Wisconsin driver Paul Menard wins at Road America

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin driver Paul Menard took advantage of a lengthy late-race caution and held off Ryan Blaney to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America on Saturday.

Menard, a Sprint Cup regular, made a mid-race pit stop and was informed by his crew that he needed to save two gallons of fuel in order to finish the race without stopping again on the 4.048-mile road course.

Menard led for nine laps in the 180-mile race on NASCAR's second-tier series.

Brian Scott was third. Series points leaders Chris Buescher finished ninth.
