There was a time when it looked like Austin Cindric couldn’t win at a 1.5-mile track. Now, it’s beginning to look like he’ll never lose at one again.
Cindric passed Brandon Jones for the lead on lap one of Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 250 and he never looked back as he cruised to the Stage 1 win.
Cindric swept both NASCAR Xfinity Series events at Kentucky a couple of weeks ago and then he won last week at Texas Motor Speedway when Kyle Busch was disqaualified in post-race inspection.
Ross Chastain used the high line to work his way up to second in Stage 1, while Harrison Burton, Jones and Justin Allgaier made up the rest of the top-five.
Justin Haley, who started the race with radio issues, was sixth.
Daniel Hemric, Brett Moffitt, Riley Herbst and Kaz Grala rounded out the top-10 in Stage 1.
