Race Rundown

Briscoe secures Championship 4 spot with Xfinity win at Kansas: Chase Briscoe led a dominating 159 of 200 laps to win his record ninth NASCAR Xfinity Series race Saturday night, the Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway. And while the 25-year old Hoosier turned in a dominating effort, the race – a crucial chapter in the 2020 Playoff run – was dramatic in multiple ways. Briscoe’s No. 98 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford ultimately edged Daniel Hemric’s No. 8 JR Motorsports Chevrolet by 1.199-seconds to earn the win – his nine-trophy single season tally the most ever by an Xfinity Series regular. Just as importantly, the victory gives Briscoe an automatic position in the Championship 4 round to decide the season title on Nov. 7 at Phoenix Raceway.

There was a large wreck with 28 laps remaining that ended with #21-Alfredo’s car upside down.  The race had to be red flagged to get the car upright and get him out.
