LOUDON, N.H. – After a strong qualifying effort, Ryan Preece scored a 19th-place finish in Saturday’s AutoLotto 200 Xfinity Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Preece, driving the Mizzy Construction/Falmouth Ready Mix Chevrolet at his home track, made the final round of Xfinity qualifying for the first time this season and started the race 12th.

He ran with the top group most of the day until his afternoon was dampened by involvement in a seven-car accident 25 laps from the finish.

His Chevy was damaged, and he lost more ground when his right front tire blew on the next restart.

Preece ran as high as ninth.

“It was great to come ‘home’ and do so well,” Preece said. “I’ve got to thank my sponsors for putting us in position to have a great run. We should have finished higher, but the late-race accident knocked us back.”

Preece stayed 18th in Xfinity driver points.

Kyle Busch won the race, and Daniel Suarez kept the points lead.

The Xfinity Series moves on to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a July 23 race.


  1. Too bad the great haters and predictors weren’t there to see it.It was surely going to be the top 10 finish that some of our learned commenters said would never happen.

  2. True man
    Knew ryan would do good
    Hate those jealous people


  4. Art it didn’t happen!!!

  5. Best run so far. The one problem I have is the xfinity series is now so predictable. Nascar needs to find away to make the racing a more even playing field. The series is becoming unwatchable and is killing the attendance for the cup series. People are starting to stay home because they don’t want to travel 200 miles for one race on Sunday.

  6. Franky,its been happening along time now.Even cup teams are losing sponsorship.They used to have Tide and many other products plastered all over their cars,and yes Elect it didn’t happen but it certainly will.This kid is a special talent and I think a great team player.It will happen.

    Only reason, I went to Louden was to see Ryan. Very happy with His efforts. He can drive.
    Not soo happy with pit crew. Slow. I don’t think using the face of a good tire, to press a pipe on to move fender off was a good idea. Right front blows going into #1. Great job for Ryann to keep it of the wall.
    I hope we clean-up are mistakes move forward. Ryan can make it too the CHASE

  8. Yes art there was a time you could make it on talent, but that was years ago ,not the case anymore it takes deep pockets and a little bit of talent,it’s a business

  9. Andy Boright says

    I can tell you Jeff Burton wasn’t impressed with Preece at the end of the race. He thought Preece cost Jones a chance to catch Busch.

  10. Elect,What you say is true thats why he has to keep turning heads.
