Chase Purdy was running just outside the top 10 when a late-race caution set up the final round of pit stops with just under 30 laps remaining. While on pit road, a pit gun malfunctioned causing the No. 4 team to lose several spots on pit road. After restating outside the top 20 with 23 laps remaining, Purdy battled his way forward and would end the race with a hard-fought eighth-place finish.
The top-10 finish was Purdy’s career-best fifth of the season.
Chase Purdy, Driver of the No. 4 Bama Buggies Chevrolet:
Talk about your race.
“We had a really fast Bama Buggies Silverado today. We didn’t qualify where we would’ve liked to – it was really loose and I kind of overdrove it. Started 24th and on the first stop we made the truck a lot better. We were really good when the race runs were longer than 15 laps. Really proud of all these guys, we had a tough two weeks and then came out here and had a solid day. Getting some stage points was huge for us and a great way to get headed back in the right direction. Now we need to take this momentum into Charlotte and have another good day.”
