Reigning series champion Austin Cindric passed Justin Allgaier for the lead with 51 laps to go and went on to win Saturday’s Xfinity race at Dover International Speedway.

The victory is Cindric’s series-best third of the season and 11th in his career.

“How about that guys!” Cindric yelled on the team’s radio. “Dover!”

Josh Berry finished second to earn the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus. JR Motorsports won each of the four bonuses this season.

Justin Allgaier, who led a race-high 94 laps, placed third and was followed by AJ Allmendinger and Ty Gibbs.

STAGE 1 WINNER: Justin Allgaier

STAGE 2 WINNER: Josh Berry

WHO HAD A BAD RACE: Matt Jaskol’s car got launched onto the hood of Jesse Little‘s car. Jaskol slowed for the incident and got hit from behind, sending him sliding down the track and on to Little’s car. Jaskol finished 39th in the 40-car field. Little placed 38th. … Zane Smith was driving in place of Justin Haley, who was out because of COVID-19 protocols. Smith got into the back of Brandon Jones‘ car and both wrecked. Smith said on the radio to his team that his brakes didn’t respond when he hit the pedal. Smith finished 36th. Jones placed 35th.

NEXT: The series runs its inaugural race May 22 at Circuit of the Americas (4 p.m. ET on FS1)
