Hey folks! Here's my take on the Mid-Ohio weekend. This was an Xfinity standalone.
Saturday was the Xfinity race. Justin Marks won with 43 laps led, followed by pole-sitter Sam Hornish, Jr. with 8 laps led, Ryan Blaney with 6 laps led, Ty Dillon with 5 laps led and Justin Allgaier. Rounding out the top-10 were rookie Erik Jones, Andy Lally with 3 laps led, Brendan Gaughan, Elliott Sadler and rookie Brennan Poole. Ross Chastain led 1 lap and finished 14th. Darrell Wallace, Jr finished 15th after leading 7 laps. Owen Kelly led 2 laps and finished 16th. J.J. Yeley was 35th after an accident on lap 56. Kenny Habul and Tim Cowan were 36th and 37th after crashing out on lap 54. Nelson Piquet, Jr. was 38th due to an accident on lap 31.
