Ty Gibbs won his fifth NASCAR Xfinity Series race of the season and his ninth in two years on Saturday at Michigan International Speedway.
The 19-year-old, grandson of team owner Joe Gibbs, led 54 of the 125 laps in his No. 54 Toyota.
« I’m having a lot of fun in this series, » Gibbs said. “I work as hard as I can to be the best I can be. I don’t really have any other hobbies. »
Justin Allgaier finished second, followed by Noah Gragson, who started in the lead position.
Gibbs will be sixth on the grid on Sunday in the NASCAR Cup series, replacing Kurt Busch, who has to miss a third straight race due to concussion symptoms.
AJ Allmendinger was aiming for his second straight Xfinity win this season and a second straight at Michigan. He led for seven laps before falling back to seventh. He is 19 points ahead of Allgaier in the standings.
