Green qualified 27th with a speed of 127.977 mph, ranking him ninth among the fourteen “go-or-go-homers” who made the show. Both Green and Scott Speed retired on the same lap, followed by Chase Miller and Josh Wise, two more of Speed’s teammates from Curtis Key’s The Motorsports Group.
The finish was Green’s second in a row and his eighth in the last fifteen Nationwide Series races, dating back to the start of his four-race streak at Iowa last summer. Green now holds sole possession of third in the all-time LASTCAR rankings, breaking a tie with the late J.D. McDuffie.
