Saturday Dover Xfinity race: Start time, TV info, weather
Josh Berry looks for his second consecutive win at Dover Motor Speedway on Saturday.
Should he do so, it would mark the first victory of the season for JR Motorsports. The four-car team has two runner-up finishes this season (Justin Allgaier at Las Vegas and Sam Mayer at Fontana) but no wins. This is the first season JR Motorsports hasn’t won in the first nine races of the season since 2012.
Cole Custer, Sheldon Creed, Jeb Burton and pole-sitter Parker Kligerman will be racing for the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus.
