2013 Chicagoland II: Chad Hackenbracht NASCAR Nationwide Race Recap

2013 Chicagoland II: Chad Hackenbracht NASCAR Nationwide Race Recap

Race Recap:

Chad Hackenbracht made his fifth career start at Chicagoland Speedway during Saturday's Dollar General 300 powered by Coke. Hackenbracht made his first career NASCAR Nationwide Series start in "The Windy City" in July while driving for TriStar Motorsports. He has three previous starts in the ARCA Racing Series while driving for his family-owned team.

Qualifying in the 27th position, Hackenbracht was hopeful about his second Nationwide Series start at the D-shaped, 1.5-mile oval.

After qualifying, Hackenbracht's crew discovered a hole in the radiator of the No. 44 Ingersoll Rand Toyota. Replacing the radiator is considered an unapproved adjustment during post-qualifying impound, therefore the No. 44 was forced to drop to the rear of the field upon the start of the 200 lap race.

Hackenbracht made his charge toward the front from the drop of the green flag, breaking into the top-30 only five laps into the event, despite fighting a loose condition.

Early in the event, long green flag runs set the tempo making it difficult for the team to find time to make the necessary adjustments to correct the loose handling condition on the Ingersoll Rand Toyota.

Throughout the event's six cautions and two green flag pit stops, the Ingersoll Rand crew kept making strides to help Hackenbracht's loose handling Toyota. Doing so put Hackenbracht in position to match his best finish to date in the Nationwide Series.

With 13 laps to go Hackenbracht broke into the top-20, but fell one spot in the closing laps to finish 21st.

Chad Hackenbracht's Post Race Comments:

"I'm pleased with our finish this weekend. We were racing with the top 15 cars at the end of the race, but got caught laps down. We had a discouraging start to the race, but my team worked hard and we had a respectable outcome. I am continuing to grasp these [Nationwide Series] cars and I think I'm making positive strides. I greatly appreciate Ingersoll Rand for being on board this weekend and for their continued partnership with my racing career." - Chad Hackenbracht
