Taking a late lead, Justin Allgaier, driving the No. 7 Good Humor throwback tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr., scored his second win of the season and handed JRM its 54th Xfinity Series win.

DARLINGTON, S.C. (May 8, 2021) – Justin Allgaier took a late lead at Darlington Raceway, survived a pair of restarts and held off charges from teammates Josh Berry and Noah Gragson to score a memorable win at the historic facility. Allgaier, driving the No. 7 Good Humor throwback tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr., scored his second win of the season and handed JR Motorsports its 54th Xfinity Series triumph.  

“Man, with the fans being back at the racetrack, this is special,” a thrilled Allgaier said after the race. “Our Good Humor Ice Cream Camaro wasn’t as good as what we wanted all day. The guys down in the pits, they just kept fighting. I think the end of the race proved it; to have all those JRM Chevy’s up there battling for a win, it really was special. I couldn’t be more appreciative of this race team.”

Berry came home with a runner-up finish, and Gragson’s fourth-place effort resulted in the Las Vegas native’s third straight Dash 4 Cash bonus.  Allgaier, Berry and Gragson will all be eligible for the final Dash 4 Cash payout next week at Dover International Speedway.

Michael Annett rounded out the day with a seventh-place finish.
