Arca 2017 Banner

TOLEDO, Ohio (Nov. 10, 2016) – The 65th consecutive season for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is set in stone, as Series officials released the 2017 schedule Thursday to include 20 race-dates across 13 states.

Another healthy mix of superspeedways, paved short tracks, dirt tracks and a road course will highlight the 2017 tour, including returns trips to Elko Speedway in Minnesota and Road America in Wisconsin. ARCA raced at the Elko short track 2012-2014 and once at the Road America road course in 2013.

“We are pleased to announce our full and complete 20-race, 2017 schedule,” said ARCA President Ron Drager. “From superspeedways recognized as among the most famed tracks in the world, to historic short tracks, to mile dirt tracks and road course venues, the schedule highlights the long standing diversity of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. We’re especially pleased to welcome back to the schedule Elko Speedway and Road America.”

The series will kick off the 2017 campaign with the 54th running of the Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona February 18 which precedes NASCAR's Unlimited later that night. For the sixth consecutive year, the ARCA Racing Series will crown the Series champion at Kansas Speedway where ARCA's race season concludes under the lights October 20.

In between Daytona and Kansas is one of the most diverse schedules in racing with race events on eight superspeedways, nine paved short tracks, two dirt tracks and one road course.

The series will race at conjunction event venues with all three of NASCAR's top-tier divisions including Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Trucks, as well as the Verizon IndyCar Series, the USAC Silver Crown Series and the ARCA CRA Super Series.

Prior to the 2017 season, series officials will celebrate the 2016 season one final time with the annual national championship awards banquet at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis Saturday, December 10.

Braden's Wild Finish Results in Winchester 400 Win

Coughlin Wins 2016 Series Championship


Salem, IN (October 10, 2016) – The Winchester 400 is a grueling 400 lap event that tests drivers and their equipment but Sunday’s 45th Annual Winchester 400 on the famed High Banks of Winchester Speedway will mainly be remembered for the last five laps that saw a driver that went from looking like he was out of contention to victory lane. Those final laps and the win did not come without a lot of controversy.

The wild finish started when second place running Stephen Nasse got into leader Raphael Lessard, Lessard then got back into Nasse slowing both cars and allowing Dalton Sargeant to dive low underneath both cars. Sargeant and Nasse made contact resulting in Nasse making hard contact into the wall and collecting Lessard, ending both drivers days on lap 395. Sargeant was sent to the tail of the lead lap cars for being involved in the yellow setting up the dramatic five lap finish.

During the red flag while the track crew cleaned up the Nasse and Lessard wreck, two-time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion Travis Braden’s car was pushed to pit road, unable to start because of a dead battery. The crew frantically went to work and managed to get the battery changed and get Braden back on the track just before the restart. The lap cars at the back of the field all waved Braden by, giving Braden the opportunity to start at the tail of the four remaining cars on the lead lap.

2016 Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Champion Eddie Van Meter had inherited the lead for the restart with 2016 Senneker Performance Rookie of the Year Dalton Armstrong in second. Sargeant was in third and Braden in fourth. Van Meter jumped to the lead while the other three battled behind him. Van Meter pulled out to a three car lead with Armstrong and Braden battling behind him. Braden caught Armstrong in turn three and made a daring pass on the bottom making contact with Armstrong and getting the second position. Braden set his sights on trying to run down Van Meter. Van Meter took the white flag and looked to be on his way to getting the biggest victory of his career until Braden caught and passed Van Meter in turn two after more contact. From there Braden got the biggest late model win of his career.

“It’s a miracle that I’m standing here in victory lane, “remarked Braden. “The battery was going dead there at the end, we got lucky that those guys wrecked and caused the red flag and we could get the battery changed. We rode around a lot in the middle of the race and decided to save our tires until late in the race. That strategy paid off, I had better tires than anyone else on that last restart and just did what I had to do to get the win, any other driver would have done the same thing.”

Tempers flared in victory lane after the race first between Van Meter’s crew and Braden’s crew, then Armstrong’s crew also joined in, showing how bad teams want to win the famed Winchester Rifle Trophy traditionally awarded to the winner of the Winchester 400.

Braden added, “I have to thank this entire Platinum Motorsports team, they worked their butt’s off to give me the chance to get this win, I’m just the lucky guy who gets to sit behind the wheel. To get this win and Friday night’s win in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour race at this race track is awesome!”

For their efforts on pit road Braden’s crew picked up the PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Race Award. Braden came from his 15th place starting position to get the win picking up a Hoosier Racing Tire Performance Award and the Hamner Racing Engines Hardcharger Award and getting a Fury Race Cars Lap leader Bonus for leading lap 400.

Van Meter had never finished higher then eighth in his previous nine Winchester 400 starts, but with the help of two Lucky Dog Free Passes, Van Meter was able to be up front for the wild finish.

“He door slammed me pretty good there to make the pass, but at the 400 probably anybody would have to, but it’s still heartbreaking,” remarked Van Meter. “That’s racing, tempers flare, and there will be another day. All the crew worked real hard, we had great support from our sponsors, we’re just blessed to be able to come here and run second.”

Van Meter would pick up the Fluidyne High Performance Cool Under Pressure Award for being able to race his way to the front and be in position to get his second place finish. Van Meter also picked up $100 in lap Leader bonus money.

Sargeant would finish in third place, he led from lap 273 until lap 348 picking up $1900 in lap leader bonus money and picked up a $1000 Travelers Bonus.

Armstrong would finish in fourth place, he picked up the Senneker Performance Rookie of the Race Award and the AR Bodies Cool Move of the Race Award for his save after contact from Braden. Armstrong was the JEGS/CRA $100,000 Super Late Model Triple Crown Points Champion, earning a $5000 bonus for that title. Armstrong had already locked up the 2016 Senneker Performance Rookie of the Year prior to the race. Armstrong finished second in the ARCA/CRA Super Series Championship points.

Cody Coughlin would finish in fifth place and claim his first ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS Championship. Coughlin persevered through a rough day to get the top five finish and the Championship. First loose lug nuts created a bad vibration which cost him a lot of spots in the running order after the first pit stops after leading the event from lap 21 to lap 46. Then contact from another car put him hard into the turn four wall causing a lot of damage to the right side of the car. Coughlin was able to bring it home and claim his Championship, becoming the only driver to win that Championship and the JEGS/CRA All- Stars Tour Championship in the same season.

“I really wanted to win the 400, I thought we had the car to get it done, but I realized quickly that wasn’t going to happen,” remarked Coughlin. “We looked at the big picture and did what we deeded to do to win the Championship. I am so proud of my crew and how hard they worked. I also have to thank my family for their great support. My goal was to be the first to win the two top CRA Championships in the same season and we did it!”

Coughlin picked up the Sweet Move of the Race Award for his top five finish working through the issues to secure the Championship. Coughlin also received $650 lap leader bonus money.

William Byron led the most laps, 127 total before contact with the wall resulted in broken suspension parts ending his day early. Byron picked up $3175 in lap leader bonus money. Byron also picked up the VanDoorn Racing Development Lap Leader Award. KBM teammate Christopher Bell led 99 laps and picked up $2475 in lap leader bonus money. Lessard led 47 laps and picked up $1175 in lap leader bonus money. Brandon Oakley led the first 20 laps of the Winchester 400 from his pole starting position. Oakley picked up $500 in lap leader bonus money and the EDCO Welding Fast Qualifier Award and its $400 bonus.

The next event for the ARCA/CRA Super Series will be the 2016 CRA Awards Banquet which will take place on Friday, January 6th in Indianapolis at the Crowne Plaza Downtown at Union Station. More information on the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS is available at www.cra-racing.com.

Tons of Talent Already Entered for the 45th Annual Winchester 400


Salem, IN (September 20, 2016) – Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS have released some of the drivers names already entered for the upcoming 45th Annual Winchester 400, that will be contested on the famous High Banks of Winchester Speedway on Sunday, October 9th. This event, sanctioned by the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, is one of the premier super late model events in the country and the entries received to date reflect that, with a very talented group of drivers already set to compete in that event.

Current ARCA/CRA Super Series point’s leader Cody Coughlin leads a strong group of CRA competitors entered for the 45th Annual Winchester 400. Coughlin drove to victory lane in the series last event on Labor Day Weekend on the High Banks of Winchester Speedway, it was Coughlin’s series leading fourth win so far this season. Coughlin finished second to Erik Jones in last year’s Winchester 400 and looks to be one of the early favorites to claim the famous Winchester Rifle Trophy for winning the Winchester 400.

Briscoe out-duels Sargeant on final restart at Winchester for career-first ARCA win

WINCHESTER, Ind. (June 26, 2016) - Chase Briscoe got the best of Dalton Sargeant on the final restart inside of 30 laps to go, then drove away to win the Herr's Potato Chips 200 Sunday afternoon at Winchester Speedway.

Briscoe It was Briscoe's career-first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards victory in his 12th series start.

"This feels so good...I've been so frustrated," Briscoe said. "To finally get my first win, and especially in my home state is just incredible," added the Mitchell, Indiana rookie.

Debris on the frontstretch brought out the final caution and set up the final restart coming to the 177th lap.

Briscoe, in the No. 77 Big Tine-Cunningham Motorsports Ford, went side-by-side with Sargeant for a full three laps before pushing his car ahead of Sargeant's No. 55 TRD-Windows 10 Toyota. Sargeant fell back 10 lengths at the checkered flag, finishing second.

"Car got really tight," Sargeant said. "I gave it my all...I just got beat. I just want to thank everyone at Venturini Motorsports. This team did everything it needed to win this race...we just came up one short. Those final restarts didn't help."

The heat probably didn't help either with temperatures reaching well into the 90s.

"This one was definitely harder than most," Briscoe said. "I was getting worn out...it was so hot. You have to be up on the wheel every lap here. We almost threw it away on those final restarts. This was our race to lose."

Briscoe nearly did just that, giving the lead up to Sargeant in the back half of the race before getting it back for the final 24 laps.

"I can't thank my car owners Briggs Cunningham and Kerry Scherer enough," Briscoe continued. "Last year, I was catching tires for Cunningham Motorsports. Now we're leading the points. I feel like the next win is going to come a little easier now."

Briscoe, who earned his fifth Menards Pole presented by Ansell Saturday, led the first 118 laps, pulling away by as much as a full straightaway before Sargeant reeled him in. Sargeant followed Briscoe's rear bumper for several laps before getting underneath the eventual winner coming off turn two. Sargeant finally cleared Briscoe off turn four to lead the 119th lap. From there, Sargeant pulled away by a near straightaway, leading up through the 176th lap. Sargeant looked like he was on his way to victory lane; however, three late-race restarts kept bringing the field back together, and kept Briscoe's hopes alive.

Sargeant managed to out-duel Briscoe during two of the three restarts, but lost the battle on the third and final restart in the closing laps.

Kyle Weatherman, who started at the back for unapproved adjustments, battled all day for a hard-fought third-place finish in the No. 98 St. Charles Glass Chevrolet.

"Long, hard race," Weatherman said. "Starting in the back made it a lot harder. I thought we had the best car on long runs but we were giving up too much in the beginning. Just something we need to work on. Thanks to Mason Mitchell Motorsports for the opportunity."

Matt Kurzejewski finished fourth in the No. 52 Ansell-Menards Toyota.

"We had an awesome car the first half of the race," Kurzejewski said. "But I think everyone else got a little better than us. We weren't as good on the long runs as we needed to be, but we'll take this finish and build on it for the next one."

Tom Hessert finished fifth in the No. 25 Cherry Hill Classic Cars Toyota. Josh Williams was sixth in the No. 6 Circle Track Warehouse Chevrolet, the last car on the lead lap. AJ Fike, Will Kimmel, Dakoda Armstrong and Josh Reeves completed the top 10 finishers, respectively.

Iowa Speedway will host the next event for the ARCA Racing Series with the ARCA 150 presented by Casey's General Stores July 9, live on FS2. ARCAracing.com will feature live timing and scoring, and live chat.
