The NASCAR Xfinity Series is back in action with Saturday night’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Ten races remain until the playoffs begin.
Austin Hill has never finished worse than second in the three races at Atlanta since the track was reconfigured. He’s won the last two races there. Riley Herbst is the only other series driver to have a top 10 in each of the last three Atlanta races.
There are six drivers from Georgia entered in Saturday’s event — the most in any Xfinity race at Atlanta. Those six are: Hill, Brandon Jones, Ryan Sieg, Kyle Sieg, Chandler Smith and Mason Massey.
