Jason Bowles was on his way to possibly the best finish of his NASCAR Nationwide Series career Saturday in Montreal.

Running between 10th and 15th throughout the race, Bowles was just waiting for the final segment of the race to make his move to the front.  Unfortunately, the right front brake failed on lap 61 heading into the hairpin corner, sending Jason into the gravel.  The team fought hard to get Jason back on the track and were able to salvage a 26th place finish.

“We were just biding our time out there and preparing for what we knew would be a wild finish,” explained Jason.  “The car was driving really well and then we had that brake failure on the right front that ended our shot at a strong finish.  I really have to thank my American Majority team though as they just never give up, even on the bad days.”

“Jason’s a really good road racer and he was doing an excellent job,” says crew chief John Monsam.  “It’s unfortunate what happened with the brakes but that’s racing, it’s going to happen to everyone.  The crew did an excellent job all weekend though getting the car right for him and in the pits as well.”

The 26th place finish dropped Jason two spots in the point standings to 15th, still just 27th points from 10th. The MacDonald Motorsports No. 81 also dropped two spots in the owner standings, now sitting 23rd.

Next week, the American Majority team goes back to racing in circles, this time at the “World’s Fastest Half-Mile” in Bristol, Tennessee.  The Food City 25 can be seen live on ESPN this Friday night at 7PM ET.
