Lewandoski was filling in for LASTCAR record-breaker Jeff Green, who was in New Hampshire attempting to get Humphrey-Smith’s #19 Ford into Sunday’s Sprint Cup race. While Green was unable to make Sunday’s field, Lewandoski timed in 28th Saturday at an average speed of 169.337 mph, ranking him third behind only Scott Lagasse, Jr. and Chase Miller among the thirteen "go-or-go-homers" who qualified.
Four laps into the race, Lewandoski was behind the wall, securing a 13th last-place finish for the #10 in 2012. Not far behind were three Chevrolets from The Motorsports Group, plus Rick Ware’s #75 piloted by Matt Carter.
*This was the first last-place finish for the #10 in a Nationwide Series race at Kentucky.
