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. Fittingly enough, what else did you expect fromRead More

When title contender Chase Briscoe spun onRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Halloween madness beckoned the penultimate Xfinity Series race at Martinsville Speedway with three Championship 4 spots on the line. When the dust and even mud settled, the main story was non-playoff driver Harrison Burton scoring the victory in Saturday’s Draft Top 250, keeping his hot streak going at a track that’s meant so much to him. That’s because Martinsville is the site of his father Jeff Burton’s maiden NXS win 30 years ago where he became the youngest winner at the track until his sonRead More
By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service A.J. Allmendinger prevailed in a hard-fought NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoff race that ended in overtime on the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL Saturday evening.

It marked the second win of the season for Allmendinger in the No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet and his secondRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer How ’bout that Roval race boys and girls? It was one of those days where rain wasn’t such a burden for NASCAR because the Xfinity Series ran under wet conditions during Saturday’s Drive for the Cure 250 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL. To no one’s surprise, it brought tremendous unpredictability and in the end, A.J. 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 Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service Justin Haley led two laps in Saturday’s Ag-Pro 300, but one of them was the one that counted.

The Xfinity Series all-time winningest driver, reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch finished third, 2.5-seconds behind Allgaier.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer What can be best described as another classic Xfinity Series duel at Darlington Raceway, both Ross Chastain and Denny Hamlin put on an absolute barn burner. In the closing laps of Saturday’s Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200, two aggressive drivers gave it their all. Neither were giving up an inch if it meant a win was on the horizon as both were hungry for redemption in “The Lady in Black.” Hamlin haven’t won an Xfinity race since Darlington in 2017 as a result of him beingRead More
