A race that ended with Kyle Busch winning on the track, only to fail post-race inspection, saw Austin Cindric win his third NASCAR Xfinity Series race in a row, and Jeb and Harrison Burton finished in the Top 10.
Harrison, the son of South Boston native Jeff Burton, finished in fourth place, and Jeb, a South Boston native and son of Ward Burton, finished in sixth place.
Busch appeared to have won his NASCAR Xfinity Series record 98th race in the series, but a post-race inspection revealed that the left rear on his car was too low, and his win was erased. That meant that runner-up, Cindric, was deemed the race winner and after sweeping the series races at Kentucky last week, won his third race in a row.
Jeb and Harrison both avoided incidents all afternoon to wind up in the Top 10 when the dust settled. Jeb lined up in the second row after a late race caution, but he spun his tires on the restart and got shuffled to the back of the lead lap in the overtime restart.
Burton talked about what happened in that last restart in a video he posted to his Twitter page after the race.
“The last restart, sitting right there in the catbird seat, I just spun my tires really bad and that just messed us all up,” Burton said. “My restarts were always pretty good, we gained spots all day on restarts and we always do, but that one just didn’t go our way,” he added.
He also spoke about the car and how good it was during the race.
“I am really proud of my guys, they brought a really fast race car, best mile and a half car I have had at JR Motorsports out of my 11 races last year and this year, so I am really proud of that,” he said.
Harrison led 16 laps during the race after staying out during green flag pit stops with less than 30 laps remaining in the race. Burton pitted to get left side tires and fuel, hoping he would come back on the track in front of the leaders, but he came out just behind them, but stayed in the top five for most of the race and was able to finish in fourth position.
Jeb isn’t scheduled to run any Xfinity Series races in the near future, but Harrison is back on the track on Saturday when the series heads to Kansas Speedway for the Kansas Lottery 250 at 5 p.m. on NBCSN.
