What an ending at COTA last week, unless of course you are an A.J. Allmendinger or Alex Bowman fan. Ross Chastain and TrackHouse Racing picked up their first win taking the lead on the last lap after divebombing and spinning out A.J. Allmendinger. This week the series heads to Richmond Raceway for the first short track race of the season. It should be exciting to see how the Next Gen cars perform on the .75-mile track.
