With just over a lap to go, the two leaders were locked in a tight battle, with Jeremy Clements on fresher tires in the number 51 car pushing Matt Tifft in the 19 for the lead. Closing in on the final lap, Clements dove to the inside to try to take the lead and touched Tifft’s car and both spun. Both cars scrambled to get back on track as the field closed in.

Third place Michael Annett was too far behind to catch Clements who would go on to win the race, but was able to overtake Tifft to finish second.


After the race, Clements apologized to Tifft for the contact. “That was definitely not his fault,” he said during his post race interview.

The “Spin-and-win” capped an exciting day for the Xfinity series as they were in the spotlight with both the cup and truck series on a week hiatus.
