Chris slipped back to a 23rd place outing in the 50-lap affair.

“The result of the Street Stock feature was a little disappointing, but overall I couldn’t have asked for much more this weekend,” Brown commented. “I really appreciate everyone who supports my racing program. We didn’t race as much as I would’ve liked this year, but I feel like we made the most of every opportunity that we had when we did race.”
