Taylor Gray, No. 17 Ripper Coffee Ford Fusion
Gray qualified 12th for his debut at Watkins Glen International. He moved into ninth on the opening lap and and was seventh by lap 11.
Yellow flag waved on lap 17 and ARCA officials deemed it the competition caution for pit stops. The 17 crew changed four tires, added fuel and made a trackbar adjustment.
The 16 year old ran in sixth until lap 26 when he swapped positions with teammate Riley Herbst and settled into seventh.
Gray battled a super tight handling Fusion for the remaining fifteen laps, but held on and ultimately finished seventh. He will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut tomorrow afternoon.
