TALLADEGA, Ala. - In a car rebuilt after it was in a multi-car crash in the season-opener at Daytona, ML Motorsports driver Mark Green finished fifth in Saturday's Aaron's 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

The fifth-place finish was the best finish in the short NASCAR career of the Warsaw, Indiana-based ML Motorsports team, topping the team's previous best finish of 19th at Gateway with Green behind the wheel during the 2007 season.

Tony Stewart, who held off a last-lap charge from Dale Earnhardt Jr., won Saturday's race, followed the top five by David Stremme, Bobby Hamilton Jr., Jason Leffler and Green. Earnhardt finished sixth.

In giving ML Motorsports its best-ever finish, Green also moved up nine spots in the 2008 driver standings, and now stands 40th after competing in five of 10 races so far this season.

Green and Team 70's previous best finish this season was a 24th-place effort at Bristol. Green and ML Motorsports have also competed in races this season at Daytona (41st), Nashville (26th) and Texas (28th).

In the race at Daytona, Green was caught up in a multi-car crash in both practice and the race. The northern Indiana-based team had to re-clip and rebuild their primary restrictor-plate car, and judging by Saturday's finish, the team has plenty of reasons to be proud of their efforts.

Green and Team 70 will now turn their attention to a short track race, as they will look to make their sixth start of the season Friday at Richmond International Raceway.
