Ty Gibbs Wins Richmond Xfinity Race On Last-Lap Pass

The NASCAR Xfinity Series was the main attraction Saturday at Richmond Raceway and while John Hunter Nemechek shined in the first two stages, it was young Ty Gibbs who once again proved that he is the man to beat in the Xfinity Series in 2022, leading 113 laps on the road to claiming the victory in the ToyotaCare 250.

Gibbs outlasted Nemechek with a last-lap pass for his third win of 2022 and the seventh of his young career.

It took all of 25 starts for Ty Gibbs to reach seven wins, becoming the quickest to reach the mark and beating former Gibbs driver Joey Logano.

“We’re racing for wins and I had to take it. John Hunter ran a great race and good for Toyota finishing 1-2,” Ty Gibbs told Fox Sports 1. “Gotta do whatever I can to win.”

The rest of the top 10 filed out as such: Sam Mayer, AJ Allmendinger, Riley Herbst, Daniel Hemric, Josh Berry, Brandon Brown, Ryan Sieg and Parker Retzlaff.

Gibbs led 115 laps, while Nemechek led 135. The only remaining lap was led by Sam Mayer. There was only one natural caution, which was for debris.

” Gotta do whatever I can to win “. There it is, every Xfinity driver should realize this for sure now. It’s should be remembered starting with the first lap.

Until somebody does it to him! And then it’s “He can’t do that to me. Doesn’t he know who my grandpa is?”

“gotta do whatever I can to win”. All you have to do is drive the #54 Toyota to win like everyone else who drives it does.
