NASCAR moves to the Lone Star State this weekend, and the Xfinity Series race at Texas Motor Speedway is the SRS Distribution 250, set for 1:30 pm Eastern time on Saturday, May 21. Justin Allgaier was the winner last week in the Xfinity Series, taking the Mahindra ROXOR 200. Allgaier ended a drought of 34 straight races without a win, dating back to the Lady in Black in 2021. Noah Gragson came in second by 0.259 seconds to give JR Motorsports the 1-2 finish for the second straight race. JR Motorsports drivers have won three consecutive Xfinity Series races and three in a row at Darlington. A key moment came in the pit, as Allgaier came in third behind Gragson and Ty Gibbs at the end of Stage 2, but the crew got him out first during the pit stop in Lap 92. Let’s take a look at this weekend’s race as you plot out your online NASCAR betting decisions.
