RCR Teammates Hemric, Tifft Ending Regular Season On High Note

It was a preconceived notion that two of the four Championship 4 spots in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at the Homestead-Miami Speedway would belong to Justin Allgaier and Christopher Bell. While it’s still very likely that the duo make it to Homestead, two more sleepers are emerging to join them. I’d watch out for the Richard Childress Racing duo of Daniel Hemric and Matt Tifft. They’re heading into the playoffs on hot streaks and driving as well as anyone with the exception of Allgaier.

Hemric Building Momentum Towards Playoffs

INDIANAPOLIS – Daniel Hemric’s 2018 NASCAR XFINITY Series season has been a wave of up and down results. He had 13 top seven finishes in the first 16 races of the year.

But, after a fifth place finish in his No. 21 Chevrolet in Monday’s rain delayed Lilly Diabetes 250 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, he’s heading into the playoffs with some positive momentum.

SPARTA, KY – Two of the hottest drivers in the NASCAR XFINITY Series over the last few months came up just short in Friday night’s Alsco 300 at the Kentucky Speedway.

After Friday’s Final 2 XFINITY Series Practices, It Looks Like The 2017 Champion May Not Have To Win Saturday’s Race

Homestead, Fla – Out of the three NASCAR divisions crowning their season champion this weekend at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, the only series that I could see a champion be crowned by not actually win the race was in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series should see the race winner on Friday night be either one of Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter, Christopher Bell or Austin Cindric.
