Gragson’s Number 9 Jr. Motorsports Chevrolet took the checkered flag in the Go Bowling 250 by .318 seconds over Justin Haley. John Hunter Nemechek was third, followed Justin Allgaier and Riley Herbst in fourth and fifth respectively. Daniel Hemric, Ty Gibbs, Brandon Brown, Harrison Burton and Jeb Burton rounded out the top-10.
“You guys are the best,” Gragson said over his team radio after the win. “This is for everyone who lost their lives on this special day, not for us.”
“I knew they had tires but the thing that really kept us alive were those two cautions at the end,” Gragson said. “Today’s not about this team or this win, it’s about everybody who lost their lives 20 years ago."
“I appreciate all your race fans for coming out. It’s really special to win here at Richmond. Beating Dale Jr. was pretty cool, I never thought I’d say that. We’re starting to get momentum at the right time.”
