The win is Briscoe’s sixth of the year, breaking his tie with Austin Cindric for most victories this year.

He remained confident about Sunday’s race, telling his wife that he would win.

“We haven’t won in a month and a half but it feels like five years,” Briscoe told NBCSN. “We’re kind of back where I feel we were at the beginning of the year. Truthfully, I feel like today was the most dominant car we’ve had all year long.”

Ross Chastain, who earned his first stage win and first playoff point of the season, placed second. Cindric finished third and was followed by Brandon Jones and Daniel Hemric.
