Late Vegas vroom lifts Ty Gibbs to his first Xfinity Series win of 2022

LAS VEGAS — Ty Gibbs pulled away from the field on a restart with six laps remaining and held off hometown favorite Noah Gragson to claim his first NASCAR Xfinity Series win of the season in Saturday‘s Alsco Uniforms 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

It was the first win of the year for Gibbs, 19, the grandson of NASCAR Hall of Fame team owner and three-time Super Bowl champion head coach Joe Gibbs. He had an eventful day from the drop of the green flag. His No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota got just the nudge he needed from JR Motorsports‘ Justin Allgaier on that final restart then pulled away from Allgaier‘s teammate Gragson to take the lead for the first time on the day and ultimately score his fifth career series victory.

This race had a little bit of everything — from snowflakes in the air to dust-ups on the track. There were 17 lead changes, 11 caution flags and a 42-minute red flag for light snow and rain.

For the first half of the race, there was never more than a 15-lap period of green-flag laps run between caution flags. There were seven yellow flags by Stage 2, which ended at Lap 90.

Gibbs‘ day started with a run-in with veteran Ryan Sieg on Lap 4 of the 200-lap race. The two made enough contact while racing hard to send Sieg‘s No. 39 RSS Racing Ford hard into the outside wall. The team was still making repairs when the red flag came out for rain and reports of light snow.

With drivers standing outside their cars, Sieg made his way down pit road to have what appeared to be an animated discussion with Gibbs about the incident. And Sieg was visibly still frustrated after the talk.

“It‘s tough, but it is what it is,‘‘ Sieg told reporters while still waiting by his car. “He‘s definitely going to have to learn his lesson, you know what I mean.‘‘

Gibbs remained adamant that he didn‘t do anything on purpose.

“I told him if my goal was to wreck you and end your day, you wouldn‘t have made it around another lap,‘‘ a defiant Gibbs said.

A few minutes later, he softened his tone and apologized for ruining Sieg‘s day and the impact it had on the Sieg‘s small, family-owned team. The race re-started, and only a handful of laps later, Sieg pulled alongside Gibbs and looked as if he was trying to wreck Gibbs, but he missed and spun out himself. Sieg’s ensuing spin collected the cars of Sheldon Creed and Brett Moffitt. Sieg drove back to the garage and retired after completing just 25 laps, finishing 36th in the 38-car field.

Again, after the race, Gibbs apologized to Sieg on live television for starting the whole episode.

“I want to apologize to the 39 (Sieg) for the contact I made, it wasn‘t my best decision and I‘m sorry to the whole group, Ryan‘s family they work so hard.

“I want to say thank you to Justin Allgaier for my push, too,‘‘ Gibbs added. “I had a fun time racing with the JR (Motorsports) cars, too, so hopefully we can keep it going and win some more races.

“Let‘s go!‘‘ he added with a scream.

Certainly it was a bitter pill for Gragson to swallow. He won both Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the race and was leading when the final caution came out for a multi-car wreck in Turn 4. He lined up with Kaulig Racing‘s Daniel Hemric behind him. His teammate Allgaier was behind Gibbs, and Gibbs was able to pull away just enough to stake a nearly half-second lead before a wreck — after the white flag — froze the field.

Gragson finished runner-up, followed by Hemric and JR Motorsports drivers Josh Berry and Allgaier.  Landon Cassill, rookie Sheldon Creed, Brett Moffitt, polesitter A.J. Allmendinger and Brandon Jones completed the top 10.

“I just kind of got beat at our own game there. Restarts just came up short,‘‘ Gragson said, adding, “Just needed to be better. Congrats to them and we‘ll keep working hard. Thankful to this team led by Luke Lambert and we‘ll come back stronger next week.”

“Obviously, I wanted to be in Victory Lane, but it could be a hell of a lot worse, ‘‘ he said.

Though Gragson was disappointed to miss out on the win, this marks his second runner-up finish in 2022. He has a third place and two second-place showings and holds the Xfinity Series championship lead by 17 points over Gibbs.

The Xfinity Series’ next race is the United Rentals 200, scheduled next Saturday (4:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM) at Phoenix Raceway.

Notes: Sam Mayer led four times for 25 laps in a bid for his first top-five finish of the year. A crash with 19 laps left knocked him from contention, and he finished 25th, two laps down. … Chevrolet drivers finished second through ninth behind Gibbs’ winning Toyota. … Joe Graf Jr., who unofficially finished 29th, was disqualified in post-race inspection for having just 17 of 20 lug nuts secured, violating section 10.5.2.5.D of the NASCAR rule book. Graf is credited with a last-place finish.
