Dover’s Monster Mile is up Next for the NASCAR Xfinity Series

Dover’s Monster Mile is up Next for the NASCAR Xfinity Series


NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers will need to bring their A-game this weekend for the A-Game 200 at Dover Motor Speedway (1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 30 on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) for the 10th race of the 2022 season. Five drivers have secured their spots in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs this season, leaving seven positions still open.


Last year at the Monster Mile, it was Team Penske’s Austin Cindric who worked his way up from the 16th starting position to win for the third time in the 2021 season (Cindric went on to win two more times that year).


There have been 75 NASCAR Xfinity Series races at Dover Motor Speedway with 48 different pole winners and 51 different race winners. Eight races have been won from the pole at Dover in the Xfinity Series, the most recent by Kyle Larson in 2017.


Kyle Busch has the most wins at the track (2008, 2010 sweep, 2014 sweep), has posted the most top 10s (15), and has led the most laps at the Monster Mile (1,349).


Joey Logano holds the race record at 131.219 mph in 2013 and Erik Jones holds the qualifying record at 158.318 mph in 2016.


This weekend, two former Xfinity Series Dover pole winners are entered in the A-Game 200 – Daniel Hemric (10/06/18) and Brandon Jones (05/05/18). And just one former Xfinity Series Dover winner is entered this weekend – Justin Allgaier,  a two-time Monster Mile winner (2018, 2020).


On-track activity for the NASCAR Xfinity Series will get started on Friday, April 29 with practice scheduled from 3 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET, directly followed by qualifying at 3:30 p.m. ET.
