By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer They say there can be miracles if you believe, and that is exactly what happened for Jeremy Clements and his family-owned Jeremy Clements Racing (JCR) at Road America. With the freshest tires, Clements sliced through the field in the final laps in route to his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series victory. Clements spent the final laps in his No. 51 Chevrolet Camaro chasing down JGR’s Matt Tifft. As the duo exited the final corner coming to the white flag, they made contact. Both drivers’Read More

Courtesy of NASCAR Wire Service NEWTON, Iowa — Last week, a blink-of-an-eye moment weighed heavily on William Byron. Saturday, the driver of the No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet lifted his head and shouted out a pent-up yelp that formed the suitable soundtrack the rookie’s first career NASCAR XFINITY Series victory. “I feel it all kind of comes around in racing and last week we were so close,” said Byron, who finished a mere .012 seconds behind Joe Gibbs Racing veteran Denny Hamlin last Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. “You’ve gotRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer Short tracks and tempers go together in auto racing. The NASCAR Xfinity Series Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway is a classic example of how true this statement can be. Today, tempers flared between Ross Chastain and Jeremy Clements. Chastain started his No. 4 GK Services Chevrolet Camaro in 11th and Clements started his No. 51 Chevrolet Camaro in 15th, with both drivers running close to each other throughout the first two stages. After Chastain made contact with Clements several times, he wouldRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor FORT WORTH, Texas — NASCAR has made a move to try to even the playing field in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Starting in 2017, Sprint Cup Series drivers – with over five years experience — will be limited to participating in just 10 NXS races per season. Cup drivers also wont be allowed to participate in the four Dash4Cash races, or in any of the championship Chase events. It’s a nice step, and many are applauding the sanctioning body for making this change, but there’sRead More

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service TALLADEGA, Ala. – On his 41st birthday, Elliott Sadler got an unexpected present. When Saturday’s Sparks Energy 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race ended under caution in overtime with the front-runners just short of the finish line, Sadler had the lead, after Joey Logano’s last-ditch attempt to block Sadler in the tri-oval ended with Logano’s No. 22 Team Penske Ford plowing nose-first into the outside wall. Brennan Poole got to the finish line first and thought he had won the race, until NASCAR officials reviewedRead More
