Townley Rebounds to 18th at Bristol Motor Speedway in NASCAR Nationwide Series Event

John Wes Townley rebounded to an 18th place finish Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, in the running of the Food City 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series event, piloting the No. 25 Zaxby’s – ‘The Identical’ movie (www.TheIdenticalMovie.com) Toyota Camry after a blown tire sends the Athenian Motorsports driver for a spin on lap 49.

Townley placed the Athenian Motorsports entry in the 28th place on the starting grid for the Food City 300 but due to an adjustment after qualifying the driver had to start from the rear of the 40 car field in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race. Townley managed to wheel the Toyota Camry to the 27th place when a tire went down causing the first caution on the .533-mile Bristol, TN short track.

With pit strategy and defensive driving, the Athenian Motorsports driver was able to advance to an 18th place finish for Zaxby’s and ‘The Identical’ movie at the historic Bristol Motor Speedway.

“We had a shock break during qualifying which put us to the back of the field for the beginning of the race,” John Wes Townley. “I was giving it everything I had to get past as many cars as I could when I felt the right rear tire go down. Thankfully, when I spun I was able to keep the car off the inside wall. The pit stops were spot on and we were able to gain some positions on pit road. Mike Beam and the guys on this team never stopped working hard all weekend to give me a good car and I’m happy that we were able to come home with a solid top-20 finish for Zaxby’s and the Identical (movie).”

Townley heads home to Georgia next weekend for the running of the Great Clips 300 to benefit FEED the Children at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Saturday, August 30, 2014.
