Tim George Jr. Finishes 24th at Kentucky Speedway Following Late Race Incident

Tim George Jr. and the No. 2 Applebee's/Potomac Family Dining Group Chevrolet team settled for a 24th-place finish in the UNOH 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Kentucky Speedway after being involved in a late-race accident Thursday evening. George Jr. started the 150-lap affair from the 15th position and battled a loose-handling condition in the early stages of the race. The New York City native made two scheduled visits to pit road for the Gere Kennon-led pit crew to work on the handling of the No. 2 Chevrolet. As the laps wound down, George Jr. worked his way into the top 15 before sliding up the race track and making contact with the turn two outside wall on lap 102. The Applebee's Chevrolet sustained major damage to the rear end, which led to several visits to pit road for repairs and ultimately leaving George Jr. to cross the finish line in the 24th position.
TIM GEORGE JR. QUOTE:
"We had a really fast Applebee's/Potomac Family Dining Group Chevrolet this week at Kentucky Speedway; we just didn't get the finish to show for it. I have to thank Gere (Kennon, Crew Chief) and the entire No. 2 team for all of their hard work this week. That was not the way I wanted to end the day, but we will move forward and begin focusing on my next race with the No. 2 team at Iowa Speedway."
