The NASCAR Xfinity Series was the main attraction Saturday at Richmond Raceway and while John Hunter Nemechek shined in the first two stages, it was young Ty Gibbs who once again proved that he is the man to beat in the Xfinity Series in 2022, leading 113 laps on the road to claiming the victory in the ToyotaCare 250.
Gibbs outlasted Nemechek with a last-lap pass for his third win of 2022 and the seventh of his young career.
It took all of 25 starts for Ty Gibbs to reach seven wins, becoming the quickest to reach the mark and beating former Gibbs driver Joey Logano.
“We’re racing for wins and I had to take it. John Hunter ran a great race and good for Toyota finishing 1-2,” Ty Gibbs told Fox Sports 1. “Gotta do whatever I can to win.”
Gibbs led 115 laps, while Nemechek led 135. The only remaining lap was led by Sam Mayer. There was only one natural caution, which was for debris.
Next up for the Xfinity Series is a date with the paperclip of Martinsville Speedway. FS1 will have TV coverage starting at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, April 8.
