While Talladega Superspeedway didn’t provide an upset winner over the weekend, it teased one with Gray Gaulding‘s surprising late-race charge to a second-place finish in Saturday’s Xfinity Series race.
The SS Green Light Racing driver earned his best finish in 84 starts across NASCAR’s national three series. He also qualified for the final $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus this weekend at Dover International Speedway.
But the good feelings took a hit Monday. Gaulding posted a video on Twitter revealing that the sponsorship planned for the Dover race had fallen through.
Gaulding has created a website, sponsorgray.com, in an effort to secure sponsorship for Saturday’s race and beyond.
“We have the entire season open,” Gaulding said in the video. “So if you guys know of anybody that not only wants to do one race, but maybe more races, we’d love to have you.”
In the eight races since the season-opener at Daytona, Gaulding and the No. 08 Chevrolet have not finished worse than 21st and have three top 15s, including the Talladega finish.
