On his approach to winning Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway, Justin Allgaier essentially controlled the whole race from beginning to finish.
Early on, Allgaier moved to the front, dominated the first two stages, took the lead on 134 of the 188 circuits, and handily defeated Trevor Bayne by 4.513 seconds to win.
Many strong contenders opted to delay their last pit stop for tyres and fuel until late in the last stage, but Allgaier was one of those who pitted under caution as soon as his No. 7 JR Motorsports squad was inside its pit window.
On fresh tyres, he overtook former leader A.J. Allmendinger to retake the lead on lap 149 and went on to control the race’s last 40 caution-free circuits.
The victory marks Allgaier’s second of the year and 19th overall.
“What a heck of a race,” he said. “I’ve been coming to this track a long time and I’ve been trying to get to Victory Lane so bad and just haven’t been able to do it.
“Today was for the dirt racers, though. It was slick. It was hot. Just sliding around. … That was the best car I’ve ever had. This is just so much fun right now.”
Sam Mayer completed the top five, followed by Ty Gibbs in fourth place and Riley Herbst in third.
“Overall a good day,” Herbst said. “Had a shot there to win but (Allgaier) was good, congratulations to that team.”
Ryan Preece, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Austin Hill, Ryan Sieg, and Brett Moffitt made up the final ten.
Allmendinger placed 16th after having led 48 laps before stopping under green for fuel with just under 20 circuits remaining.
