Who won the NASCAR race today? Full results, standings from 2024 Enjoy Illinois 300 in Madison

The importance of that last pit stop can be pivotal, as Ryan Blaney can certainly attest.

Blaney had led for much of the 2024 Enjoy Illinois 300, and had the advantage going down the stretch of the race. Instead, in a strange way to lose the lead, Blaney’s car ran out of gas just as he drove onto the last lap with the white flag waving.

Leading the charge of drivers ahead of Blaney was his teammate, Austin Cindric, who was searching his first win of the 2024 season. Not only would it be his first win of the season, but it would also mark the first time in his past 86 races he won a race.

Here’s a look at who won Sunday’s race in Madison, Ill.

Who won the NASCAR race today?

Cindric picked up his first win of the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season. He previously had one top-five finish and a pair of stage wins. 

Cindric also had an 85-race winless streak. By winning on Sunday, Cindric punched his ticket to the playoffs.

The race had appeared to be Blaney’s to lose as he continued to maintain a solid lead. However, when he ran out of gas, Cindric drove past him to claim the advantage and hold the lead over Denny Hamlin for the rest of the lap. Blaney fell all the way to 24th, the lowest place of anyone on the lead lap.
