By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Ford only had two guys competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with one of them hoisting series championship. It wasn’t Chase Briscoe, but it was Austin Cindric who exited Phoenix Raceway with a championship. Cindric had to earn that sixth win though as an overtime restart bunched the field up and when the dust finally settled, he beat Noah Gragson to capture Saturday’s Desert Diamond Casino West Valley 200 and another auto racing title for Team Penske.

Saturday Xfinity Championship Weekend Notebook

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service Justin Allgaier leaves it all on the track but falls short in title battle Justin Allgaier and crew chief Jason Burdett tried everything. Under caution on Lap 172 of 200 in Saturday’s Desert Diamond Casino West Valley 200 at Phoenix Raceway, Burdett called Allgaier to pit road for his last set of sticker tires. Even on fresh rubber, Allgaier couldn’t catch race leader Austin Cindric, as the drivers battled for position and the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship. When title contender Chase Briscoe spun onRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Kansas Speedway’s wild and wicked nature struck again. This time in the Xfinity Series as Chase Briscoe continues being the man with his ninth win of the year.

Underdog driver Josh Williams getting a career-best sixth, and of course the 500+ mile runners of Truck Series regulars Austin Hill and BrettRead More

Allmendinger reigned supreme and will go down into the record books as the sport’s “Rainmaster.” "I don't know what we just witnessed."@AJDinger on racing, and winning, on @CLTMotorSpdwy's ROVALRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Chase Briscoe has accomplished “The Shot” in Saturday’s Alsco 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Not only Briscoe got the job done by leading a race-high 164 of 200 laps, he did it by sweeping all three stages for the first time ever.

It didn’t meant the action was lacking as Friday’s Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway saw several compelling moments all across the leaderboard. Some even saying it’s like the Bristol of old with several bump and runs, take no prisoners battles for valuable track position. In the end, it was the FordRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer It’s been one of those days where the latest twists and turns impact the future landscape in both the NTT IndyCar Series and NASCAR. One former champion is making its return when it didn’t have to come down that way to be honest. Another is perhaps the right move all things considered and last but certainly not least, further escalates the whole Denny Hamlin ownership rumor. With that, let’s dive into the three biggest news from Tuesday and how I feel about each those decisions. BourdaisRead More

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service After winning Saturday’s Drydene 200 at Dover International Speedway, Justin Allgaier offered an unexpected thank-you to AJ Allmendinger. A week earlier at the Daytona Road Course, Allmendinger wheel-hopped into Allgaier’s No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet and knocked him out of a top-five finish. Allgaier expressed his displeasure after the race and ignited a firestorm on social media from those who thought Allmendinger’s miscue was purely accidental. The criticism lit a bonfire of determination in Allgaier, who turned a star-crossed season around with his firstRead More
