Scott Bailey of Michigan, USA, survived the chaos in a wild race at the Talladega Superspeedway on Tuesday; it was the second of three races in the Round-of-12 in the Canadian eMotorsports Network NASCAR Series Playoffs.
The Fix Auto 250, the 21st race of the 2020 season, was the second win for Bailey; he last won on June 30 at the Sonoma Raceway.
Bailey won by 0.111 seconds as the field aggressively jostled for position behind him in a battle for important playoff points.
Rounding out the top-five on Tuesday was Mike Marini (Ontario, Canada), Trent Neilson (Indiana, USA), Kevin Daigle (Ontario, Canada) and Chad Hyder (Ohio, USA).
Bailey started seventh in the race and won the second stage, while Ryan Gibson (West Virginia, USA) won the first stage.
Here are the official results from Tuesday night at the Fix Auto 250 at the Talladega Superspeedway.
The series now shifts focus to the final race of the Round-of-12, the Pepsi 200 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
Darcy Ford (PEI, Canada) and Bailey currently are locked into the Round-of-8 having secured wins this round, with Gibson and Jose Mercado (Florida, USA) sitting comfortably above the cut-line. Marini has a 29-point advantage in fifth with sixth through eleventh only separated by 21-points.
