Braden, a two-time ARCA/CRA super series champion, was among top 5 for most of the race

DAYTONA, Florida – In his first ARCA Series race of 2018, RFMS driver Travis Braden was among the top drivers in the final lap of the Lucas Oil 200 Driven By General Tire at Daytona when a multi-car crash cost him a chance for a top 3 finish.

Braden, driving the MatrixCare-Consonus Healthcare-Liberty Village No. 27 car, gave the following statement from inside the track at Daytona International Speedway:

“We were in a great position to finish in the top three, possibly even winning the race going into the final lap. Unfortunately the nature of Super Speedway racing means everyone is trying to win at the end and on the last lap the leaders spun right in front of us. I want to thank my fans, our great RFMS Racing Team and owner Don Fike, and our sponsors for their tremendous support. We learned a lot at Daytona, and we have 19 more races to run this year. We’re looking forward to going to Nashville in April.”
