By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service DOVER, Del. – Christopher Bell won the battle that counted by a few feet—and that small victory launched him to his third NASCAR Xfinity Series triumph of the season in the Allied Steel Buildings 200 at Dover International Speedway. Bell’s No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota was first off pit road after a Lap 155 stop under caution, narrowly beating Cole Custer, who had led the first 155 laps of Saturday’s race.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer For 155 laps in Saturday’s Allied Steel Buildings 200 at Dover International Speedway, it was Cole Custer’s race to lose as he led the field wire-to-wire to that point. Then a caution and a slower pit stop proved costly for the driver of the No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang and ultimately settled for a respectable, but agonizing fourth-place finish. After a poor finish due to a multi-car crash at Talladega last Saturday, Custer came into the “Monster Mile” with a lot to prove, sittingRead More

It wasn’t meant to be and had to settle for fifth during Saturday’s MoneyLion 300. The race title happened to be Cindric’s primary sponsor for his No. 12 Ford Mustang. “To comeRead More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer “Two Doors Down” was probably Tyler Reddick’s main tune out of the Dolly Parton discography, as it was nothing but the number two that truly defined his afternoon in Saturday’s Alsco 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway as his No. 2 pink and white Dolly Parton Chevrolet Camaro started and finished all three stages in second, even ended up second in laps led and in the Dash4Cash. “It’s funny because we were two in Stage 1, two in Stage 2, and we finished second in Stage 3,”Read More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer It was quite the captivating weekend for Austin Dillon, who not only led the field to the green, but also battle an illness throughout Sunday’s Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, finishing a valiant 10th.
