Justin Allgaier led 157 laps in Saturday’s Toyota Care 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

But Allgaier still came up short after Kyle Larson passed him before reaching the overtime line on the final lap before the caution flag waved.

Still, Allgaier finished second and earned his second Xfinity Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonus, the second time he’s done so this season.
