It was a wild NASCAR Xfinity Series Indiana 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday. But when all the dust settled, it was Kyle Busch who was able to hold off Justin Allgaier for his fourth NXS victory of the season.
This marks Busch’s 96th-career victory in the Series.
For Allgaier, it was another missed opportunity as he is still win less in 2019. However, Allgaier did collect another Playoff Point as he took his fifth Stage Win of the season in Stage 2.
Noah Gragson held on for a podium finish in third and Jeb Burton continued to open eyes with a fourth place effort.
Justin Haley rounded out the top-five finishers on the day.
Brandon Jones miraculously rebounded from a late crash to finish sixth. Jones was the Stage 1 winner.
Cole Custer, Chase Briscoe, Austin Hill and Ryan Sieg finished positions seventh through 10th.
It appeared it would be a shootout between Tyler Reddick and Christopher Bell for the win as they battled for the lead on a restart with nine laps to go. However, with Bell on the inside of Reddick with eight laps left, Bell’s car snapped loose and it was on from there.
Both drivers locked together and skidded hard into the outside wall. Bell and Reddick would end the day in 29th and 30th.
