Blaney Dominates XFINITY Series Race In Texas

For the third straight NASCAR XFINITY Series race, the No. 22 Ford goes to victory lane. It does so too with a third different driver. Brad Keselowski took the Team Penske entry to victory lane at the ISM Raceway in March. His Penske teammate Joey Logano did so next in Fontana. After two weeks off, the series was back in action on Saturday afternoon at the Texas Motor Speedway. This time, it was Ryan Blaney’s turn in the car.

He kept the streak going.

Blaney, started on the pole and led 132 of the 200 laps en route to a dominating victory on the 1.5-mile track. Last year, Blaney finished second in both XFINITY Series races at Texas. Now, he has a win.

It was Blaney’s seventh career XFINITY Series win in his second start of the season.

Christopher Bell brought his No. 20 Toyota home runner-up for his fourth top five finish in the last five races.

Daniel Hemric came home third in his No. 21 Chevrolet for his fourth straight top six finish. Cole Custer had his best result of the season with a fourth place run in his No. 00 rod. It was his fourth straight top 10 effort though.

Ryan Preece rounded out the top five.

The series heads to Bristol next weekend.
