Ross Chastain sits ninth in Xfinity Series driver points entering Saturday’s Whelen 200 at ISM Raceway, and he intends to protect that spot over the season’s final two races.
The season will end at Homestead, Fla. Nov. 17.
“We’ve had a great season, and we intend for it to continue over these final two weeks,” Chastain said. “We’ve had great cars recently, and I’m sure we’ll have another strong Chevy at Phoenix. To finish in the seasonal top 10 will be a major accomplishment.”
Chastain has raced in seven Xfinity events at Phoenix and has a top finish of 19th.
Practice is scheduled Friday at 2:35 and 4:35 p.m. (ET). Qualifying is set for 12:35 p.m. Saturday, with the race to follow at 3:30 p.m.
