NASCAR Xfinity driver Brandon Jones surprised everyone and won the Kansas Lottery 250 in the final hours. In the final restart, he was running in the seventh spot and quickly rose to the second spot behind Austin Cindric.

He fought hard and took the win in the final lap.

NASCAR Xfinity posted a video of his battle to the front on Twitter. They wrote, “How did @BrandonJonesRac come from the back to steal the victory in NASCAR Overtime?

After the race, Brandon spoke to the media and expressed his happiness and praised his team and crew. He said, “We’re never out of this thing, that’s what I love about these guys.

“We keep our head in the game, we don’t get excited during these races. We continue to make changes.”

He added that the team valued his feedback, and it turned out pretty good for them.

Cindric expresses his frustration after the NASCAR Xfinity race

Austin Cindric, who was on the verge of capturing the Xfinity record for four consecutive wins, expressed his thoughts. He said, “There are about 20 things I feel like I should have done differently.”

Additionally, he talked about how Brandon and Burton displayed immense speed on the track. He said, “Well, I think to give credit where credit is due, Harrison Burton was the fastest guy today. He runs me down twice under green flag, and I hate for him to lose it like that, but that’s racing, there’s going to be late-race cautions.”

After that, he added, “Brandon did everything right, I probably got too caught up in trying to clear the (No.) 39, not focus on the runs. The dude jumped the restart zone by two car lengths, which was a bit unfortunate.

“Congrats to Brandon and Menards, he’s had a tough run lately so good to see that. Great points day for us, really wanted to get four in a row, really wanted to get Xpel… in victory lane.”
