Xfinity Series

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The final set of races have been confirmed by NASCAR Thursday with several changes to the playoffs and some series returning to race tracks once more or the first time in a long while.

The quest for the championship will begin at Darlington Raceway (Sept. 6) and will wrapRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Both DGM Racing’s Alex Labbe and its owner Mario Gosselin have been reprimanded by NASCAR Tuesday, not only the team were fined $50,000, they’ve also been handed L2-level penalties. Labbe and the No. 90 Xfinity Series team have been docked 75 driver and owner points following a test session at the Daytona International Speedway road course Saturday. The sanctioning body stopped them because it violated the private testing policy. Here’s a photo of Labbe testing earlier today.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Joe Gibbs Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program are certainly glad July is over with all three of its drivers gaining positive grounds in Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 250 at Kansas Speedway. Brandon Jones led the way with the strongest two laps of his racing career as he went from seventh on the second overtime restart to pass Austin Cindric on the last lap for his third career Xfinity Series win and the second straight at the 1.5-mile circuit. Jones described his road to victory as a groupRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Austin Cindric had the strongest car of the day during Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 250 at Kansas Speedway, winning both stages and appeared he was on his way of being the first driver since Sam Ard in 1983 to win four straight NASCAR Xfinity Series races. That would change in the closing laps as an ever determined Harrison Burton was gaining a lot of ground on Cindric following the last set of scheduled green flag stops. Cindric, who led a race-high 131 laps, now had to playRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service On the final lap of overtime in Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 250, Brandon Jones stole a victory and a piece of history from Austin Cindric. Restarting from seventh place in the second overtime attempt, Jones charged forward and wrested the lead from Cindric, who was less than one lap away from tying Sam Ard’s NASCAR Xfinity Series record of four straight victories, a feat Ard accomplished in 1983. After Cindric led Lap 174, the seventh circuit of overtime, Jones got a run underneath the No.Read More

By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service Austin Cindric collected his third consecutive NASCAR Xfinity Series win Saturday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway after Kyle Busch’s No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota failed post-race inspection – the left rear on his car ruled too low. The Team Penske driver Cindric, who swept a doubleheader weekend at Kentucky Speedway last week, originally finished less than a second behind Busch, but the finishing order was corrected to show Cindric the winner and Xfinity Series championship leader Chase Briscoe the race runner-up. Justin Allgaier,Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Some things remain the same at Kentucky Speedway. Not because Austin Cindric swept the doubleheader, but another sweep occurred as Anthony Alfredo just nabbed a sixth place finish on the last lap of Friday’s Alsco 300. The Richard Childress Racing rookie’s result had to be earned following a mistake on the final stop that knocked him out of contention of a possible career night which saw him collect 16 stage points due to a fourth and a second-place run during the first two stages. The 10thRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor After the checkered flag flew following Friday night’s Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway, Harrison Burton was determined to give Noah Gragson a piece of his mind. Social distancing be damned. The two drivers were duking it out in the closing laps of the NASCAR Xfinity Series race, both looking to bring home a top-10 finish for their teams when Gragson washed up the track in Turn 4, sending them both sliding into the wall and losing a ton of track position in the process. While GragsonRead More
