The tighter limitations on Cup Series drivers participating in NASCAR’s other national touring series create more opportunities for those series’ regulars, but also increases their expectations. Chase Briscoe, for one, thinks he could win eight to 10 Xfinity Series races this season “if we do our job right.”
