MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Noah Gragson vowed to win at Martinsville Speedway to earn a spot in the Xfinity Series championship and backed it up Saturday night. Gragson beat reigning champion Austin Cindric in a drag race to the finish line of second overtime to grab one of the open slots in the winner-take-all finale at Phoenix. Gragson will race Cindric, AJ Allmendinger and Daniel Hemric for the championship. Gragson chugged a beer handed to him from a spectator in the stands in celebration of the win. The emotion in the Xfinity Series has made its championship race the best in NASCAR.
