Garrett Smithley finished 23rd Saturday in the Bar Harbor 200 Xfinity Series race at Dover International Speedway.
Smithley drove the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller No. 0 Chevrolet with sponsorship from Heroes Haven.
“It wasn’t the finish we were looking for today,” Smithley said. “We dropped off the lead pace and couldn’t make up time. We brought it home, though, and learned some stuff here. We’ll be ready at Kansas.”
Smithley is 19th in Xfinity driver points.
Point leader Christopher Bell won the race.
The series rolls on to Kansas Speedway for an Oct. 20 race, the opener of the next round of the playoffs.
