Brandon Brown saw his lead for the final spot in the Xfinity Series playoff grid decline after he failed to finish last weekend’s race on the Daytona road course.
Brown placed 34th after a mechanical issue. His advantage on Jeremy Clements fell from 53 points to 28 points this past weekend. Clements closed the gap by finishing sixth. Austin Cindric won at Daytona.
Seven races remain until the playoffs begin Sept. 26 at Las Vegas. The Xfinity Series races twice this weekend at Dover, competing at 12:30 p.m. ET Saturday and 1:30 p.m. ET Sunday. Both races are on NBCSN.
