Grant Enfinger, driver of the No. 23 Triple-K Construction / Baldwin Container Company Chevrolet SS earned a 20th-place result after a loss of power in the early stages of the www.SuperChevyStores.com – Allen Crowe 100. Due to inclement weather, the one-hour practice session was cut short and Menards Pole Qualifying was cancelled. The field was set by current 2015 owners points, allowing Enfinger to start first for the 100-lap event. Enfinger held the lead on the opening lap and led the first eight on the mile dirt oval, until an electrical issue occurred under green conditions. The No. 23 machine suffered a total loss of power coming off turn four, resulting in the day’s second caution on lap 11. Enfinger came to pit road where the Jeff Stankiewicz-led team checked the ignition box and returned to the field 28th, four laps down. The incident relegated Enfinger to a 20th-place finish, four laps down after one attempt at a green-white-checkered finish. GMS Racing will continue their journey along with Enfinger for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards championship at the DuQuoin State Fair, one-mile dirt oval, Monday, September 7th.

GRANT ENFINGER QUOTE:

“Tough day for all of us at GMS Racing. We had a really fast Triple-K Construction / Baldwin Container Company Chevrolet. I lost all power after a main wire to the ignition box came unplugged. I can’t thank the GMS Racing crew enough. They did a great job today and we had a really fast car. We need to put this behind us and focus on DuQuoin now. Once again, thank you to all of my supporters: Triple-K Construction, Baldwin Container Company, Allegiant Travel and WURTH U.S.A.”
