Noah Gragson and the No. 9 JR Motorsports team have certainly proven that they’re the ones to beat after sweeping Stage 1 and 2 in Thursday’s Shady Rays 200 at Kentucky Speedway.
Gragson has led all but four laps through the opening 60 circuits of the event. Chase Briscoe led the other four laps in the Stage Break caution between Stages 1 and 2, as he was utilizing a contrarian pit strategy.
Austin Cindric was second in Stage 2 and he was followed by Briscoe, Ross Chastain and Riley Herbst in the top-five.
Justin Allgaier, Michael Annett, Ryan Sieg, Brandon Brown and Anthony Alfredo rounded out the top-10 and scored Stage Points as well.
