By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Noah Gragson has led plenty of laps at Homestead-Miami Speedway with three Top-10 finishes in his four starts before this weekend.

The 23-year-old Las Vegas native led a dominating 127 of the 200 laps – at one point his No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevy was out front by more than 9-seconds. Ultimately it tookRead More
By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service LAS VEGAS, Nev. —  Josh Berry’s resume would indicate he’s a top-shelf short track racer, but the JR Motorsports driver may need to expand that profile. Berry’s No. 8 JR Motorsports Chevrolet led a commanding 65 laps en route to the win in the Alsco Uniforms 302 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday – his second victory in the last three races on the high-banked 1.5-miler.

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service CONCORD, N.C.—When Josh Berry crossed the finish line at Charlotte Motor Speedway—giving JR Motorsports its first NASCAR Xfinity Series win at its home track—second-place Ty Gibbs was just reaching the 200-foot-long Speedway TV screen television on the backstretch. After JRM teammate Justin Allgaier scraped the outside wall for the second time and had to pit during the final 81-lap green-flag run, Berry won Saturday’s Alsco Uniforms 300 by an astonishing 18.039 seconds over Gibbs. But the race wasn’t that lopsided before Allgaier had toRead More

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service Californian Cole Custer was the only former Auto Club Speedway winner in the field for Saturday’s Production Alliance 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race in Fontana, Calif.

It was a long day’s journey into night, a race that started in mid-afternoon and unexpectedly ended under the lights inRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service In a wild two-lap shootout that ended prematurely with a multicar wreck near the entrance to Turn 3, 19-year-old Canadian Raphael Lessard earned his first NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series victory in Saturday’s Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Talladega Superspeedway. Lessard had nosed ahead of runner-up Trevor Bayne while Stewart Friesen’s Chevrolet spun into the outside backstretch wall on the final lap, causing the caution that froze the field. The yellow made a winner of Lessard, but what was euphoria for one KyleRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Thursday’s UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway kicked off the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series playoffs, but it looked more like a “crashing the party vibe” than a night controlled by the 10 title contenders. When you look at the top-five finishers, only an unsponsored Brett Moffitt represented the playoff competitors with a runner-up result. Otherwise, it was a 200-lap race that’ll go down as a night of guys making strong statements with Sam Mayer winning in just his seventh Truck Series start. BehindRead More
