Xfinity Series

By David Morgan, Associate Editor TALLADEGA, Ala. – In the first NASCAR Xfinity Series restrictor plate race of the season at Daytona, the end result was a lackluster race as drivers elected to run around single file lap after lap instead of the normal high-intensity racing we normally see at those type of tracks. Heading into Saturday’s Moneylion 300 at Talladega Superspeedway, which is one of four Dash4Cash races on the 2019 schedule, the all-Xfinity Series regular field will have plenty of incentive to put on a more entertaining race.Read More
