Chase Briscoe won the second race in NASCAR's tripleheader at Pocono Raceway on Sunday by taking the checkered flag in the Xfinity Series' Pocono Green 225 in Long Pond, Pa.

Briscoe passed Ross Chastain with two laps remaining and held on for his fourth Xfinity victory of the season.

The race extended two extra laps past the scheduled 90 due to a late caution that saw Chad Finchum hit the wall with five laps remaining.

Briscoe overcame a spin earlier in the race and caught Chastain coming out of Turn 2 before racing to victory.

Although Chastain finished as the runner-up for the second straight race, he did win the final $100,000 prize in the Xfinity Dash 4 Cash race-within-a-race.

Jeremy Clements, Myatt Snider and Michael Annett rounded out the top five.

After winning the Trucks series race earlier in the day, Brandon Jones crashed on the first lap of the Xfinity race and finished last in the 36-car field.
