TRUCKS: Garvey Loses Engine, Finishes Last at Charlotte

Mike Garvey picked up the 2nd last-place finish of his Camping World Truck Series career in Friday’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway when his #93 S&W Services Chevrolet fell out with an engine failure after completing 9 of the race’s 134 laps.

Garvey solidly made the field for Friday’s race, having qualified 27th at a speed of 171.668 mph, but went behind the wall two laps before the first caution fell on lap 11. Wayne Edwards, the current last-place leader in the Truck Series, was one of the three trucks who failed to qualify for the race. Edwards has yet to make a Truck Series race in 2010.

Garvey continued the streak of different drivers to finish last in each race during the 2010 Truck Series season, but now the #93 Shane Sieg-owned team is tied with Chris Lafferty’s #89 for the Team Rankings lead.

*The race marked Garvey’s first last-place finish in a Truck Series race since the 2009 Ford 200 at Homestead, where his #38 overheated two laps into the race.
*It is the first time the #93 has ever finished last in a Truck Series race at Charlotte.
