Last year AJ Allmendinger failed in Indianapolis in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, this year he is getting his revenge. He now has three wins this season, one less than Ty Gibbs.
AJ Allmendinger is a monster on the road course, but he also has his flaws. Last year two errors in the first lap cost him dearly and probably the victory. This year, the Kaulig Racing driver didn’t leave it up to anyone to look for the checkered flag. He won his ninth road course victory, which is a record in the NASCAR second division.
There’s no better place to win. I love this place. I have to thank all of Kaulig Racing. (Alex) Bowman was very strong on the long runs. We had some brake issues, but the team got the job done. Now we can kiss the bricks.
Dominant on the last part of the race, AJ Allmendinger won with more than two seconds ahead of Alex Bowman. Justin Allgaier takes third place, nearly 17 seconds away! Rounding out the top 5 are Ross Chastain and Chase Briscoe. RIley Herbst, Sam Mayer, Ty Gibbs, Austin Hill and Noah Gragson are in the top 10.
Turn 1 will have been the place of all the hot actions of the race, in particular during the various restarts, with passages of three, even four abreast.
This Sunday, AJ Allmendinger will try to retain his title in the Verizon 200 in the NASCAR Cup Series.
The next NASCAR XFINITY Series race will take place next Saturday at Michigan International Speedway.
