Quick Recap: Despite a ninth-place qualifying effort at Madison International Speedway, Gus Dean and his Win-Tron Racing flexed their muscle in Friday night’s Herr’s Potato Chips 200.
While Dean and crew chief Jamie Jones weren’t satisfied with the handling of their No. 32 GREE Cooling Products | Baker Distributing Chevrolet SS, the duo went to work following practice.
In qualifying, the car was better with Dean producing the ninth fastest time in time trials.
When the green flag waved however, the Bluffton, S.C. proved just how much better his GREE Racing Chevrolet was – moving forward and staying there.
Running as high as second during the race, the opted for a different tire strategy that didn’t allow the 23-year-old to grab four tires and fuel until after the halfway point.
From there, Dean settled into his own pace and despite wearing out his No. 32 GREE Cooling Products | Baker Distributing Chevrolet towards the finish chasing his second-career ARCA victory, the former ARCA Racing Series winner hung on for his second consecutive top-five finish on the heels of a fourth-place result last Friday afternoon at Michigan International Speedway.
The effort from the Mooresville, N.C.-based team is the third consecutive top-10 for the Win-Tron Racing team dating back to Pocono (Pa.) Raceway earlier this month. After eight races, Dean has maneuvered two top-five, four top-10s, five top-15s and seven top-20 efforts so far this season.
Gus Dean Quote: “So, so proud.
 
“We didn’t have the best No. 32 GREE Cooling Products | Baker Distributing Chevrolet when we unloaded this morning, but Jamie (Jones, crew chief), Kevin (Cywinski) and the Win-Tron Racing guys really worked their butts off to get our car better.
“We were good during the race. We made up a ton of spots and my pit crew was lighting fast. I wore out the car there in the second half trying to get to the lead – but we still came home with a top-five finish and I’m proud of that.
“I cannot thank GREE Cooling Products, Baker Distributing, Jamie, my team and everyone who allows our racing program to happen. We’ll take this momentum and keep digging going to Gateway Motorsports Park next week.
“I’m excited to get there.”
