CHANDLER SMITH DOMINATES IN
WINNING ARCA FALL CLASSIC 200

Chandler Smith (No. 20 Craftsman Toyota) dominated the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic presented by Meadow View/Salem Crossing at Salem Speedway on Saturday night, leading 199 of 200 laps en route to his second series victory of the season.

"This car was absolutely on rails tonight," Smith said. "The guys on this team are the reason why. They busted their butts on pit road and got us out of the pits first every time. All the action was behind us. In a perfect world, they would all be like this."

Smith held off Gus Dean (No. 32 Baker Distributing/Gree Cooling Products Chevrolet) on a one lap dash to the checkered after a slew of late race cautions bunched the field. 

Chase Purdy (No. 8 Bama Buggies Toyota) finished third, ARCA Racing Series championship leader Sheldon Creed was fourth, and Travis Braden (No. 27 MatrixCare/Consonus Healthcare/Liberty Village Ford) rounded out the top five.

Creed was able to add to his championship lead over Zane Smith (No. 41 LaPaz Margarita Mix/ICON Vehicle Dynamics Toyota), who was involved in a late-race crash and finished 18th.

"It was good for us because the car is in one piece and we added some points to the point lead," Creed said. "I was proud of my teammate Zane. He did what he needed to do. You race people the way you want to be raced."

Smith got into the back of Michael Self (No. 55 Sinclair Lubricants Toyota) and both crashed hard in turn four. The two had been involved in an incident earlier in the race. Smith pulled his car into the garage area where his MDM Motorsports team exchanged words with Self's Venturini Motorsports crew.

Self was less than impressed with what happened.

"I guess some drivers don't like to be raced hard," Self said. "I've worked hard for everything I have. I am racing the last two so we'll see how it works out."

There were six cautions for 43 laps which held the average speed to 70.380 miles per hour. The race took 1 hour, 34 minutes, 37 seconds to complete.

In the Meadow View/Salem Crossing 50, which served as a prelude to the ARCA 200, Kyle Hadley of Louisville passed Tony Conway for the lead on lap eight and never looked back in posting his first victory of the season.

Heath Helton, Conway, Brandon Deckard and Jeff Caudell rounded out the top five in that order.

Due to time restraints caused by live TV for the ARCA race and late race cautions the championship race for the Lucas Oil Great American Stocks was shortened to 42 laps.

A seventh place finish by Todd Kempf was good enough to wrap up the season championship for the Huntingburg, Ind., driver.  He finished seven points ahead of second-place Helton in the final season standings.

Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery closes out the 2018 season on Sunday afternoon, October 21st with the 30th annual Smoker Friendly Discount Tobacco Halloween 200.

SWANSON BECOMES WINNINGEST SILVER CROWN
DRIVER WITH JAMES/O’CONNOR VICTORY

Stewart Rides The High Banks To First Great American Stock Win

 By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Salem, Indiana.........On a night when he was in a class of his own on the Salem Speedway high banks, Kody Swanson put himself in a class of his own in the record books.

The Kingsburg, California native led the 59th "Joe James/Pat O'Connor Memorial" from start to finish in a landslide, perhaps the best on-track performance he's displayed of all 24 of his series victories, to surpass Jack Hewitt and become the USAC Silver Crown division's winningest driver.

Swanson set additional records, including notching his fifth consecutive series win, which passed the four-straight wins accomplished by Hewitt in 1986 and Tom Bigelow between 1975 and 1976.  His third-straight "James/O'Connor" triumph slotted him into exclusive company as only the second driver to win that many consecutively.  Pancho Carter won four-in-a-row between 1974 and 1977.

Twenty-one of those 24 wins have come behind the wheel of the DePalma Motorsports/Bob Hampshire-wrenched No. 63.  Hampshire was also the crew chief on Hewitt's win streak and the majority of his Silver Crown wins over the years.  Swanson is quick to credit his crew on the Lima, Ohio-based team.  It's something he doesn't take for granted.

"It's so hard to believe," Swanson exclaimed.  "It's what you dream about and what you wish for, but you never really give it a real chance.  Silver Crown cars have long been my favorite, so to be on that list is special, let alone be at the top.  But I didn't do it alone, though.  Not a single one."

After all the preparation and anticipation between races, the anxiousness and butterflies dissipate once the green flag drops.  It becomes all business.  Swanson was proficient right from the outset, setting quick time in qualifying, then jumping out to the lead at the start.

David Byrne was pretty much the lone challenger to Swanson's throne early on, driving through an impressive shower of sparks that engulfed the nighttime sky to second by lap four and was routinely challenging for the race lead throughout the first third of the 75-lapper.

Following a lap 15 yellow for a slowing Matt Goodnight, Byrne remained relentless on the lone restart of the night, diving inside Swanson multiple times to no avail before slotting back in as the leader of the high-wire act displayed by Swanson's pursuers, followed by Bobby Santos, Chris Windom and Jerry Coons, Jr.

Between laps 30 and 40, Swanson extended his lead from a mere half-second to a 2.5 second challenge as he cut through the lapped traffic with the precision of a laser-guided missile.

On the 53rd lap, Windom grabbed second from Santos and began shrinking Swanson's lead ever so slightly over the next handful of laps.  Yet, the shrinkage didn't last long, and Swanson opened up the lead once again, upping the interval to over six seconds and a near half-straightaway advantage that would simply not be overcome, challenging and lapping cars that were competing for the lead with him seemingly just moments earlier.

Swanson was flawless all night long, winning by just a tick under 8.5 seconds, and setting a new 75-lap track record in the process, over Windom, Santos, Coons and a career-best finish for Kyle Hamilton.

You couldn't script a better performance than Swanson showcased on a fairytale night in which the record books were cast aside, and a new edition was published.  From dirt to pavement, this team seems to be on the same page much more often than not and Saturday night's performance at Salem certainly showed.

"Salem is such a tough and challenging racetrack, not only physically as a driver, but man it's hard on everything to have a car that will be good the whole race," Swanson said.  "These guys go the distance for me every time and we do it together.  My wife and I drive to the shop and put in the effort with them.  As far as a team, we're all in it together.  That's what makes it so special."

There are many things that make Swanson appreciate the efforts of his crew, including his spotter, and wife, Jordan.  But it's the competition that keeps Swanson and crew challenging themselves to be better every time they hit the racetrack.

"Part of the reason every win is special in Silver Crown is because of who you're racing against," Swanson said.  "Everyone's here.  Our crew goes the extra mile and they're always trying something to get better because you know they are.  Every win is special because they're all great competitors and they're here to win just like any of us.  If you're going to beat them, you're going to have to put in the extra time and you're going to have to have a little bit of luck too."

17-year-old West Washington High School senior, Baden Stewart of Campbellsburg, Ind., picked up his first career victory on the high banks by outdistancing 19 other drivers to capture the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 50 for the Lucas Oil Great American Stocks in a prelude to the James/O’Connor.

Stewart, who was making just his ninth career start on the Salem oval in a car owned by Chuck Barnes, passed David Bayens for the lead with just eight laps remaining.  He then held off a hard-charging Will Kimmel at the end to secure the emotional victory.

Kimmel finished second with Heath Helton third, Tony Conway fourth and Tim Rivers fifth.

   

NASCAR WELCOMES ARCA TO THE FAMILY

Deal Affirms Commitment to Growth of Stock Car Racing in the US

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 27, 2018) In a move designed to strengthen a relationship that dates back more than 60 years, NASCAR announced today the acquisition of the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA).

Both NASCAR and ARCA, a Midwest-based sanctioning body for stock car auto racing, share a long history: ARCA founder John Marcum raced against Bill France Sr. and worked as a NASCAR official. More recently, the series has provided a valuable platform for talented drivers looking to make it to NASCAR’s national series.

“Our NASCAR family has long had a special connection with our friends at ARCA, and this is a logical step in demonstrating our commitment to the next generation of racers,” said Jim France, NASCAR vice chairman, executive vice president and member of the sport’s founding family. “This continues the legacy our sport was built upon and will deliver the great racing our fans expect.”

France was the driving force behind the merger of GRAND-AM and the American Le Mans Series in 2012, creating the modernized International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) in 2014.

ARCA began racing at Daytona International Speedway in 1964 at the behest of Bill France Sr. It kicked off its 66th season with 20-year-old Natalie Decker becoming the third female in the series to win a pole at Daytona and NASCAR Next alumni Michael Self winning the race.

The ARCA Racing Series will continue to operate under its current structure through the 2019 season. This year’s schedule of 20 races includes nine events at NASCAR national series venues, and three others at NASCAR Whelen All-American Series tracks – illustrating the bond between the two sanctioning bodies.

“We are proud of the history and tradition of the ARCA Racing Series and the relationship we’ve built over six decades with NASCAR,” said Ron Drager, ARCA president and grandson of John Marcum. “We look forward to the opportunity to be more fully integrated with NASCAR and help shape the future of our sport.”

The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards returns to Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery on Saturday night, Sept. 15th for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic.

ECKES HOLDS OFF HUNGRY PACK TO WIN
KENTUCKIANA FORD DEALERS ARCA 200

SALEM, IN, April 22 - It was one for the ages, especially for Middletown, N.Y.'s Christian Eckes who held off a hungry pack over the final 50 laps to earn his career-first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards victory Sunday afternoon at Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery.

Eckes, in the No. 15 JBL Audio Toyota for Venturini Motorsports, first fought off Zane Smith, then held back the nonstop hard charge from Chandler Smith to win the 103rd running of the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200.

"I can't believe this…I really can't," said Eckes. "This is the biggest win of my life. This is Salem. It's so hard to win here. I have no words to describe how relieved I am right now and how much this means to me."

Eckes's Venturini crew got him out first during the final stop during which the leaders took four General Tires for the thrilling run to checkers.

"This Venturini pit crew won this race…they got us out first. As a whole, we executed perfectly today. There have been so many…so many seconds. To finally get this victory…it's the biggest one of my career."

It also turned out to be a duel for the record books when General Tire polesitter Chandler Smith finally cleared Zane Smith with 30 laps to go and tracked down the eventual winner for the nail-biting battle to the checkers. Despite being inside of Eckes at least a half-dozen times or working over the leader's left rear corner, Eckes somehow maintained his composure and kept the lead as the two front-runners danced in and out of lapped cars to the end.

"It's hard…so hard to look up in the mirror and see that black car charging the way he did," Eckes said. "I have no idea how we held him off for so long…what a day. This is a genuinely tough track to get around…it's just a great day."

With the white flag in the air, Smith followed in the immediate tire tracks of Eckes as both charged into turn one inches apart. Then, in an instant, Smith's right-front tire went down as his No. 20 Smith General Contacting Toyota slid up the banking and smashed into the wall while Eckes sailed off toward the checkered flag.

Zane Smith, in the No. 41 LaPaz Margarita Mix Toyota, held off his MDM Motorsports teammate Sheldon Creed to finish second.

"We just managed tires all day," said Zane Smith. "We put on four at the end, and it was time to go. We were riding behind the 15 (Eckes) and got a little tight late, center. Really good points day…it was a lot of fun."

Creed, in the No. 28 United Rentals Toyota, came home third.

"We were just coasting all day," said Creed. "A lot of guys were trying to win it in the first 50 laps…crazy. We were just letting them go by. We just let them burn their stuff up. We got in position at the end, put four tires on it. We were really coming…just ran out of time."

JR Motorsports development driver Josh Berry looked sharp in his first ARCA start, finishing fourth in Chad Bryant's No. 22 Big Tine Ford.

"This place is definitely a challenge," said Berry. "You really have to manage tires…you wear 'em out so fast. Feel like you gotta run this place a couple times before you really get on to it. We got a little too tight when we put tires on it. It came down to who was the best in the end. Hope I get the opportunity to come back and try again."

Chase Purdy finished fifth in the No. 8 Bama Buggies Toyota. Riley Herbst was sixth, followed by Gus Dean seventh, Colby Howard eighth and Brandon Grosso ninth. Chandler Smith was credited with the 10th finishing position, one lap down.

Thirteen lead changes among four drivers kept things busy up front while Chandler Smith led the most with 117 laps led of 200. Eckes was second on the lap leader chart with 72. Five cautions slowed the pace for 40 laps.

Todd Kempf of Huntingburg, Ind., led flag-to-flag in winning the Ford Go Further 50 for the Lucas Oil Great American Stocks, that served as a prelude to the ARCA 200.

Rounding out the top five were Kyle Hadley (2nd), Tim Rivers (3rd), Baden Stewart (4th) and David Bayens (5th).
