Following his fourth-place finish at Darlington Raceway, Noah Gragson was disqualified from his result after failing post-race inspection due to an issue in the suspension.
What was supposed to be a day of celebration for JR Motorsports after a win for Justin Allgaier and a runner-up finish for Josh Berry takes a little bit of a black eye because of the Gragson DQ. If Gragson wasn’t DQ’d, he would’ve been the winner of the first three Dash 4 Cash events and have a chance at sweeping the four bonus awards, but instead, loses out on $100,000 and will not be eligible for the final award at Dover International Speedway next week.
With the DQ, everyone from 5th-40th moves up one spot and Gragson is only awarded one point.
Jeremy Clements earns his first top-five finish of 2021. It is his first top five since a third-place run at Pocono Raceway back on June 28, 2020.
Harrison Burton now rounds out the top 10, which will make up for giving up track position heading into the overtime restart after pitting from third place.
Landon Cassill moves up from a 12th-place finish to an 11th-place run, marking his best finish of 2021.
The drivers now competing for the final Dash 4 Cash bonus at Dover next Saturday are Allmendinger, Berry, Allgaier and Brandon Jones.
