TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) Spencer Gallagher took the lead on the overtime lap to capture his first NASCAR Xfinity Series race Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway.

Gallagher went by Tyler Reddick on the final lap after previous leaders Austin Cindric and Justin Allgaier both ran out of gas during late cautions.

It was the only time Gallagher led during the 115-lap race. He previously competed in the Truck Series. His previous best finish was fifth at Bristol.

Brandon Jones finished second and Allgaier wound up third after refueling. Pole sitter Daniel Hemric led 39 laps but wound up 23rd.

Elliott Sadler was fifth but collected his second straight $100,000 Dash for Cash prize. He started in the rear because of an engine change.
