Ryan Blaney won the NASCAR XFINITY Series 36th Annual Hisense 4K TV 300 in his No.12 Snap-On Ford Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
On the final restart, Blaney passed the No. 41 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford of Kevin Harvick on the bottom to win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Harvick won the opening stage of the race and Blaney won the second Stage of the race and led for a total of 107 laps.
Blaney “Our car was so good in the middle. I ventured up there a little bit at the end of that second segment. We were out front and we were able to kind of play around, but I was never really confident in it. I was kind of loose, so I really didn’t want to go up there and make a mistake and smack the fence, so it was just my car was running so good in the middle in one and two I just stuck there, so I don’t have a huge feel for what that stuff is.”
This is Blaney’s second victory in the NASCAR Nationwide Series of the 2017 season and the fifth win of his career in 56 series starts.
Pole sitter Justin Allgaier, driver of the No.7 Breyers Chevrolet, led for seven laps and ended up finishing twelfth.
Austin Dillon, Christopher Bell and Denny Hamlin round out your top five finishers. Cole Custer the driver of the No.00 Haas Automation Ford was the highest finishing rookie..
Elliott Sadler stays the NASCAR XFINITY Series points leader but only by six points over Justin Allgaier. Sadler wrecked on Lap 180 and only earned two points for the day.
The NASCAR XFINITY series heads to Dover International Speedway for the OneMain Financial 200 on Saturday June 3rd at 1:00 pm on FS1.
