BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) Ryan Preece won the Xfinity Series race on Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway and took home the Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonus prize.
The 27-year-old Preece became the seventh different winner this year in the Xfinity Series in as many races, beating Justin Allgaier and Daniel Hemric to the finish line.
Brandon Jones gambled and took only two tires under caution with 10 laps to go and Preece was able to take him on the restart in his No. 18 Toyota. He pulled away for an easy victory.
Preece was competing with pole sitter Cole Custer, Christopher Bell and Hemric for the $100,000 prize. Bell, one of the pre-race favorites and the stage one winner, crashed just near the midway point of the race when he couldn’t avoid a collision between Vinnie Miller and Cody Ware.
