Charlotte Xfinity Series results: AJ Allmendinger wins
CONCORD, N.C. -- AJ Allmendinger is a perfect four-for-four on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
Allmendinger has won every Xfinity Series race held on the CMS oval-road course. He surged in front late Saturday and outran Ty Gibbs to win the track’s playoff race.
The point standings were reseeded after the race for the next round, and Noah Gragson will have a 12-point lead over Allmendinger as the playoffs move on to Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Following Allmendinger to the finish in the wreck-strewn race were Gibbs, Gragson, James Davison and Justin Allgaier.
AJ Allmendinger finished the first round with a series-high 2,184 points, but he won’t be first when the second round begins next weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The points for the eight remaining playoff drivers are reset to 3,000 and then their playoff points are added.
Noah Gragson will be first going into the next week with 3,056 points. Allmendinger is next at 3,044. Ty Gibbs is third at 3,038 points.
