Cindric completes Team Penske sweep with Xfinity win at Indy
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Austin Cindric took the lead early in the third stage at Indianapolis and held on Saturday for his NASCAR Xfinity Series-leading fifth victory of the season.
He beat pole-winner AJ Allmendinger by 2.108 seconds. Justin Haley was third.
It’s Cindric’s first victory at the Brickyard — and the second straight in 3 1/2 hours for Team Penske.
Will Power won the IndyCar race earlier Saturday on the track’s 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course.
Cindric, the son of Tim Cindric, Penske’s president, will try to make it three in a row when the Brickyard 200 is held on the same course Sunday.
