The Atlanta track didn’t disappoint as an intense last lap three-way battle saw 19-year-old young No. 54 Toyota Supra for Joe Gibbs Racing driver Ty Gibbs secure his second win of 2022 season edging Ryan Sieg and Austin Hill in Nalley Cars 250.

Ty Gibbs won the race with a margin of 0.178 seconds from P2 finisher Austin Hill. The 19-year-old was able to lead only one lap in the entire race, the final lap of the race,  but he made it all worthwhile as Ty Gibbs with help of a push from A.J. Allmendinger slipped in between the leaders, Austin Hill and Ryan Sieg, and took the lead to himself in turn one.

Championship leader Noah Gragson had to settle in for a P26 finish after in the early part of second stages of race he got into the wall going which made him go down a lap. Though he fought back and made his way back into contention the big wreck finished off his chances of another strong finish.
