Xfinity Regulars Poised To Snatch A Victory

Justin Allgaier

This will be a truer test of the Xfinity Series championship situation with Cup rookie Ryan Preece the only fulltime Cup driver entered in Saturday’s RINNAI 250 – a race won the past six years by a Cup regular.

Defending series champion Tyler Reddick holds a five-point edge on his championship runner-up Cole Custer heading into Atlanta. Joe Gibbs Racing driver Christopher Bell arrives as statistically the top-ranked Xfinity driver at the track, after a third place showing in his Atlanta debut last year – a race won by Cup driver Kevin Harvick, who led a dominating 141 of 163 laps.

The entry list this weekend features a robust slate of Xfinity title contenders from Bell to Reddick and Custer. Talented young driver Austin Cindric will campaign a full-year in the Penske Racing No. 22 Ford. And perennial championship contender Justin Allgaier returns as well. Rookie Noah Gragson begins a season of high expectations and is coming off an 11th place finish at Daytona.
