Welcome to the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season! NASCAR fans were treated to a great one on Saturday evening (Feb. 19) that ended with NXS rookie Austin Hill taking his first series victory at Daytona International Speedway.

It ended just about as “Daytona” as anybody could expect, with Anthony Alfredo (No. 23) getting into the right rear of Myatt Snider, resulting in Snider’s No. 31 car getting turned on the last lap. Snider went end over end and caught air, which flung him into the catchfence on the backstretch. The engine was ejected during the crash, but Snider was able to walk out of the car afterward.
