– Key Takeaway: Kaden Honeycutt and the No. 45 team experienced a roller coaster-like eventful day at Charlotte. In practice, Honeycutt damaged the right side of his truck after contact with another competitor. The crew repaired the truck well enough to qualify in the top-10, and after starting ninth, he began to march to the front. Honeycutt would make it up to second at the end of stage one, and backed up the performance with a fourth-place run in stage two. Issues on pit road forced Honeycutt to the rear of the field on two occasions, but he was able to rally back to a seventh-place finish.

– Kaden Honeycutt’s Post-Race Thoughts: “Man, what an amazing R.D.C. Chevy we had tonight. I can’t thank Phil (Gould), Cody (Efaw), and Al (Niece) enough for the opportunity to race for this Niece Motorsports team. I’m gutted that we weren’t able to pull off the win after coming so close, but I know there are so many positives to take away from here. Stuff happens, and while I wish the result was better, I can walk away knowing how much speed we have. My guys never quit working on it. We had a wrecked truck in practice and had to go to the back twice tonight, and still came home with a top-10. Everyone is putting so much effort in here and I can’t wait to get back in this truck at Nashville.”
