It was Enfinger’s fourth victory of the season. The 29-year-old from Fairhope, Ala., came into the race second in the national points standings but moved into first. He had the second-fastest car in qualifying.

Wild to open with Avs

The Wild will open the 2014-15 regular season with a home-and-home series against the Colorado Avalanche, the Central Division champion the Wild beat in seven games in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs in April.

The teams will meet Oct. 9 at Xcel Energy Center and Oct. 11 in Denver.
