Chevrolet and the NASCAR Nationwide Series

Texas Motor Speedway saw a lot of action over the weekend from the NASCAR Nationwide Series 17th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts 300.

And, much of that action was performed by Chevrolet as its cars raced around the 1.5-mile Fort Worth track a total of 200 times.

Austin Dillon started and finished in third place. Sporting the number three, Dillon raced the AdvoCare Chevrolet.

With the Hellmann’s Chevrolet, Dale Earnhardt Jr. placed right behind Dillon. Earnhardt took the number 88 from eleventh place to fourth.

Starting in seventh, Kevin Harvick took fifth place. Harvick raced a number 33 Chevrolet Camaro for Hunt Brothers Pizza.

Regan Smith, who raced the number seven TaxSlayer.com Chevrolet, took seventh place after starting in sixth.

Behind him was Great Clips Chevrolet driver Kasey Kahne. The number five took a great leap from sixteenth place to eighth.

Closing in on the top ten was Brandt Chevrolet driver Justin Allgaier, who started in fourteenth in his number 31.

You may not be able to race Chevrolets like these professionals, but Tom Naquin of Elkhart Indiana is proud to provide an extensive selection of top-performing Chevrolets to the greater South Bend area.
