Ryan Preece turned in another strong performance in the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller No. 01 Chevrolet Saturday, finishing 19th in the Menards 250 at Michigan International Speedway.
Preece finished on the lead lap after running as high as 17th during the afternoon.
The JD Motorsports teammates of Preece, Ross Chastain and Garrett Smithley just missed finishing in a three-car sweep. Chastain finished 16th, and Smithley was 17th. Preece was running 18th until a late-race electrical problem dropped him one spot to 19th, behind Brendan Gaughan.
“Our teams had another very fine afternoon,” team owner Johnny Davis said. “I’m very proud of our drivers and team guys. They’ve worked very hard lately, and it is showing on the racetrack.”
Daniel Suarez won Saturday’s race and kept the series point lead.
The series rolls on to Iowa Speedway for a June 19 race. Tune in to see if this smaller race team can break into the top 15 for their Iowa race results!
