With iffy weather, teams headed to the track unsure if there would be practice, qualifying, or even a race at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway for the Music City 200 in the ARCA Menards East series. Zachary was 8th quickest in practice after adjustments and tweaks to the car that had the NASCAR Foundation NASCAR Day Giveathon logo on the hood. He then qualified 7th in the #11 Fast Track Racing car.
Overall, the race was a fairly clean and green race except for two spins that brought out cautions in addition to the planned stops. Tinkle was the benefactor of gaining laps back for multiple cautions. He ended the race two laps down, completing 203 laps in the overtime Music City 200 race in the 7th position. This marks Tinkle’s third consecutive Top 10 finish in the ARCA Menards East Series schedule.
The NASCAR Foundation NASCAR Day Giveathon starts Tuesday May 16, 2023 at 5:00 PM and continues through May 19, 2023.
