John Wes Townley: Red Horse Racing Homestead-Miami Post Race Report

John Wes Townley and the No. 7 Zaxby’s Toyota Tundra team have finished 15th or better in seven of the last eight 1.5-mile speedway races, with a record like that – they were eager to capture another great finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Townley qualified in the 14th-position which is a good place to be on the start as Homestead is a track where mayhem can be a factor. With a neutral Tundra the majority of the race, the Zaxby’s Toyota Tundra team were able to put themselves in position when it mattered most.

Townley was sitting in the 17th spot when the caution fell on lap 131 for the first attempt at a Green-White-Checkered finish. As always, the Truck Series delivers with close, side-by-side racing and the first time this season at three G-W-C attempts. Townley was able to capitalize on the three restarts and bring home a sixth-place finish which ties for a career-high finish in the Truck Series. The finish marked Townley’s seventh top-10 finish of the season and moved him into 11th position in the driver’s point standings.


John Wes Townley talks about his race at Homestead-Miami Speedway:

“The finish today doesn’t stand for how good our run was tonight. I think if we had a few more laps on that last restart, I think we would’ve been able to get another position or two. All-in-all, a great way to finish the year with another top-10 finish backing up my best finish so far in the Truck Series. I’m really happy about my Zaxby’s Toyota Tundra team and what we were able to accomplish this season.”
