The DC Solar 200 was a wild race, interrupted twice by unexpected rain showers. However, team JD Motorsports with Gary Keller and driver Ross Chastain persevered with a top-20 finish. The No. 4 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro came home in 19th place at ISM Raceway.
Chastain advanced to round two of NASCAR Xfinity Series qualifying and started the race in 18th place. Using smart pit road strategy, the No. 4 team raced as high as 3rd place during the DC Solar 200.
“It was hectic being in and out of the car, stop and go with the rain in the desert,” said Chastain. “The No. 4 Flex Seal Chevy was consistent. We kept working on it and made it turn the center better and better, which is what we fought during the green flag runs. We definitely made some gains here in Phoenix, and I’m looking forward to California.”
Next up for the NASCAR Xfinity Series is the Service King 300 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, C.A., on March 17th, 2018.
