crazy. I couldn't have imagined a situation like that in just my second race. I'm learning something every single lap I'm driving one of these cars. He [McKenzie] was a great teacher, and I feel lucky that I was able to take advantage of the situation and be where I am today."
Kuhlman almost passed McKenzie too. He was in fifth place, just 0.359 of a second behind Thursday's winner, when time ran out. Kuhlman set the fastest lap of that race on the white-flag lap while he was trying to chase down McKenzie.
"I had a great weekend!" Kuhlman said. "Top-five finishes were my goals so we were successful. Last year I totaled my car here, so to come home with 26 points and not a scratch on the Kuhlsport machine is really rewarding. To have three Wright Motorsports cars in the top five is just awesome."
