“We had a pretty good car for a tough track,” Preece said. “This track demands a lot from a driver, the team and the car. We were looking for a better finish, but it wasn’t a bad day for the first time out here.”
Preece drove the Castleton Outdoor Solutions Chevrolet with more sponsorship from Lyndhurst Lawnmower, Toro and Ferris. He stayed in 18th in Xfinity points.
