Allmending­er wins Las Vegas Xfinity race


AJ Allmending­er raced to the first victory of his comeback season by passing Daniel Hemric on the final restart in the Xfinity Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Allmending­er this year agreed to his first fulltime season since 2018 in a deal with Kaulig Racing. He’s friends with team owner Matt Kaulig. He was Kaulig’s “Trophy Hunter” last year in 11 races he was entered solely to win for the team. Kaulig then convinced Allmending­er to run for the Xfinity Series championsh­ip while also helping the organizati­on move to Cup next season.

The victory was the sixth in the Xfinity Series for Allmending­er, who retired at the end of the 2018 season rather than drive for an uncompetit­ive team.
