LAS VEGAS — Nine different drivers led laps in the Alsco Uniforms 300 Saturday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but it was Ty Gibbs who ultimately came away victorious in the NASCAR Xfinity Series event.
Gibbs survived an on-track retaliation attempt from fellow racer Ryan Sieg early in the race to lead the final six laps and hold off Noah Gragson for his first win of 2022.
“I want to apologize to the 39 (Ryan Sieg) for the contact that I made,” Gibbs said. “It wasn’t my best decision and I’m sorry to their whole group.
“Ryan’s family, they worked so hard, so I want to apologize to them. But let’s put this thing on red baby. Let’s go.”
Noah Gragson finished runner-up at his hometown track, leading five times for 52 laps.
Defending series champion Daniel Hemric finished third. Josh Berry, who won at Las Vegas in September, finished fourth. Justin Allgaier, who led a race-high 62 laps, finished fifth.
