#NASCAR Xfinity Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway

 

The Xfinity Series heads back to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend for the Credit Karma Money 250 on Saturday, July 10 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio for the 18th race of the 2021 season.

 

Today’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race, the Credit Karma Money 250 will be the 31st running of the event at the historic track.

 

 

Already Clinched

The following three drivers have clinched a spot in the 12-driver Xfinity postseason field: Austin Cindric, AJ Allmendinger and Justin Allgaier.  Allgaier clinched a spot last weekend at Road America.

 

Sieg and Jones Heading Home, Again

Two drivers from Georgia entered in this weekend’s race, are extra revved-up about racing at their home track, Atlanta Motor Speedway and looking to finish better than they did earlier this season – RSS Racing’s Ryan Sieg from Tucker and Joe Gibbs Racing’s Brandon Jones from Atlanta.

 

Jones especially is looking for redemption after finishing 37th at the first Atlanta race. Sieg finished 10th.

 

Berry Holds onto His Sunoco Rookie Standings Lead, Gibbs Catching Up

Josh Berry held onto the lead in the NASCAR Xfinity Series rookie driver standings over Joe Gibbs Racing’s rising star Ty Gibbs even though he didn’t compete at Road America on Saturday. Berry, who ran a partial schedule for JR Motorsports, is only 18 points ahead of Gibbs after Road America, where Gibbs did compete but had a transmission issue that made him finish 33rd.

 

 

Manufacturer’s Championship Up for Grabs

Chevrolet is still in the lead in the manufacturer’s championship standings but not by much as Toyota is catching up. With seven wins, Chevrolet has 622 points and with six wins, Toyota has 610. Toyota has won five of the last seven races. Ford has four wins, all coming from Austin Cindric. They are third in the standings with four wins and 573 points.
