Herbst seeks 'balance' to clinch final Xfinity playoff spot
Maintaining the final playoff berth will be a challenge for Riley Herbst, who currently holds a one-point advantage over Parker Kligerman. While a win would secure Herbst’s spot, neither driver has won a race yet, so points will likely come into play. The driver with the strongest performance at Kansas will likely take the final spot. Despite the tough position, Herbst is determined to contend for the win and stay in playoff contention. After a strong start to the season, Herbst faced setbacks with crashes and engine failures, but he bounced back with a sixth-place finish at Darlington. Kansas Speedway is a track where Herbst has had success in the past, and he hopes to leave behind the bad luck and secure a victory there.
