The Monday Night Racing Pro Series took to the Legacy Texas Motor Speedway on Monday (July 26), and the race was won by Corey Heim.
It was Heim’s second win of the season, and though he’s not in the playoffs, Heim remains a force every time he runs the series and proved it with a dominant victory.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series cars were utilized once again on an intermediate track in the series, but this time it was mostly clean and green with only one caution the entire race. Tire strategy was something that became a factor, but in the end, it all came down to who had the best speed and management over the long runs throughout the race.
Tires wore out, and side-by-side racing was not easy to come by because of most drivers hanging on for dear life over a run. This was easily the cleanest race of the season, and it came down to track position for the most part after the one and only caution on lap 15. Once Heim got out front, he never looked back. He was the fastest by far all night long and closed the deal.
With this being a cutoff race, the three drivers eliminated from the playoffs were Nick Olsen, Matt Stallknecht and George Balfanz Jr.
The series is now down to 10 drivers for the championship. The top five finishers following Heim were Adam Cabot, Anthony Alfredo, Bailey Turner and Collin Fern.
The next race will be at the virtual Las Vegas Motor Speedway with the Camping World Trucks. Coverage begins on Monday, August 1 at 8 p.m. ET on Twitch.tv/podiumesports.
