WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – Ryan Preece finished 27th in Saturday’s Zippo 200 Xfinity Series race at Watkins Glen International after a suspension problem sent him to the garage 67 laps into the race’s 82.

The race marked Preece’s debut at the twisting road course. He ran as high as sixth after qualifying 21st.

“You can’t predict every problem that’s going to pop up,” Preece said. “It’s unfortunate. I thought we had a representative car, and I had gotten used to the quirks of the track.”

Preece stayed 18th in Xfinity driver points.

Joey Logano won the race, and Elliott Sadler kept the point lead.

The Xfinity Series moves on to Mid-Ohio for an Aug. 13 race, the second of three road-course events this year.


  1. Gee, no suspension issue for Ross Chastain.

  2. You need a good Team with $$$$. You are not going forward with JD Motor Sports. Not enough $$$ to support your talent,

    Its a crying shame that money dictates who gets the best rides and a guy like Ryan ends up with the short end of the stick, super talent has such a narrow window of opportunity to get a secure ride in Infinity series the trucks or cup, not to mention that kids 11 to 15 years old are running late models which is gonna kill nascar because who is gonna travel and buy seats and a motel to root for a kid in the 7th grade? thats quarter midget or gokart age! And a good percentage of these kids are gonna burn out or live like adults too soon and alcohol and drug use, suicide goes hand in hand with success at too young of an age.
