Saturday Phoenix Xfinity race: Start time, TV info, weather

Justin Allgaier is expected to be among the contenders in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Phoenix Raceway.

To date, the season has been a success but also a frustration for Allgaier. He has finished third at Daytona, third at Auto Club Speedway and second at Las Vegas. So close — but no Victory Lane.

Allgaier has an excellent history at Phoenix with two wins, two second places and nine top-five runs.
