During the whole race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Berry and Allgaier hasn’t seemed to get too far apart. After a last round of green-flag pit stops, Allgaier took a lead on Lap 163 of 200.

Berry had got up to Allgaier by Lap 176, and the pair raced side by side and traded crossover manoeuvres before Berry recaptured the lead on Lap 178 as Allgaier crashed.

On Lap 186, Allgaier hit the wall again, and this time was unable to pit under green for a flat tyre, allowing Berry to win by 18.039 seconds over Ty Gibbs.

“I’m accomplishing things I never thought I could do,” Berry remarked over his radio after collecting the checkered flag. Thank you all so much. I’m not going to perform a burnout because you don’t wreck a car like this.”

Berry’s victory was his 2nd of the season and his fourth of his profession. Despite its other victories in the series, this was JRM’s first win in Charlotte.

“This car was so good. We’ve been getting better every week. I think the sky’s the limit,” Berry said. “That was a battle with Justin – it always is with us. I don’t know, we always seem to run good at the same places and always have to race each other.

“But he slipped up in (Turn) 1 and I got loose, too, and it all worked out.”

After beginning on pole, JRM driver Sam Mayer placed third, Noah Gragson fourth, and Ryan Preece fifth.

Allgaier finished seventh after recovering from a late pit stop.

“At the beginning of the race, I thought we were going to battle for the win. To get three of our four JR Motorsports cars in Victory Lane (this season) is huge,” he said. “Just battling Josh, he got really close to the left rear getting into (Turn) 1 and just got me loose.”
