    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — It is supposed to be easy being Austin Cindric, the son of Roger Penske’s right-hand man. He will be in NASCAR’s big leagues next year, part of a carefully mapped path set by Team Penske. But even with a direct line to the top of the Penske organization, Cindric has had to earn his own way. Penske dismissed any hint of nepotism from team President Tim Cindric toward his 22-year-old son. “If he didn’t get the job done, Tim would be the first one to say let’s move on,” Penske said. The younger Cindric solidified his standing at Penske by winning six races last year and his first Xfinity Series championship. It showed Penske he made the right call at the start of the pandemic when, after initially considering idling the No. 22 Ford team, he instead kept it on track to...
    In the 2021 NASCAR Cup season, there will be a couple of new faces, one of them being Stewart-Haas Racing driver Chase Briscoe. The man has admitted that he has a lot to learn and will be seeking advice from his teammate, Kevin Harvick. However, this will not be the first time the youngster has shadowed Harvick in his career. In fact, their association goes all the way back to Briscoe’s Xfinity debut in 2018. Needless to say, Briscoe has a relatively decent debut season, racking up a few top 10s. Since then, he has gone from strength to strength, even though he has yet to win an Xfinity title.

    As the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series continues its steady march, the grid is steadily filling up. The latest puzzle piece comes in the form of Noah Gragson with Beard Motorsports. However, his recruitment to the #62 Chevrolet only lasts for the Daytona 500, with no word on the rest of the season. In other words, Gragson will compete in the Daytona 500 in the Xfinity and the Cup Series on February 14th. As it turns out, the 22-year-old is basically succeeding Brendan Gaughan, who retired from racing. Since 2017, Gaughan has competed in a handful of Cup races and recorded four Top 10 finishes for Beard Motorsports. In 2020, Noah Gragson had a great run of form, taking two wins during the season, including one at Daytona. Incidentally, it was his first-ever Xfinity Series win, so Daytona obviously holds good memories for him. He even finished as high as fifth...

    MIAMI – A late caution flag gave Harrison Burton new life, and he took advantage. AP Burton took the inside line on the way to the lead in the final lap, and held on to win the Xfinity Series race Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway — denying, among others, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Noah Gragson, who seemed to be in full command with seven laps remaining.
