MIAMI — A late caution flag gave Harrison Burton new life, and he took advantage.     

Burton took the inside line on the way to the lead in the final lap and held on to win the Xfinity Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, denying, among others, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Noah Gragson, who seemed to be in full command with seven laps remaining.     

Burton, Gragson and Austin Cindric were three-wide going into that last lap, and it was Burton, the 19-year-old son of former Cup star Jeff Burton, who wound up in front in a wild finish.
