Eddie MacDonald made his one and only start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July. He started 41st and finished 37th in the No. 32 Frank Stoddard ride.

MacDonald now has two Cup races on his resume—both of which came at New Hampshire, and both of which ended in the mid-30s. That makes him more marketable to future owners of modestly funded cars.
