SOURCE: Rubbin's Racin'
Dennis Setzer picked up the 4th last-place finish of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Friday’s Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 200 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway when his unsponsored #38 RSS Racing Chevrolet fell out with rear gear problem after completing 2 of the race’s 130 laps.

The finish was Setzer’s second of the 2012 season, and his first since Dover, eight races ago.

Last weekend, Setzer qualified last in the 36-truck field at an average speed of 169.697 mph, besting Jennifer Jo Cobb, Norm Benning, and current LASTCAR Nationwide Series leader Jeff Green who did not make the field. After two laps of the race, Setzer followed Blake Koch in Jo Cobb’s backup truck to the garage area. Setzer was credited with the 36th finishing position.
