Xfinity Series races:

    Earlier this weekend, Natalie Decker made her Xfinity debut at the Daytona road course. Admittedly, she did not enjoy such a great race, as an early crash ended her hopes. Luckily, the 23-year-old still has a few more races to prove herself to her team and earn more races under her belt. Since Decker is only participating in five races, her schedule is pretty spread out. In fact, her next race takes place all the way in April. First and foremost, Decker will race on April 24 at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Next on the hit list is another superspeedway, namely the Nashville Superspeedway in Tennessee, on June 19. Where else will Natalie Decker race on? The penultim ate race for Decker will be at the Henry 180 Road America race on July 3. Finally, the RSS Racing driver will run at the Martinsville Speedway on October 30. In...
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Joe Gibbs said Tuesday his grandson Ty Gibbs will compete in 14 more Xfinity Series races this season after his surprising first victory. Ty Gibbs won Saturday’s Xfinity Series race in his first career NASCAR national start on the road course at Daytona International Speedway. The 18-year-old had never raced above the ARCA Series and jumped two levels for his Xfinity debut. He’s the sixth driver to win in his Xfinity Series debut but the first to win in his very first national series race. Ty Gibbs will race this year for both the ARCA championship and rookie of the year in the Xfinity Series. His schedule is set by his father, Coy. “They’ve tried to pick out the races where it would help him the most, and he would grow the most and get the most experience at those tracks,” Joe Gibbs said. “I think...

    The suspense around the future of the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing team’s personnel came to a halt on Tuesday.
