A.J. Allmendinger survives a chaotic race at Bristol Motor Speedway (September 17)

NASCAR Race Recap: A.J. Allmendinger pulled off the victory on Friday night to clinch the NASCAR Xfinity Series regular-season championship. Allmendinger barely edged out Austin Cindric for both victories.

Allmendinger only led one lap, but it was the most important one as he slid across the finish line into the inside wall. Allmendinger finished sixth in both stages, but a late-race restart helped give him a chance at victory.
