Austin Cindric has emerged as a true threat in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this week at Kentucky Speedway. Cindric took his first win of 2020 and his first-career win on an oval in Thursday’s Shady Rays 200, and on Friday he backed that up with a Stage 2 win in the Alsco 300.

Anthony Alfredo, who has been super impressive during his part-time schedule with Richard Childress Racing in 2020, was second in Stage 2.

Harrison Burton, Chase Briscoe and Daniel Hemric capped off the top-five finishers in Stage 2.

Riley Herbst, Brandon Jones, Stage 1 winner Noah Gragson, Justin Haley and Jeremy Clements rounded out the top-10 finishers in Stage 2.

Justin Allgaier, who ended Stage 1 in 25th after some seriously rough luck, ended Stage 2 in 16th, one lap off the pace.
