Riley Herbst Ties Career-Best Finish at Kentucky

Thursday, July 09. 2020., Riley Herbst races at Kentucky SpeedwayRiley Herbst Ties Career-Best Finish at Kentucky
Riley Herbst led the way for Team Toyota at Kentucky Speedway tying a career-best finish of second in Thursday evening’s NASCAR Xfinity race. 

“Everybody on this Monster Energy Supra – we did a good job all day. We ran probably fourth all day. We over-adjusted the car there at the end and got too tight,” Herbst said. “All in all, we’ve had speed all year, we just haven’t been able to capitalize, mostly on my part, in these final stages of the races. Once we start capitalizing, we’ll start getting good finishes like this. This was a good one.”

Herbst’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Harrison Burton had a strong finish in sight, but misfortune struck late in the race causing Burton to spin. The No. 20 driver finished 17th.
