AJ Allmendinger wins Xfinity race at rain-soaked Charlotte

  AJ Allmendinger wins Xfinity race at rain-soaked Charlotte CONCORD, N.C. — AJ Allmendinger splashed his way through a torrential rainstorm that turned Charlotte Motor Speedway into a slip-and-slide Saturday to win the Xfinity Series race on the hybrid road course-oval “Roval." Allmendinger won for the second time this season in 10 starts for Kaulig Racing. He's easily the most experienced NASCAR driver at both road course racing and driving in wet conditions — Allmendinger has a long career in multiple formulas, including sports cars and open-wheel, which both race in the rain. “I don't know what we just witnessed,” Allmendinger said. “I was complaining the whole race. That was miserable. Crazy.

A fight between Harrison Burton and Noah Gragson broke out during the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Kentucky. “What we did tonight was really impressive because we ran one setup last night and won the race and came with another setup and won the race again,” said Cindric, who started 15th.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Harrison Burton stormed past Noah Gragson in the final turn Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway to win the Xfinity Series race and deny Gragson a spot in the championship round.

Gragson was one turn away from earning an automatic berth into the title-deciding finale but instead had to settle for a second-place finish. Gragson entered the race last in the playoff rankings, 33 points below the cutline and needing a victory to advance.

Burton won for the third time this season in a Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing but was eliminated from title contention in the first round.

RELATED: Burton , Gragson fight after Kentucky race. An on-track incident initially sparked the drama. There weren’t any issues last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, where Burton placed fourth and Gragson was 30th. Burton thought he and Gragson raced around each other just fine.

“That's what we came to do, to be fast and to do what we did on that last lap was incredible,” Burton said.

It was another chapter between a pair of drivers who have had conflict this season, including a scuffle post-race at Kentucky in July in which punches were thrown.

Chase Briscoe is the only driver locked into the finale at Phoenix next month. The remaining slots will be decided in next week's elimination race at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.

“I felt like we had a fast car there and just frustrated at myself,” Gragson said. “Make or break your season right there, and just gave it away.”

Gragson remains 24 points below the cutline and his frustration was evident when he used profanity in a live NBC Sports Network interview.

Austin Cindric, a five-race winner this season, is second in the standings and followed by Justin Allgaier and Justin Haley.

If you think fights are reserved for contact sports, think again.

Brandon Jones, Ross Chastain, Gragson and Ryan Sieg are all in danger of elimination at Martinsville.

Jones and Allgaier crashed out of the race in a late incident with Chastain, and Allgaier took aim at Chastain's driving after.

“He just decides to hang a left because he's aggravated and he wrecks the whole field,” Allgaier said. “Ross is pretty two-faced and says a lot of things outside the race car and then drives like this on the race track sometimes and it's pretty disappointing.”

Chastain, who is being promoted to Cup next season with Chip Ganassi Racing, took full responsibility for the crash.

“It's my fault," he said. “I don't deserve what I have in front of me. I don't deserve to drive this racecar. To make those mistakes — absolutely unacceptable.”
