Ty Gibbs earned his fourth road course win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, tying Ron Fellows and two NASCAR Cup Series champions Saturday.
Gibbs led the final 17 laps and beat Sam Mayer and A.J. Allmendinger. They account for four wins in the nine Xfinity Series road course races before Saturday.
After Saturday, Gibbs has now won two of the last 10 Xfinity Series road course races. As well as tying Fellows for fourth on the all-time Xfinity Series road course wins list Saturday, he tied Kyle Busch and Terry Labonte.
Gibbs has 15 road course starts. With the influx of road course races in the series, he racked up those starts in just three seasons.
Labonte raced at Road Atlanta in 1986 and at Watkins Glen every year from 1991-97. In eight starts, he never finished outside of the top-5, led laps in all but one race and only finished worse than second twice.
All of Ron Fellows’ 25 Xfinity Series starts were on road courses. From 1997-2001, he raced once a year and won 1998 and 2000-01.
Fellows returned in 2005 when the Xfinity Series returned to road course racing. He won in Montreal in 2008 before making his final start at Mid-Ohio in 2013.
Kyle Busch made 25 road course starts and earned his first win on one in 2008 in Mexico City. He wouldn’t win again on a road course until Watkins Glen in 2017.
Then, in 2021, Busch won at COTA and Road America, bringing his Xfinity Series road course wins total to four.
These four drivers trail A.J. Allmendinger (11 wins) and Marcos Ambrose and Austin Cindric (5 wins each) on the all-time Xfinity Series road course wins list.
