The Dinger Wins at Portland, Alumni on Podium at St. Louis and Detroit!

In the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at World Wide Technology Raceway in St. Louis, Skip Barber grad Kyle Busch finishes runner-up. The No. 18 Joe Gibbs Toyota improved throughout the day and was in control of the field on the final restart but did not have the short-run pace that race winner Joey Logano possessed in the overtime finish. Busch’s second-place finish at St. Louis marks his fifth top-3 finish of the season as he sits second in the NASCAR Cup Series standings.

A.J. Allmendinger conquers the action-packed wet race at Portland International Raceway and claims his second win of the season in the Xfinity Series. The road course ringer only led 6 of the 75 laps but found himself in position in the final restart to get into the lead and won by over 2.8 seconds. With the victory, Allmendinger extended his championship lead over Ty Gibbs to 44 points. Austin Hill finished the day in the third-place position after starting on the front row.

Another pair of Skip Barber advanced coaching graduates podiumed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at World Wide Technology Raceway. Christian Eckes finished runner-up after a late-race caution pushed the finish into overtime. Eckes led the race in dominant fashion with a truck suited for long-run speed before the caution. Chandler Smith drove the No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota back up to a third-place finish after being wrecked out from the lead at the end of Stage 2.

Alexander Rossi finished second on the streets of Belle Isle in the INDYCAR Detroit Grand Prix. The No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda rolled off from eleventh, made bold passes throughout the race, and utilized a three-stop strategy that seemed promising for Rossi. Still, unfortunately, race winner Will Power’s tire saving was good enough for him to hold on to win. Rossi sits seventh in the INDYCAR points standings as he still searches for his first win of the 2022 season.
