Chassis History/Info Dye and the No. 43 team will compete with GMS Racing chassis no. 348 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This chassis made its debut at Kansas Speedway in May, and Daniel has driven it in four races this season, finishing 13th at Kansas, 19th at Charlotte, 22nd at Nashville, and 23rd in the most recent race at Kansas. First Top-10 Finish Daniel Dye secured his maiden Truck Series top-10 finish in the last outing at Talladega Superspeedway, where he brought the No. 43 Chevrolet home in the sixth position. Elated with the result, Dye has found a new shot of confidence heading into the final two races of the season. Home Race The 2022 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has never raced at Homestead-Miami before, but this weekend feels like a homecoming of sorts for Daniel Dye. Growing up only a few hours away in Deland, Florida, Dye spent his childhood attending short track races that his father, Randy, competed in throughout the state. Ironically, last year was the first time that Daniel had been to Homestead, where he sat on top of Grant Enfinger's pit box and studied the team. This weekend, Daniel will have a large contingent of family and friends who will make the trip south to Saturday's race. Bainbridge at Homestead-Miami Crew Chief Blake Bainbridge has only made one start in his career as a crew chief at Homestead, but he made the most of it. Hosting Jamie McMurray as his driver in the 2004 NASCAR Xfinity Series race, Bainbridge's team was able to finish in second-place. This weekend will see Bainbridge's first Truck Series race at the facility. Xfinity Series Las Vegas Recap Over the off weekend in the Truck Series, Daniel Dye flew out west to make the second NASCAR Xfinity Series start of his career at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Driving the No. 44 Camaro for Alpha Prime Racing, Daniel would roll off from the 23rd starting spot. Midway through the event, Dye had a brilliant save as another car's engine let go directly in front of him. Narrowly able to hang on, Daniel would continue to bring home a 21st place finish. His next Xfinity Series race will be at the season finale in Phoenix Raceway on Saturday, November 4th. From the Driver's Seat How much of a weight off your shoulders did you feel when you were able to score your first top-10 finish last race, and how eager are you to return to Florida? "I'm really looking forward to getting to Homestead. First and foremost, to race in front of my friends and family, as well as having Danny from Bull & Boar Barbecue Shop bringing along his family will be super cool. But yeah, finally being able to get a top-10 was definitely a weight off my shoulders. It was good to finally get that out of the way, and we've also been having some good runs in the Xfinity Series car the last few weeks. So, it will be nice to carry some added momentum from Talladega as well as the two Xfinity races I've made now into Homestead. On that note, I think that the Xfinity races that I've had will make me a better driver when I'm in the truck, so I'm looking forward to see what I can do now that I've ran a couple of mile-and-a-half tracks in a different car to see how it translates to our truck."
