Cole Custer took the lead from Austin Cindric with 20 laps to go and won Friday nights NASCAR Xfinity (NXS) Toyota Care 250 at Richmond Raceway. Custer led 122 laps in route to his fourth career series win and second win of the season.

“It is a great race for us. Our first short track win and second win of the year. It means a ton.” Custer said.

Custer also collected the $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus as the highest finisher among four eligible drivers.

Justin Allgaier finished third, Tyler Reddick fourth and Ryan Sieg finished fifth. Want to win also, go to Bet East and collect.

Cindric’s second-place equaled his career-best NXS career finishes and captured his sixth top-10 finish in 2019.

“It is great to get LTi Printing a great finish here at Richmond and be able to capitalize on what was a better short run car tonight. I have kind of had all spectrums all three of my races here. We will come back here in the playoffs for an important race in the first round with a good notebook. Congrats to Cole and those guys.” Cindric said.

At Talladega, Custer, Cindric, Allgaier and Reddick will be eligible for the next $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus.

Reddick collected his sixth top-five finish of the year despite power-steering Issues.

“Wow, what a battle by my No. 2 Anderson’s Maple Syrup team today to claim our fifth-consecutive top-five finish at one of my most challenging tracks.” Reddick said. “About halfway during Stage 2, the power steering went out in our Camaro, and that didn’t help the situation. We never gave up and kept fighting for every spot we could.”

Elliott Sadler came out of retirement for this race and he finished 12th.

Supra driver Riley Herbst finished ninth in his 2019 NXS debut.

“We started on the pole and led a few laps in the beginning. The whole first stage we just rode in third and fourth. We were cruising. We had a really good Toyota Supra. I made a lot of mistakes tonight. At the end of the stage, I spun my tires and that brought me back down to the mid-teens and 20s.” Herbst said. “I definitely learned a lot every single lap tonight and Richmond is definitely a difficult race track, but it’s fun.”
