John Wes Townley came to Bristol Motor Speedway with high hopes after a career best finish last week at Michigan International Speedway. While the UNOH 200 turned out to be less than desired for Townley and the No. 7 Zaxby's Toyota Tundra team, he managed to demonstrate his ability to drive under difficult conditions. Townley qualified in the 22nd position and managed to pick off one truck at a time.
Townley raced his way into the top-15 and was racing in the 12th position when he spun coming out of turn four sustaining a fair amount of damage to his Tundra. The Zaxby's team secured the Tundra to get back out on track and finish 30th.
John Wes Townley talks about the race at Bristol Motor Speedway:
"It's very frustrating because our finish does not show what our Zaxby's Toyota Tundra was capable of. We had a great truck tonight and were making really great strides. The guys did a great job to get us back out on track but unfortunately there is no way to recover all the laps we lost doing the repairs."
