AJ Allmendinger finished fourth and clinched the lucrative $100,000 Dash 4 Cash prize, outrunning three other drivers — fifth-place Noah Gragson, teammate Justin Haley in sixth and 31st-place Daniel Hemric — eligible for the bonus. Gragson had claimed the six-figure payday the previous weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Gragson experienced heartache for the second straight day, leading the most laps both times but watching his victory hopes thwarted by a late-race caution flag. Sunday, he was in front for a race-high 81 laps.
Harrison Burton, who won Saturday’s front end of the Xfinity weekend doubleheader, rallied to finish eighth in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota after stopping for service with a flat tire with seven laps remaining.
The Xfinity Series’ next race is the Unhinged 300, scheduled Saturday (5:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, Sirius) at Talladega Superspeedway. It will mark the third of four races in the 2020 Dash 4 Cash program.
