By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent After capitalizing on the misfortunes of others, Chris Buescher earned a top-10 finish in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Under the final caution of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, Buescher’s No. 37 Scott Comfort Plus Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was one of several taking the wave around. He was inside the top-10 prior to a race-changing incident on pit road involving his JTG-DaughertyRead More

He lined up sixth on the final restart of the night, with six laps to go, after a brief delay for rain. In the final six laps, theRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent The first NASCAR Xfinity Series top-10 finish for Jeffrey Earnhardt was a decade in the making. Earnhardt had a chance at a better finish in the Rinnai due to a late-race caution, but the worn racing surface of Atlanta Motor Speedway prevented him from capitalizing. Earnhardt’s No. 18 Extreme Concepts / iK9 Toyota Supra had been running inside the top-five when John Hunter Nemechek spun off turn two with seven laps to go. He exited pit road second on and restarted on the outside onRead More

The last time the Xfinity Series had back to back first-time winners was 2017 with Alex Bowman and Christopher Bell.

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent In the 2019 Daytona 500 life imitated art not once, but twice, as Ryan Preece avoided wrecks in a manner very reminiscent to the 1990s movie ‘Days of Thunder.’ The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year survived the carnage to finish eighth. With six laps to go in the scheduled distance at Daytona International Speedway, contact between Kevin Harvick, Kyle Larson, and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. sparked the second ‘big one’ of the night. Preece’s No. 47 Kroger.com Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 wasRead More
