Austin Hill steals Xfinity Series win at Atlanta in NASCAR Overtime

Austin Hill saved just enough fuel to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway in overtime, his second straight victory.

Austin Hill saved enough fuel and was in perfect position to capitalize when others ran out to score his second consecutive win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Hill’s Richard Childress Racing teammate, rookie Jesse Love, dominated the RAPTOR King of Tough 250 by sweeping the stages and leading 157 laps but ran out of fuel leading the field to green in NASCAR Overtime. Hill restarted third on the outside lane and pounced when his teammate stumbled to score the victory, remaining undefeated in two Xfinity races in 2024.

A handful of Fords ran out of fuel almost simultaneously with three laps to go in regulation. Stewart-Haas Racing teammates Riley Herbst and Cole Custer were running second and seventh, respectively, when their gas tanks ran dry. Ryan Sieg in another Ford came to a stop on the apron of Turns 3 and 4 out of fuel, necessitating the caution period that sent the race into extras.

Chandler Smith finished second ahead of rookie Shane van Gisbergen, who scored a career-best result. Sheldon Creed and Parker Retzlaff completed the top five.

Jeremy Clements, Anthony Alfredo, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Ryan Truex and Sammy Smith made up the rest of the top 10. After running out of fuel late, Love finished 12th.

The Xfinity Series will next race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 2 (5 p.m. ET, FS1, PRN Radio, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
