You’re heard of “home field advantage.” Well, there’s no such thing in NASCAR. All drivers have their favorite tracks. Those that fit their style of driving and those where they’ve had previous success. For Mandy Chick, the driver of the #74 ARCA race team, the pressure was on to perform in front of her friends and family. Being from right up the road in DeSoto, Kansas she had a bunch of fans in the stands at Kansas Speedway Friday night. And she delivered with a top 10 finish! Of course, she’d rather have won, a few lug nuts that got away from the pit crew may have been the difference that evening, but finishing 9th was pretty sweet for Mandy and her team. Mandy Chick is the latest guest on Crews’ “Days Of Thunder Podcast“! I caught up her signing autographs and supporting the Hero Fund USA charity before the Xfinity race on Saturday.

Later Saturday afternoon, John Nemechek, driver of the #20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, continued his dominance of the Xfinity series scoring his 6th win of the season! He blew the field away and locked himself into the next round of the NASCAR Playoffs. The Xfinity race was exciting! There were several yellows has the drivers battled to win their way into the next round. More from the fall race weekend at Kansas Speedway coming soon!
