Bonsignore Making His Move
By Jason Cunningham, NASCAR
July 14, 2015 - 11:55am

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A quarter of the way into the 2015 schedule it looked like a lost season for Justin Bonsignore, but fortunes can turn quickly.

A championship contender in 2014, expectations were high for Bonsignore entering this season, but things went south quickly. Due to a variety of circumstances, including a pair of accident DNFs, he had an average finish of 25th through the first four races on the schedule and ranked 25th in points.

In a 15-race schedule, a deficit like that is challenging to overcome, but compiling podium finishes sure helps.
