    But we still have to work on our cars. The qual setups have absolutely sucked. We are a better team than this.

    Don't know who's had worse luck this season - you or Ryan. Still some time to knock out a few solid finishes before season's end.

    Here's how the points shake out after today's event:

    Tim Kunkel's win locks him in, while Keith Batson's poor run tonight locks him out.

    After points adjustments, here are the final standings after race 14:

    1. Anthony Curtain (@AntCurtain ) will enter the Chase as your top seed, holding a one-point advantage over Wes Slates thanks to two stage wins this season. Look for him to make a lot of noise next week at Sonoma, and potentially punch his ticket to round 2 with another win [DAYTONA RC, LIME ROCK PARK]
    2. Wes Slates (@wslates ) is the only driver to match Curtain in wins so far this season, and will start with a 9 point advantage over 3rd. One stage win. [DAYTONA, WATKINS GLEN]
    3. Jacob Craigo (@jacobc62 ) has had by far the best Short Track program this season - now he just needs Lady Luck on his side. Two stage wins. [MARTINSVILLE]
    4. Kyle Missimer (@Chevellion ) has matched Slates in top 5s and top 10s this season, but has seen the most DNFs for himself in a season this year. One race win, and one stage win. [OLD SPICE]
    5. DJ Harris (@Tetronix ) One race win, and one stage win. [ORP]
    6. Matt O'Reilly (@MattyO ) has been near (or at) the top of the table for most of the season. One race win. [OUTWARD]
    7. Dakota Caudill (@KnightHoarder ) One race win. [CHARLOTTE]
    8. Joe Towianski (@Tim2488 - help me out here haha) One race win. [COCA-COLA]
    9. Tim Kunkel (@Tim2488) One race win. [RICHMOND]
    10. Cody Llamas (@XxTeam48LowesXx ) One race win. [INDIANAPOLIS]
    11. Noah Joyce (@nj9703 ) One race win. [AUTO CLUB]
    12. John Hooper, Sr (@canadienhits ) Top non-winning driver in points.
    13. Darren Ingram (@Darren Ingram ) 2nd driver to qualify on points.
    14. JJ Jordan (@JeffJordan ) 3rd driver to qualify on points.
    15. Zack Webster (@zaw24fan ) Final driver to qualify on points, based on Batson being below the top 30

    As the TV crew walks along the garage area looking for an interview from one of the many drivers that ended up crashing during the race, they happen upon rookie driver Will Anderson channeling his inner Tony Stewart by taking his helmet and tossing it as hard as he can towards the battered rear end of his car after chucking his HANS device back into the cockpit in disgust. With a loud bang, the Texaco-adorned helmet bounces off the trashed rear bumper and proceeds to bounce away in the darkness towards one of the parked haulers in the infield. The SRDSN reporter takes interest in Anderson after seeing the helmet toss and swoops in to conduct his interview:

    SRDSN Reporter: "Some rage and frustration being shown by rookie Anderson in the garage area after the checkered flag. He just tossed his helmet at his car shortly after tossing his HANS device back into the cockpit of his wrecked #81 Once Upon A Time In 2Fort Ford Fusion. William, do you have any words for what went on during the race and in regards to the big crash going down the backstretch into Turn 3 that pretty much ended your shot at your first-career win?"

    Will Anderson, #81 Once Upon A Time In 2Fort Ford Fusion: (puts on Texaco hat and lets out a deep, painful sigh) "Man...that was easily the best car that we have had all season. My crew worked their asses off getting our #81 Ford Fusion to handle in the corners and boy was this car an absolute blast to drive tonight. It had fantastic speed on the both the short and long runs, the handling was rock solid in the turns, and it had some great drive-off on the exit of both Turns 2 and 4. I want to thank my crew and everybody back at the shop for giving us a solid car that was competitive and had great speed.

    Not sure what happened there on the backstretch after we lost the lead and slid back into that hornet nest of traffic. All I know is that my spotter was telling me 'two-wide inside, hold your line' prior to getting spun out as we headed off towards Turn 3. It really sucked that after we made contact with the wall and came to a stop that I ended up clipping someone just seconds before my teammate (DesRoisers) ran out of room and ended up making pretty hard contact with our rear end. We didn't get too much damage from spinning around and snagging the wall, but the damage from the #23 hitting the rear end bent something in the rear end and it really messed up our night. I am not mad at my teammate for what happened there (he had nowhere to go and it wasn't his fault that we got back in that mess), just frustrated with losing our shot at the win.

    Just want to congratulate the #15 (@Tim2488) on pulling off the win tonight. They had a great car and raced us pretty clean out there prior to the crash that ended our shot for the win."

    SRDSN Reporter: "We witnessed you tossing your helmet at the car prior to the interview (short clip plays of Anderson tossing his helmet at the car) we are having right now. Was that due to getting crashed or missing out on that first-career win?"

    Anderson: "My frustration that you guys walked up on was more in regards to losing our shot to pull off what could have been my first-ever win in the SRD Cup Series than anything else. What happened on the backstretch was a racing deal (going three-wide is always a risk at Richmond) and we have just had some pretty bad luck so far this season. I don't blame anybody for what happened back there, but it was just frustrating to have such a competitive car and not get the result (Top-10 finish was our goal) that we were working so hard for. I apologize to my team, sponsors, and boss for my lack of control right there (helmet toss), but I just am really disappointed with how the night ended after such a promising start. We moved up through the pack, we led laps, and we mixed it up with the best of them on-track. We were once on the verge on making the Playoffs on points, but with all of these disappointing finishes (no fault of the team or anybody, just bad luck in general) starting to pile up for us recently, it has pretty much killed our chances for making it."

    SRDSN Reporter: "Thanks for the comments and hopefully you guys on the #81 team can get back on the right track before the season ends and pull off a surprise victory."

    Anderson: "Thanks. Just need some good luck for a change...it's the primary reason that we have been having some of these issues (crashes, mechanical failures) over the past few races and it just really sucks."

    Harris' statement after the race:

    "Well, too bad we couldn't get a top 10 finish, but hey - this whole #42 team and I will have to crack open some cold ones (I mean, a Pepsi is great for an underage driver too) after the interviews. Locked into the Chase, so we are in good shape!"

    Webster: JJ Jordan continues to show why he was an elite addition to the team. He'll be in championship contention for yet another year. Hate we couldn't get all three cars in, especially with the past success we've had with drivers in their first year, but Woodard had a solid regular season for us. We just couldn't get his car in a position to also make it in.

    We got two in the Chase, but they're both in on points. We have to step up our performance and be serious contenders for wins if we want to make it from the bottom two seeds to the championship race.

    Well, we made it in. We were sweating it after our qualifying attempt. We really didn't have a great Budweiser Camry today, but 14th got us in. Now the real work begins.

    A season of Ups & Downs culminates as Tim Kunkel brings the Hoonigan Racing B&T Chevrolet to a stop In Gatorade Victory Lane. He's wasting no time getting ready to celebrate...

    *Cheers, Gatorade, Coors Light all mix in the air as Kunkel pumps his fist in the air*

    Tim what a performance out there, did you ever think you'd get here this season?

    "Honestly, no. Our luck has been just terrible this season. There had been a lot of doubt going forward from about halfway into the season whether we could keep this team afloat. Tonight helps in a huge way, I can't thank this crew enough for what they've put up with all year for it to finally pay off. "

    Take us through the last few stages of the race.

    "Cautions man, cautions. I just had to keep my mind off the competition and ready for each restart. The car was just hooked up and took off right away. I can't thank Hoonigan, Coors, Avis Budget, Blackened & Chevy for their support"

    You're in the Chase, do you think this win could be a morale booster & catapult this team to your first ever SRD Cup title?

    "I want the fans to call me a dark horse pick to win, from nearly dead last in the standings 8 races in to chase bound, we want the cup"

    Tim Kunkel, your winner tonight at Richmond,back to you up in the booth.

    "Y-You too."

    I'm glad we survived and didn't wreck this weekend. As bad as our luck has been, to somehow finish 13th is just ridiculous.

    Let's not be the team that finishes last this year.
