While AJ Allmendinger won the Xfinity Series race the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval, one of the biggest moments of the night came from Brandon Brown in the #68 car. Last weekend’s race winner made a spectacle of himself at the final corner, where several cars were wrecking. As the checkered flag waved, a few cars spun while exiting the final corner.

Apparently, Brown was one of them and he ended up facing the wrong way. Normally, a driver would spin the car back around and head to the finish line. However, the #68 driver had other ideas, so he decided to reverse across the line. Admittedly, he was not in control and practically fighting the car.

To be precise, the car swerved left and right a few times before he finally crossed the line. In the end, he was classified in 22nd place for Brandonbilt Motorsports. While it was a disappointment from his high point of winning at Talladega, at least he was glad to finish this weekend’s race.

Aside from Brandon Brown, how did the race pan out for other drivers?

As mentioned before, reigning regular-season champion AJ Allmendinger won the race. He finished ahead of Austin Cindric, Daniel Hemric, Justin Haley and Brandon Jones. With this, Allmendinger has more than secured his qualification to the next Playoff round.
