Briscoe wins fifth 2020 Xfinity race at The Brickyard

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Chase Briscoe claimed that he would win at least eight races before the 2020 Xfinity Series. He is already more than half the way there.

Briscoe won the Pennzoil 150 at the Brickyard at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Circuit on Saturday in Speedway, Indiana. This is Briscoe’s fifth win this season.

“Everybody knows growing up my hero in racing was Tony Stewart and getting to drive for him and watch him win the Brickyard and that was always his signature thing and I just wanted to do it,” Briscoe said. “Honestly, it’s not the same prestige as winning on the oval but you still won at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and it doesn’t matter if your racing on the oval, the road course, the dirt track or even the parking lot, it’s special winning here. Growing up and coming here all the time it’s unbelievable to think I just won here. So happy.

“I’m wore out, that fence climb will take a lot out of you. I’ve dreamed of coming to this race track and just getting to race here so to win here is unbelievable. I can’t put it into words.”

Due to the coronavirus pandemic that caused the NASCAR community, like much of the world, to be on hold for several months, Briscoe now has five wins through the first 13 races on the season. Only Sam Ard, who had six wins through the first 13 races, was better, as this happened during the 1984 season.

Ard had eight wins on the season in 1984 that he set the record. He only had two wins over the final 22 races of the season.

With this win, Briscoe now has seven Xfinity Series wins in his career. He had one win previously in 2018 and 2019.

Justin Haley finished second, while Noah Gragson finished third.

Briscoe led a race-high 30 laps, while Austin Cindric led 21 laps. A.J. Allmendinger, Justin Allgaier, Preston Pardus, Ryan Sieg, and Brandon Jones led two laps each, while Jeb Burton led one lap.

Three drivers were not able to finish the race. This includes Tommy Joe Martins, Jeffrey Earnhardt, and Jones.
