July NASCAR Heats Up for BRCC Drivers

In the weeks following the Nashville Superspeedway race, the Black Rifle Coffee Company NASCAR drivers have been busy. Both Ty Dillon and Noah Gragson headed to Wisconsin to race on the Road America track over the Fourth of July weekend. Dillon finished 20th in the Kwik Trip 250, and Gragson finished eighth in the Henry 180. On Stage One, Gragson held sixth place, then, on Stage Two, he dropped to ninth. After the Henry 180, Gragson held two wins and 16 playoff points, putting him in second place for the Xfinity Cup Series. 


During the Xfinity Cup race, there was a 13-car pileup during lap 25, resulting in multiple heavy impacts and leading to a $35,000 fine for Gragson causing the crash as well as 30 driver points.

“Yeah, I guess he [Sage Karam] forgot the three times he threw it off in the corner, doored us and ran us off the race track,” Noah Gragson said in a NASCAR interview. “Eventually, you get sick and tired of it. I hate people’s stuff got torn up. But, three times is a bit ridiculous, today. Not including the past. So, I take responsibility. I hate it for his guys, but we’re fighting to race for a championship here. I’m just really over getting run over.”

Recent reports post-race weekend show that Road America will not be part of the NASCAR Cup Series during the 2023 season and, instead, a Chicago street course race will be on the schedule.

From Wisconsin, Dillon competed at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, racing in the Quaker State 400. He started in 23rd position and finished the race in 28th. Gragson raced in the Alsco Uniforms 250 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, starting in sixth position, finishing Stage One in fifth position and finishing the race in sixth position.

During the Saturday, July 16, race weekend at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Dillon held 18th position for the practice run, started in 35th position for the race, and finished 33rd in the Ambetter 301. Gragson held 16th position in the practice run, started in ninth position, and finished in fourth. However, he was disqualified during post-race tech because of his car being too low in the front, according to post-race front-body inspection heights. Currently in the Xfinity Cup Series, Gragson sits in fifth place with 16 playoff points.

Matt Crafton got a break Fourth of July weekend as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series picked up on July 9 at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course. Crafton finished the race in 18th position, earning 19 points for the series. The next NCWTS event will take Crafton to the Pocono Raceway on July 22. 


Where to find the drivers next: Matt Crafton is headed to the Pocono Raceway on July 22 for the CRC Brakleen 150; Noah Gragson and Ty Dillon are also headed to the Pocono Raceway for the Explore the Pocono Mountains 225 on July 23 and the M&M’s Fan Appreciation 400 on July 24, respectively.
