Matt Hagan and his Aaron’s/Mopar Dodge Charger team have struggled all season, winning only four rounds of racing in the first 13 events. His slump started to turn around at the race in Sonoma, Calif., where Hagan earned his first final-round appearance of 2012. He then repeated that effort at the next race in Seattle, moving from 13th in the standings to 11th, 62 points out of the 10th and final spot in the Countdown.
