Erik Jones wins Xfinity race at Dover for $100,000 bonus
DOVER, Del. (AP) Erik Jones has won the Xfinity Series race at Dover International Speedway, where he earned a $100,000 bonus from the series' Dash-4-Cash program.
Four drivers were eligible for the bonus, and Jones won it for the second time this season. There's one more Dash-4-Cash race, at Indianapolis this summer.
Jones led a race-high 76 laps in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and he was cruising to the win until a caution came out with 11 laps remaining because Brendan Gaughan spun. The yellow flag ate up Jones' lead over Alex Bowman, who pitted under the caution for four tires.
Jones was the leader on the restart with five to go, and Bowman was fourth. Bowman ended up finishing third, behind Darrell Wallace Jr., who was in a backup car.
