TriStar Motorsports replaces Nemco Motorsports in top 30 of Nationwide owners standings

By Lee Montgomery

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. - The top 30 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series owners standings saw a shakeup after the Bucyrus 200 at Road America on Saturday.

The No. 35 TriStar Motorsports team moved into the top 30 for the first time and will be locked in next weekend's race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Tony Ave was running in the top 10 until a late-race spin, but he still finished 20th. TriStar, which usually fields cars for Jason Keller, is 30th in the owners standings.

Nemco Motorsports' No. 87 team dropped out of the top 30 after Antonio Perez's engine failed and he finished 38th. Nemco is four points behind TriStar.

Team Rensi Motorsports' No. 24 team moved up three spots despite Eric McClure's 27th-place finish. McClure. who had surgery to repair a torn muscle earlier in the week, got out of the car during the first caution and was replaced by Chris Cook.

The battle for the final spots in the top 30 remained close, as less than 100 points separate 26th-place R3 Motorsports and Nemco.
