WHO HAD A BAD DAY: Noah Gragson had a forgettable weekend. He spun in practice and got stuck in the gravel in Turn 1. In Saturday’s race, he spun and then fell out after after leaking fluid. It marks the fourth race he’s failed to finish in 11 events this year. He placed last in the 36-car field. … Daniel Hemric twice had to pit because the car was stuck in gear, costing him a top-10 finish. He finished 29th.
