Throughout the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season, Austin Cindric and Chase Briscoe have been the two best cars week after week and once again it came down to Briscoe and Cindric in the closing laps of stage two.

In a contact filled battle for the stage victory, Briscoe and Cindric made heavy contact on many occasions with Briscoe’s No. 98, with Briscoe eventually edging out Cindric’s No. 22 by just over a tenth of a second.

Harrison Burton finished third in stage two, followed by AJ Allmendinger and Andy Lally inside the top-five.

Stage two of the event featured two caution flags over the span of the 15 lap run, with the first coming early in the stage, after Noah Gragson spun into the tire barriers on Lap 19.

Later in the stage, on lap 22, Josh Williams got a tire off in the bus stop chicane, tearing the front end off his DGM Racing Chevrolet.
