Race Preview – No. 41 Worldwide Express Chevrolet Silverado

Chastain and the #41 Chevrolet Worldwide Express came to life after the team’s first pit stop of the night on lap 20, cutting through the field on the closing laps of stage one to cross the finish line in second. After winning the race out of the pits during the stage break, Chastain took control of the race and was in the lead for a majority of the second stage before giving way to teammate Carson Hocevar and settling for another second place in the stage.

The #41 team again won the race out of the pits before the start of the final stage before Chastain and John Hunter Nemechek began battling for the lead after the ensuing restart. After giving up the lead, Chastain was dropped back to fifth when two trucks came together and forced the two-time Cup Series winner to check and lose ground on the leaders. On the final restart – starting third – Chastain suffered a transmission failure before the first corner, finally ending his night and finishing in 25th place.

Chastain led four times for 46 laps on the night – second to winner Nemechek’s total of 69.

Chastain on his strong run at Darlington: “We had a fast Worldwide Express Chevrolet Silverado tonight. We led laps and were in position to race for a win but, unfortunately, the transmission locked up in second gear on the final restart. We’re disappointed with the end result, but I’m proud of Niece Motorsports’ effort and happy for Carson Hocevar and the #42 team. Their day is coming.
