NASCAR driver Johanna Long scored her Nationwide Series career best finish tonight at the Subway Jalapeno 250 at the Daytona International Speedway. The nineteen-year-old sustained minor damage in a wreck but was able to dodge a few more wrecks and a Green-White-Checker finish to finish 12th. After qualifying 11th, Long worked with a number of driver to stay in the top-25 for the majority of the race. Her strong finish was overshadowed by the wreck of Danica Patrick, but it is certainly a great accomplishment for the entire #70 team.
Congratulations to Johanna and her ML Motorsports team. Keep up the good work and finishes will continue to improve. Johanna will be back in the #70 at Chicagoland Speedway on July 22.
