With qualifying for the Centurion Boats at the Glen from Watkins Glen International rained out, Boris Said did not qualify and thus missed the race in his No. 60 No Fear/7-11 Slurpee Ford Fusion, as a result of not being in the top 35 in owner points.
But, a deal was reached with Petty Enterprises No. 45 Dodge for Said to drive the car in place of Kyle Petty, who was originally scheduled to drive. Said had to secure permission from Ford, which he did.
He will start 40th.
Said was also approached by Yates Racing to drive the No. 28 in place of Travis Kvapil.
