CHEVROLET SWEEPS NASCAR XFINITY SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP ROSTER
William Byron, Elliott Sadler, Justin Allgaier and Daniel Hemric will race for title in Miami
NOVEMBER 11, 2017
It came down to the final lap but Daniel Hemric passed Cole Custer and raced his way into the NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship 4 on Saturday at Phoenix Raceway.
“We lost the balance a little bit of that last longer run, and we had been so strong on long runs all day. So I didn’t know what to do.”
He pitted for tires, while Custer took four. Custer was able to pass Hemric off the restart, but Hemric was able to clear Custer at the line for the final spot — just two points to the good.
“Hats off to him for racing me clean there. We did everything we could when our seasons were on the line, it all led to one lap and one moment. It’s about rising to the occasion and that’s what we did today.”
Meanwhile, William Byron advanced after the first stage on points and cemented it with his fourth victory of the season. Two other JR Motorsports drivers will join him in racing for a championship in the form of Elliott Sadler and Justin Allgaier.
Each of the final four are Chevrolets — the just crowned manufacturers champion in the Xfinity Series.
“Chevrolet is honored to win the 2017 Bill France Performance Cup in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the 18th time,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. Vice President of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “This manufacturer championship is a result of dedication by all of the Chevy team owners, drivers, crew chiefs, engineers and team members.”
