DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Justin Allgaier put JR Motorsports in victory lane for the third consecutive week in the Xfinity Series by winning at Darlington Raceway.
Allgaier ended a 34-race winless streak when he passed AJ Allmendinger to start a two-lap sprint following a caution and cruised the final 2.7 miles to give team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. another victory in NASCAR’s second-tier feeder series.
Noah Gragson won two weeks ago at Talladega Superspeedway and Josh Berry won last week at Dover Motor Speedway.
Allgaier was a nonfactor at Talladega and a runner-up a week later.
This was Allgaier’s 17th career victory in the Xfinity Series but his first in a year. His last one also came at Darlington.
