Allgaier sweeps Richmond weekend with win Saturday too

Justin Allgaier saw a more than 9-second lead evaporate when a late caution flag flew, but he pulled away again on a restart with 13 laps to go to complete a sweep of a NASCAR Xfinity series doubleheader weekend at Richmond Raceway on Saturday.

Allgaier, who lost the lead when he had trouble on a previous restart, had no such issues starting on the inside with Jeb Burton to his outside and Ross Chastain behind him. He quickly moved in front entering Turn One and pulled away in a dominant performance.

The victory was his third of the season.

Burton held on for second, followed by Chastain, Harrison Burton and Justin Haley.

The GMS cars were the class of the field behind Allgaier.

Austin Cindric wrapped up the regular season championship while two more spots were clinched in the playoffs. It’s down to Brandon Brown vs Jeremy Clements for the final spot. Brown leads Clements by 49 points heading to the regular season finale next Friday night at Bristol.
