By David Morgan, Associate Editor After Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Darlington Raceway, it looked as if Noah Gragson would be walking away with another $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus following his fourth-place finish in the Steakhouse Elite 200. That is, until his No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet failed post-race inspection, leading to a disqualification and ruining his streak of winning the first three Dash4Cash bonuses.

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service Myatt Snider got his first NASCAR Xfinity Series victory. Noah Gragson got another heartache at Homestead.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – It was past midnight at the Daytona International Speedway when a late-race carnage beckoned the second race of the Bluegreen Duels.
