INDIANAPOLIS – Mitchell native Chase Briscoe won his fifth Xfinity Series race of the season, taking the checkered flag in the Pennzoil 150 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in dramatic fashion.
Briscoe ran up front for most of the day, taking the lead for good with a daring three-wide pass with three laps left.
It’s the first time the Xfinity cars ran on the road course since moving to IMS in 2012 from Lucas Oil Raceway.
“Still not as prestigious obviously as winning on the oval, but to be the first to do something and winning on the road course here in a stock car,” Briscoe said. “It doesn’t matter what you race here. If you win at Indianapolis, it’s special, especially when you grow up literally an hour away from the place and came here as a kid.”
Winamac’s Justin Haley finished second to give Hoosier drivers a one-two finish.
