FORT WORTH — Justin Haley, Josh Williams and Ronnie Bassett Jr. earned their highest finishes in the Xfinity Series to date Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway.

Haley, Williams and Bassett Jr. finishes seventh, 14th and 15th respectively in the My Bariatric Solutions 300.

Haley, in his first year with Kauling Racing, earned his fourth top-10 finish in six races at the 1.5-mile speedway. His previous-best was an eighth-place finish at Atlanta earlier this season.

The 20-year-old driver currently sits 12th in driver’s standings, holding the final playoff position by 10 points over Ross Chastain.

For Williams, Texas marked his second top-20 finish in 2019 with DGM Racing. His prior best was 16th at Las Vegas earlier this month.

“Really good day, really solid day, that’s where we should be finishing,” Williams said to The Racing Experts.

Williams leaves Texas 21st in driver’s points, 88 points behind Haley for the final playoff-eligible position.

Bassett Jr.’s race was his second career start in the series. He finished 32nd in his debut at ISM Raceway earlier this year.

“Being the first time at a mile-and-a-half track period, it’s pretty neat to come out and be able to run top-20, at least, and not have a scratch on the car at the end of the day,” Bassett Jr. said.

The next race for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway next Saturday.
