After contact from behind, Berry slid up the track. That further resulted in the number 8 to spin and collect Myatt Snider, Ryan Sieg, Jeb Burton, and Riley Herbst. Sieg’s car hit Burton with such force that the car vaulted up in the air for a brief few seconds.

In another incident, Noah Gragson and Daniel Hemric crashed, sending Noah into a spin. Hemric didn’t last for long after his tire blew up, sending him into the wall.

Meanwhile, race winner Allgaier spun rookie Julia Landauer around who ended up hitting the inside wall. This was Julia’s first race in the Xfinity Series.

After the crash, Julia made it back to the pits and carried on racing. Only to end up in a crash once again at the start of the final stage. Which lead her to finally retire from the race.

After the race, Justin was asked if he had heard that this is a Toyota track, not a Chevy place. He said, “We finished second here last year to one (Toyota) and I told these guys I really wanted to win here.”

“This place has been so much fun over the years.” Adding, “First of all, it’s my wife’s birthday, so if I can’t be with my wife on her birthday, the best thing to do is take home a trophy to her. Just proud of the team.”
