Austin Cindric used a page from NASCAR Truck Champion Sheldon Creed race winning strategy to his advantage in winning the Xfinity Desert Diamond Casino West Valley 200, and the 2020 Xfinity Championship at Phoenix Raceway. When faced with a late race caution that would send the race into overtime Cindric elected to get fresh tires for the green white checker finish.

Cindric was able to work his way forward at the final green flag and got around Noah Gragson on the last lap – driving away to a .162-second victory for his sixth win of the season, easily the most celebrated of his career.

“I’m speechless, I can’t believe it. You know the equipment you’re in is the best of the best and the people you’re working with are the best of the best,” “I watched Sheldon Creed do it last night, so why couldn’t we?” Cindric said about coming to pit road late. “Amazing effort by this 22 team. Brian Wilson and all the guys. Everybody back at the shop. There was a lot of work put into this race car.”
