Race Rundown

Noah Gragson takes the Xfinity win at Bristol: Noah Gragson held off Chase Briscoe after a bump-and-run with his JR Motorsports teammate Justin Allgaier to earn his second victory of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season in a frantic finish to the Cheddar’s 300 presented by Alsco at Bristol Motor Speedway. Gragson’s No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet edged Briscoe’s No. 98 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford by a mere 0.328-second for Gragson’s second victory of the season, matching his winning work in the Daytona season-opener. And his victory Monday night on the high-banked Bristol half-miler was equally as dramatic as the three-way finish he prevailed in at the big speedway this past February.[Read More](6-1-2020)

#9-Noah Gragson won the Cheddar’s 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. The win is his second of the year, first win at Bristol and second career win.
#98-Chase Briscoe finished 2nd followed by #19-Brandon Jones, #20-Harrison Burton, #21-Myatt Snider, #8-Daniel Hemric, #68-Brandon Brown, #51-Jeremy Clements, #92-Josh Williams and #16-AJ Allmendinger.
Pole sitter #20-Harrison Burton finished fourth.
#7-Justin Allgaier dominated the majority of the race, leading 156 of the scheduled 300. Following a restart on lap 193, Allgaier and JR Motorsports teammate #9-Gragson got together after Gragson dove to the inside for the lead. Allgaier’s car got into the outside wall before sliding down track and into the inside wall, ending his night prematurely. Gragson was able to hold on for the win as the field saw overtime.
The race was the qualifier for this year’s first Dash 4 Cash race at Atlanta.  The drivers competing for the Dash 4 Cash will be Gragson, Briscoe, Jones and Burton.
Stage 1 was won by #9-Gragson. Stage 2 was won by #7-Allgaier.
There were 10 lead changes among 6 drivers and 12 cautions for 85 yellow flag laps.
The average speed of the race was: 69.687mph.
