Justin Allgaier gets coveted NASCAR Xfinity win at the Brickyard: The Lilly Diabetes 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway may have been delayed by rain for two days, but that wasn't enough to break the magical run Justin Allgaier is enjoying. Holding off JR Motorsports teammate Tyler Reddick after grabbing the lead on Lap 84 of 100 in Monday's event, Allgaier collected his fifth victory of the season, his third in the last five races and - perhaps most important - his first at the vaunted Brickyard. The victory was the 10th of Allgaier's career. With one race left before the cutoff for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs (Saturday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway), Allgaier moved significantly closer to the regular-season title and accompanying bonus of 15 Playoff points.[More](9-10-2018)
