Josh Berry passed Ty Gibbs with 28 laps to go and pulled away for his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series victory in a rain-delayed race at Martinsville Speedway. 

Berry gave himself enough cushion after getting by Gibbs to withstand challenges by Noah Gragson and Daniel Hemric. Berry was making just his 13th career start spread over five seasons and eight years. 

He became the second driver to gain his first victory at Martinsville, joining Brett Bodine, who did it in 1985. Gragson, Berry's teammate, finished second.
