ultimately ended Townley's day. At race's end, the team was scored 27th.
This was in no way indicative of John Wes' season in that the past seven races, Townley has finished 13th or better, with four top-10 finishes on all different types of tracks.
John Wes Townley talks about his race at Phoenix International Raceway:
"We had a really good Zaxby's Toyota Tundra. We were stuck back in traffic and never really were able to capitalize on track position. Unfortunately, we got taken out and it ended our night. Really disappointing for how well our team has been performing. Hopefully we'll go get one in Homestead."
