LONG POND, Pa. — Chase Briscoe held off Ross Chastain in overtime to win the crash-filled Xfinity Series at Pocono Raceway, the second of three NASCAR races at the track on Sunday.

Chastain, an eighth-generation farmer and fourth-generation watermelon farmer, and Briscoe swapped the lead in a fantastic battle down the stretch until — yes, another caution, the ninth — bunched the field and sent the race into OT.

Briscoe pulled away from there in the No. 98 Ford and won his fourth race of the season, and second in three races.

“Me and Ross, it was pretty fun,” Briscoe said. “He’s always one of the hardest guys to race against.”

Chastain hit the jackpot with his runner-up finish. He won the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash prize awarded to the highest finisher among four eligible drivers.

“It’s tough to be upset with second but I am,” Chastain said. “It’s the memories we take with us, not the money.”

Maybe, but the cash sure does help.

“It’s more money to take home and splurge,” Chastain said.

Jeremy Clements was third, followed by Myatt Snider and Michael Annett.

The 25-year-old Briscoe is now halfway to his preseason goal of eight victories.
