BRCC Drivers Land With Mixed Standings After Midwest and Southwest NASCAR Races

From the Kansas Speedway’s AdventHealth 400 to the Texas Motor Speedway’s All-Star Race, the BRCC NASCAR crew is doing its best to keep pace and rack up points in these Midwest and Southwest races.


Texas Motor Speedway saw Noah Gragson start at P1 (pole). This is the first time that Gragson had ever set a fast time for an Xfinity Series race.


He managed to win Stage One, making this his sixth of the season and seventh in a row for a JR Motorsports driver. It also earned him 10 stage points. However, a nasty multicar crash in the 87th lap left Gragson’s car with major damage, and even though the pit crew worked to get him back on the track, he ended up with a flat tire that sent him backward into a wall. This second mishap ended the race early for Gragson and put him in 36th for the race.



Thanks to Gragson’s earlier victories in the season, he’s currently 44 points behind the leader (AJ Allmendinger) after 12 races, and he’s also in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) Playoffs.

Ty Dillon started in 17th position and finished in 20th at the Kansas Speedway, putting him in 26th place for the season, with 222 points. 

At the Texas Motor Speedway, the All-Star Open featured three stages: two 20-lap stages and one 10-lap stage. The winner of each stage advanced to the All-Star Race. Breaking down the All-Star Race, the 125-lap main event featured four stages: three 25-lap stages and a 50-lap final stage. The Stage One winner started on the pole for the final stage – if that driver finished 15th or better in Stages Two and Three. The winner of Stage Two started second for the final stage, provided that driver finished 15th or better in Stage Three, and the Stage Three winner started third in the final stage.

Prior to the race, Dillon stated his hopes to land one of the stage wins in order to advance to the All-Star Race.

“I’m looking forward to the All-Star Race,” Dillon said in a Petty GMS press release. “Texas has been a good place to me in general over the last four or five years. I hope to race our way in through the Open and if not, fall back hopefully on the fan vote. The goal obviously is to be in the All-Star race on Sunday night and be racing for that million. [...] I always have fun going to Texas and being in that area. I can’t wait to get there and have a chance on Sunday.”

Dillon started in 12th and finished 6th for the All-Star Open and continues in 26th place overall moving forward.
