XFINITY Series Results: Allgaier Back in Victory Lane at Phoenix

Justin AllgaierAVONDALE, Ariz. – Justin Allgaier ended an 80-race winless streak on Saturday, going to Victory Lane in the DC Solar 200 at Phoenix Raceway and winning the first leg of the NASCAR XFINITY Series Dash4Cash.
It’s the fourth win for Allgaier in 210 career XFINITY Series starts and first since moving back to the series full-time in 2016 after a two-year full-time stint in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
Allgaier was able to hold off the field on multiple restarts over the final quarter of the 200-lap event after crew chief Jason Burdett used a four-tire pit strategy when other teams took two fresh tires after a caution flew with 43 laps to go.
“It’s been a couple years since I’ve been able to get to Victory Lane and it’s been challenging,” Allgaier said. “To come out this year, fourth race in, to get a victory, there are so many things that are cool about this moment. Erik and I had a great battle at the end of the race. It’s a fun place to race.” READ FULL STORY

BREAKING NEWS: Long-Lost ’68 Ford Mustang Bullitt Stunt Car Found in Mexico


The legend has been the same for decades: There were two 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastbacks provided by the Blue Oval as stunt cars in 1968’s Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen. Both were Highland Green with aftermarket Cragar wheels, equipped with howling S-code 390s and four-speeds — though sometimes a 289 was claimed to be the nimble jump car’s motivator — and both were modified by Hollywood car builder Max Balchowsky to fit the interior movie lighting and cameras while also upgrading the chassis and suspension for the those famous jumps through the streets of San Francisco.

Kyle Busch’s race-winning car failed post-race inspection after the XFINITY Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.    Busch led two times for 26 laps en route to the win in Saturday’s Rinnai 250, but his Toyota was found to be too low on both the right and left front.     Busch competed in the Camping World Truck Series race following the XFINITY race and finished 26th after a tire went down. Christopher Bell won the race driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports and Busch was asked about his XFINITY car failing inspection in the media center.    “I didn’t feel anything happen or anything over the course of the day,” Busch said when he was asked if he felt anything in the race that would cause the car to fail inspection. “I don’t remember what kind of adjustments we were making. I know we were going track bar down and wedge out so that should actually kind of lifted the front a little bit maybe, but I don’t know how low it was or anything like that.”

Kurt Busch Wins Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Kurt Busch made a last lap pass to score his first career Daytona 500 victory.  Busch got around Kyle Larson, who ran out of gas, in a mad dash to the checkered flag to notch his initial win in “The Great American Race.”   He led only one lap to win the race and give Stewart-Haas Racing its first victory as the organization moved from Chevrolet to Ford this year.
It was Busch’s 29th career win.   “My mirror fell off with 30 laps to go,” Busch said. “I said that’s an omen, let’s throw caution to the wind.”   “To look at Gene Haas and see him smile, it makes it all worth it,” said Tony Stewart. A crazy race for sure, it was crazy to watch it from the pit box. If I knew this is what it took to win the Daytona 500, I would have retired a long time ago.”   Ryan Blaney finished second with AJ Allmendinger, Aric Almirola and Paul Menard rounding out the top five    “It was a solid race,” Blaney said. “It was such a fast Ford. For (it) to be a backup car, that really means a lot for Ford and Motorcraft. Not what we wanted but a pretty good run and start to the season.”   Joey Logano, Kasey Kahne, Michael Waltrip, Matt DiBenedetto and Trevor Bayne completed the first 10 finishers. READ FULL STORY
