2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series preview: Dover 2

The NASCAR Xfinity Series will conclude its doubleheader slate at Dover International Speedway Sunday afternoon. 

The first leg of the doubleheader at the “Monster Mile” saw Justin Allgaier lock in a playoff position after he prevailed over Austin Cindric to claim his first win of the season. 

Due to lineup inversion for the top 15 finishers, Brett Moffitt will start on the pole. In 19 career races in the Xfinity Series, Moffitt has finished inside the top 10 five times. Of those five races, four of them have occurred this season (Charlotte, Talladega, Pocono and Kentucky). 

Brandon Brown currently sits just above the 12-driver playoff cutline (12th). The 26-year-old for Brandonbilt Motorsports has five career top-10 finishes, with four of them coming this season (Daytona, Charlotte, Bristol and Texas). Brown will start on the front row with Moffitt. 

Jeremy Clements currently sits below the playoff cutline (13th). Clements has also finished inside the top 10 four times this season (Fontana, Bristol, Pocono and Daytona road course). Clements will start the race in third. 

While Chase Briscoe was initially slated to start 10th, he will be forced to go to the rear due to using a backup car. Any other driver who must make engine, transmission or car change will also be forced to the rear. 

Stage lengths will be identical to the first race (45-45-110). Coverage for the race will begin on NBC Sports Network at 1:00 p.m. EST.
