Austin Cindric is still on the hunt for his first win in the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season and Talladega Superspeedway could be where he gets it done.
The driver of the No. 22 Team Penske Ford has five top fives and seven top 10s so far this season. He has an average start of 7.7 and an average finish of 10.9.
Most recently, he finished second at the first of two races last weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Cindric has finished in the top-10 in all but three races so far this season.
He’s led 230 laps and is currently in fourth in the championship points standings for the series – the highest-ranked driver without a win. But he has been upfront, Cindric has led the third-most percentage of laps this season (12.57%) sitting behind a pair of JR Motorsports teammates Noah Gragson and Justin Allgaier.
This weekend’s Unhinged 300 on Saturday, June 20 (5:30 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) will be Cindric’s third Xfinity Series start at the track. Last season, he finished fifth for Team Penske in this event.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
