TOLEDO, Ohio - After being involved in an incident early in the Glass City 300, Mark Dismore rebounded to finish 14th at the Toledo Speedway on Sunday afternoon.

On lap 38, Dismore avoided a spin in front of him, but was not so lucky when a competitor drilled him from behind. The contact sent the Monster.com/WorldBestBuy.com Chevrolet into the wall with damage to the rear of the car. The No. 44 crew repaired the machine and Dismore continued, losing only one lap to the leaders.

"I saw the No. 12 car spinning," Dismore explains. "I checked up, then got nailed from behind. I guess the No. 48 and his spotter didn't see the wreck fast enough and he didn't check up. He got into me and I spun into the No. 12 car then hit the wall. I wasn't sure how the car was going to be after the hit. It was loose with the spoiler down, but the car worked well after the contact."

    "We were looking to do well in the race," Dismore said.  "We ran well in 
practice.  I felt comfortable with the Monster.com/WorldBestBuy.com Chevrolet 
Monte Carlo and the track.  On the start (of the race), I backed up a little, 
but then I got my rhythm going.  I was playing catch up, but I just wanted to 
take my time.  Then we got in that wreck and we struggled a little."

"The guys worked their tails off to get these cars ready after the past few races," Dismore continues. "I feel bad knowing we could've walked out of here with a top-10 finish, but it's just 'one of those racing deals.' I look forward to heading to Jennerstown where we can pull off a good finish if everything goes our way."

Randy Herzog, co-owner of the No. 44 Herzog Motorsports entry, was pleased with Dismore's race. "Mark could've easily pulled off a top-10 finish, had he not been spun early and damaged the car. He was running as fast as the leaders. As always, the Monster.com/WorldBestBuy.com crew will be prepared and determined when they head to Jennerstown next week."
