Race Rundown

AJ Allmendinger earns first career NASCAR oval victory: NASCAR veteran AJ Allmendinger bested a field of the sport’s best young talents leading the final 37 laps of Saturday afternoon’s Xfinity Series EchoPark 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Making the run more impressive, Allmendinger rallied from a 30th place starting position. Noah Gragson, last week’s Bristol race winner, finished runner-up by 1.858-seconds but it was still good enough to earn the Dash 4 Cash $100,000 money bonus given by series sponsor Xfinity. Next week Allmendinger, Gragson, Justin Haley and Daniel Hemric – the second through fourth place finishers – will be eligible for the Dash 4 Cash prize money.[Read More](6-6-2020)
