By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service Chase Briscoe led a dominating 159 of 200 laps to win his record ninth NASCAR Xfinity Series race Saturday night, the Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway. And while the 25-year old Hoosier turned in a dominating effort, the race – a crucial chapter in the 2020 Playoff run – was dramatic in multiple ways. Briscoe’s No. 98 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford ultimately edged Daniel Hemric’s No. 8 JR Motorsports Chevrolet by 1.199-seconds to earn the win – his nine-trophy single season tally the mostRead More

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent Late-race strategy for Michael Annett and crew chief Travis Mack almost earned the JR Motorsports duo another NASCAR Xfinity Series victory.

While the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoff Grid driver slipped backward, the strategy worked. A caution 16 laps later put Annett on fresh tires. On the ensuing restart, Annett got caught in the middle with JustinRead More

The 27-year-old driver earned his second consecutive pole position for Saturday afternoon’s Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway and dominated the majority of the race in the No. 21 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet. But once again,Read More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer In spite of surviving the mayhem, Tyler Reddick will leave Kansas Speedway a bit shameful after being denied a possible top-three finish in Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300.
