William Byron takes the Checkered Flag, Winning the NASCAR XFINITY Series Ticket Galaxy 200 at Phoenix Raceway

Avondale, ARIZ. (November 11, 2017) – Coming into the NASCAR XFINITY Series Ticket Galaxy 200 at Phoenix Raceway, Elliott Sadler leads in points with 3,103.  William Byron is nipping at Salder’s heels with 3,098 points.  Justin Allgaier (3,094), Justin Poole (3,079) and Matt Tiff (3,074) make up the top five drivers prior to Saturday’s race.  None of the top five teams have a NASCAR XFINITY Series win in 2017.

Kyle Bush took the win at the 2016 Ticket Galaxy 200, but t’s Elliott Sadler who holds the race record.

Erik Jones qualified in the No. 1 position and lead the field to the green flag.  Byron qualified in the No. 2 position.  Early on in the race, the No. 14 Chevrolet driven by Brennan Poole made contact with the wall, taking him out of the race and bringing out the first caution.

The No. 22 of Ross Chastain would bring out another caution on lap 179 after making contact with the wall coming out of turn 4.  Ryan Blaney, who had led 146 of the 200 laps around Phoenix Raceway’s one mile tri-oval Saturday was unable to take the lead after pitting during the caution.  Byron, who was running 2nd took the lead after taking on only two tires during his pit stop, beating Blaney back out onto the track and ultimately winning the race.

Running behind the eight ball, several of Byron’s crew did not make it to Phoenix Raceway in time for the race after their flight had to make an unexpected landing.  Crew members from Allgaier and Sadler’s crew pitched in, leaving all of their teams short.

In the end, the top ten were 1. William Byron, 2. Ryan Blaney, 3. Erik Jones, 4. Christopher Bell, 5. Daniel Hemric, 6. Blake Koch, 7. Cole Custer, 8. Alex Bowman, 9. Austin Dillon, and 10. Justin Allgaier.

Homestead will be an all Chevrolet Playoff.  Byron, Justin Allgaier, and Elliott Sadler all drive Chevrolets for JR Motorsports, Dale Earnhardt’s team.  The team is owned by Dale Jr., his sister Kelly and Rick Hendrick.  Daniel Hemric rounds out the top four in the Playoffs that will run next Saturday.

Gates open at 8:00 am for the Can-Am 500, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.  The race starts at 12:30 pm.
