By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor It’s penalty day again in the world of NASCAR and Wednesday was a doozy, with the sanctioning body handing down a wide range of penalties to teams across all three national series.

It’s one of my favorite tracks we visit, and one I’ve always seemed to do well at in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Dover is just so different from anywhere else we go to on the schedule.Read More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor Over the past month, there’s been something different about the NASCAR Xfinity Series – no Cup Series drivers in the field. Has anyone truly missed them? Because I sure haven’t. Without the Cup drivers in the field, we’ve truly gotten to see the Xfinity Series reaching toward its true potential on track.

By: NASCAR Wire Service DOVER, Del. – Justin Allgaier survived a breathtaking last-gasp effort from JR Motorsports teammate Elliott Sadler to win Saturday’s OneMain Financial 200 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Dover International Speedway.

Ahead of Allgaier, the lapped car of Joe Nemechek entered the corner low and drifted up the track, forcing Allgair to brake and run the middle lane at the cost of considerable momentum. Sadler saw the opening andRead More
