4 drivers post career-best finishes at Daytona

Four drivers netted career-high finishes in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Friday (July 5) at Daytona International Speedway.

Justin Haley, Brandon Brown, Matt Mills and Vinnie Miller all posted their highest finishes to date in the series at the 2.5-mile speedway.

Haley led four laps en route to a runner-up finish to Kaulig Racing teammate Ross Chastain. His prior career-best was a fifth-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway this past May.

Brown posted his first top-10 finish of his Xfinity Series career for his family’s Brandonbilt Motorsports with a seventh-place finish. His previous best was 13th-place three times this season (Atlanta, Dover and Pocono).

Matt Mills, in his first full-time season with B.J. McLeod Motorsports, scored an 11th-place run, besting a prior top finish of 17th at Talladega in April.

Vinnie Miller, also competing for B.J. McLeod Motorsports, finished 12th. His previous high was 17th in two prior races.

One driver made their NXS debut in the Daytona race. Stefan Parsons, son of former Cup Series driver and team owner Phil Parsons, drove for B.J. McLeod Motorsports, finishing on the lead lap in 13th.

The next race for the series will be Alsco 300, the 17th NXS race of 2019, at Kentucky Speedway next Friday night, July 12.
