The finish was Green’s sixth in the last nine races and his 11th of the 2012 season, tying NASCAR’s all-time single-season last-place record set by Jeff Fuller in 2004. This Friday, Green has a chance to break Fuller’s record at Bristol, scene of his record-setting fourth-consecutive last-place finish last year.
Green qualified 25th for Saturday’s race at an average speed of 93.514 mph, ranking him sixth among the fourteen "go-or-go-homers" who attempted to qualify for the event. Only Ryan Ellis did not qualify, resulting in the second consecutive DNQ for the #52 Jimmy Means-owned team.
In the race itself, Green was the first to fall out, though the ESPN broadcast showed The Motorsports Group teammates Chase Miller and Matt DiBenedetto running in the final two spots. However, in the final running order, Green was 43rd once again, with Miller and DiBenedetto 42nd and 40th, respectively.
*This was Green’s second consecutive last-place finish at Montreal.
*This was the first last-place finish for the #10 at Montreal, and the first time a driver finished last at the track due to a vibration.
