This weekend, the Darlington Raceway is set to be the perfect setting for JR Motorsports’ first win of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season. However, through the previous ten races, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s team has not gotten a single win. JRM driver, Justin Allgeyer, has won the past two spring races, so it’s a promising environment for the team. Alongside Allgeyer, Sam Mayer, Josh Berry, and Brandon Jones will also race for JRM this weekend.
Kyle Larson and Ross Chastain, who are regulars in the Cup series, are scheduled for Saturday’s race. Details of Saturday’s Xfinity race at Darlington Raceway were provided: the Xfinity Garage opens at 10:30 am, driver introductions begin at 1:00 pm, and the race itself will start at 1:48 pm. The race consists of 147 laps (200 miles) of a 1.366-mile track, with a stage ending on the 45th and 90th lap.
Qualifying starts at 5:35 pm, and the race will be broadcast on FS1 at 1:30 pm. Motor Racing Network (MRN) coverage also begins at 1 pm and can be accessed via mrn.com. The Xfinity race is expected to be held mostly under cloudy weather with a temperature of 83 degrees Fahrenheit and a 15% likelihood of rain.
The last time an Xfinity race was held on the Darlington track was last September, where Noah Gragson was the winner. He beat Sheldon Creed by a close 0.794 seconds, with AJ Allmendinger finishing third.
