_mg_0771 Deborah Renshaw made her second start behind the wheel of the No. 112 Chevrolet on Friday night at Nashville, Tennessee's Music City Motorplex since making her return to the NASCAR Late Models on June 30th.

Renshaw and her Hooked Up Motorsports team qualified third and picked up their second top-five finish in a row at the .596-mile short track in a field of 15 cars.

"Friday night was decent," said Renshaw following the race. "We started third and finished fourth. We stayed with the leaders almost all night. We ran third for more than half the race and then Steadman Marlin ended up passing us. We stayed right on Steadman's bumper until the last 10 laps or so.

Then, the car got worse as the race continued. We ended up finishing fourth, making for a frustrating night." Despite her frustration, the Bowling Green, Kentucky-native was thankful for all the help from her team. "All in all I was proud of the guys on the team for hanging in there with me. They were very encouraging even though they knew from the start of the race that we had an ill-handling car."

Debsmall Renshaw's fought a tight condition throughout the race which kept her from making a charge to the front in the No. 112 Chevrolet. "Our car was very tight in the center making it extremely loose off," she explained. "We tested the week before and got the car better from the first race but we believe we ended up with a bad set of tires on Friday night." Even though Renshaw had to battle her car as well as the field, she still said, "All in all it was a fun night."

Renshaw will have another opportunity to have some fun on Sunday, July 22nd as the NASCAR Late Models return to the track for a 75-lap shootout. The NASCAR Late Models will run before the NASCAR Busch East Series race.

For ticketing information, please visit "I really need to thank the team for all their hard work this weekend," said Renshaw. "We just wish we were able to bring home the victory for I think it's only a matter of time before we race our way into Victory Lane but I just wish it would have happened this weekend." Renshaw still has aspirations of returning to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series or NASCAR Busch Series.
