After a phenomenal qualifying of 4th for the first time at this track. The 1st race of the weekend was a disappointment. Strickland managed to close up his front nose while bump drafting. This caused the car to overheat and he had to come into the pit which put him at a finish of 18th place out of 24 racers. The second race he qualified 7th but with a bad start and missed shift then a teammate managed to spin in front and Strickland wrecked into him so the race was a DNF.
