Allgaier holds off teammate Sadler to win Xfinity at Dover
DOVER, Del. (AP) —
Justin Allgaier held off teammate Elliott Sadler in a door-to-door race through the final turn at Dover International Speedway to win the Xfinity Series race on Saturday.
Sadler used lapped traffic to set up his attempt to snatch the lead from Allgaier and played it perfectly as he pulled alongside Allgaier. The two Chevrolets touched, Allgaier wiggled, but held on for the victory.
He's the 10th different Xfinity Series winner in 10 races this season. Dating to last year, a record 13 different drivers have won.
Allgaier collected a $100,000 bonus from series sponsor Xfinity with the victory. His first win of the season was also his first at the Delaware mile.
Sadler led 33 laps and finished .306 seconds behind his teammate.
NASCAR started the race one hour earlier than scheduled to avoid rain and completed the event without interruption.
