With the help of a contentious teammate spinout, Ty Gibbs crept into the Championship Four. On Saturday, he capitalized on the momentum to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship in Phoenix.

At Phoenix Raceway, Gibbs took the lead with 21 laps remaining and held off Noah Gragson to win.

According to NASCAR.com, after winning the race, Gibbs apologized once more for what he done the previous week. It was unsatisfactory because we had two chances to close the deal, and it was also foolish from an organizational point of view. I’ll do my best to express my regret while I’m sitting here, but that won’t make things better. I must correct my behavior.

“I thought my race today went well,” I said. We took some wise actions. Justin Allgaier and I were racing quite hard. I hope you fans enjoy the entertainment we put on. I appreciate everything you guys do.

Last week in Martinsville, Gibbs caused Brandon Jones to spin out on the last lap. A Joe Gibbs Racing teammate who might have made the Championship Four was eliminated as a result of the maneuver. Gibbs faced out against three other JR Motorsports drivers instead.

One of Gibbs’ fiercest critics, Gragson didn’t hold back when criticizing him before the race. On Saturday, he was unable to keep up with him.

ZANE SMITH, a NASCAR Truck Series driver, won the championship in an overtime thriller and remarked that “third time’s a charm.”

I felt like I would have gotten him if I was any closer, but I wasn’t, he added.
Following the race, Gragson and Gibbs shook hands.

In the race, Justin Allgaier was gaining ground. At one point, he attempted to go high, but Gibbs beat him to it. The third-place finisher was Allgaier.

He said, “Tonight was tough, but Ty had the finest car.” They were effective all night, adjusted well, and performed well on pit road. The fact that none of us from JR Motorsports won is probably the hardest aspect for me.

Justin Berry came in 13th place overall and fourth in the playoffs.
