5-Hour Energy Drivers Keep it Hot in the Subway Jalapeno 250

The NASCAR Nationwide Series returned to Daytona International Speedway this week and the 5-Hour Energy drivers manhandled their bruised cars, loose steering and slew of accidents under the lights at the "World Center of Racing" for two top-20 finishes.

5-Hour Energy Racing’s veteran driver Steve Wallace posted his fifth consecutive top-15 series finish – joined by only two other drivers, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski. Wallace, known in previous seasons for his inconsistency, battled to a 12th place finish after a blown engine in practice, which put him to the rear of the pack, and two separate incidents during the Subway Jalapeno 250. Wallace kept consistent in a battered and loose racecar for the race’s remaining 20 laps to hold off Matt Kenseth for another top-15 finish.

In the No. 62 5-Hour Energy Extra Strength Chevrolet, rookie Brendan Gaughan also wrestled with handling issues at Daytona and tailed just a few cars behind his Rusty Wallace Racing teammate Steve Wallace for a 17th place finish. This marked Gaughan’s 11th top-20 performance of the season and the 5-Hour Energy drivers stand side-by-side in 8th and 9th position for the championship rankings with only 6 points separating them.

The team heads to Chicagoland Speedway this week for the 18th race of the season and the second half of an already heart-pumping championship.
