Ryan Preece continues to ride on the road this weekend as the Xfinity Series visits the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Preece finished 27th in last week’s road race at Watkins Glen International after suspension problems sent his JD Motorsports with Gary Keller Chevrolet to the garage.

The series’ second straight road race is scheduled Saturday at Mid-Ohio, where Preece will race for the first time.

“Every lap of experience is important for me on these new tracks,” Preece said. “We didn’t get to finish at the Glen last week. We’ll have a better, stronger car at Mid-Ohio. We’re looking for a big weekend.”

The Mid-Ohio course is 2.085 miles with 13 turns.

Preece is 18th in Xfinity driver points entering the race.

Practice is scheduled at Mid-Ohio at 9 a.m. and 11:35 a.m. Friday, with qualifying set for 6:15 p.m. Saturday’s race is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.


  1. Little off topic but does anyone know why Ryan was so upset with Max Zachem at end of race last night at Thompson? For fun I watched Ryan drive up through the field after starting at the rear and he definitely used the nerf bars a time or eight, so if someone roughed him up on the way buy,which I personally didn’t see, he’s the last person who should be upset. Then him and Rocco go at it in the SK race. Sometimes the finger he was using should be pointed in the mirror.

  2. There was a ton of tension last night… some close racing and nobody was being exceptionally polite about it. Racing is very close with these SPEC motor cars and the drivers now have to earn the pass, can’t depend on exceptional horsepower, except the 2 of course. So drivers get frustrated when it takes a few laps to earn a pass, instead of a blip of the throttle.

    It must be his engagement that got him all uptight last night. In the first SK race, he gave the finger to the 1A car (Norton) going fown the backstretch during the race. Rocco said he got his payback from the last race. And going through the field in the tour race was fun to watch, but some guys were not making it easy for him and he ruffled a few feathers doing it.
