Tied with 1 each are Fred Campbell, Joey Coulter, Andy Hampton, Iggy Katona, Bob Keselowski, Justin Lofton, Matt Merrell, Joey Miller, Bob Senneker, Harold Smith, Les Snow, Scott Speed, Nelson Stacy, Ramo Stott, Don White.

Berlin ARCA 200 Race No. 25 for ARCA at Berlin in 60th Anniversary Season The Berlin ARCA 200 presented by Hantz Group marks the 25th appearance of the ARCA Racing Series at Berlin. The first seven ARCA races at Berlin (1958-1964) were run on the old half-mile, high-banked dirt oval prior to running on the current paved configuration. It is the 15th of 20 events on the 2012 schedule, the 60th Anniversary Season.

Chase Elliott Aims at Berlin
Chase Elliott, the 16-year-old son of NASCAR champion Bill Elliott, is entered for the Berlin ARCA 200 presented by Hantz Group. Elliott, in the No. 9 Aaron's Dream Machine/HendrickCars.com Chevrolet, finished 10th in his ARCA Racing Series debut at Mobile Int'l Speedway after qualifying second. The second generation driver also finished fourth earlier this year at Salem Speedway and finished a career-best second at New Jersey Motorsports Park in his road course debut. Elliott's 2012 plans also include ARCA starts at Madison Int'l Speedway in August, and Salem in September.

Keselowski & Keselowski Coming Back to Berlin
Brian Keselowski, who won back-to-back ARCA races at Berlin in 2006 and 2007, has filed an entry for Saturday's Berlin ARCA 200. Keselowski is the son of 1989 ARCA National Champion and Berlin ARCA winner (1986) Bob Keselowski. Bob and Brian are the only father and son winners of the Berlin ARCA 200. Brian's dad Bob will serve as his crew chief in Saturday's race. In addition to Brian's ARCA victories at Berlin, he also won at Salem Speedway in 2007. In 34 ARCA Racing Series starts since 2004, he has nine top-five finishes and 21 top-10s.

Veteran Kimmel Back on the March; Snaps Long Winless Streak Frank Kimmel (Clarksville, Ind.) turned 50 years young in late April, yet the nine-time Series champ is clearly still on his game. Kimmel finally snapped a winless streak that reached back to September of 2008 with his victory at Lucas Oil Raceway two weeks ago. Kimmel went 75 races between victories. Kimmel's first win came in his 53rd career start back in 1994, meaning his first winless streak was 52 races. The two streaks lasted about the same amount of time. Between July 1, 1990 (Kimmel's ARCA debut) and May 22, 1994 (his first ARCA win), 1421 days transpired. Between September 13, 2008 (win No. 74) and July 27 (win No. 75), 1413 days passed. Kimmel is also right back in the championship hunt.

Championship Points Battle Brewing Big to Berlin
Brennan Poole, (The Woodlands, Texas) has reclaimed the ARCA championship points lead following his second-place finish last Saturday at Pocono Raceway. However, not by much. Poole leads Chris Buescher (Prosper, Texas) by just 15 points. Frank Kimmel (Clarksville, Ind.) trails in third, 80 points out of first. Alex Bowman (Tucson, Ariz.) is fourth, 200 behind the leader and Chad Hackenbracht (New Philadelphia, Ohio), the winner last Saturday at Pocono, is currently fifth, 320 from first.

Kimmel Racing Fielding Car for Berlin Track Champion Brian Campbell Kimmel Racing, which fields ARCA cars for Will Kimmel and Korbin Forrister in 2012, will be fielding the No. 68 car at Berlin for local favorite Brian Campbell (Wyoming, Mich.), the 2010 Menards Pole Award winner at Berlin. The car was prepared at the Kimmel Racing shop in Clarksville, Indiana, and will be crewed by the Kimmel Racing team during the Berlin ARCA 200. Brian's father Fred Campbell, a 10-time Berlin late model track champion, won the ARCA race at Berlin in 2002. In 2011, Brian joined his father as a late model track champion at Berlin.

14 Races, 10 Different Winners, Bowman Only Three-Time Winner in 2012 Chad Hackenbracht became the 10th different winner in 14 races so far this season with his victory at Pocono Raceway Saturday afternoon. The first six events in 2012 produced six different winners: Bobby Gerhart at Daytona, where he picked up a record eighth career Daytona triumph, Cale Gale at Mobile, Alex Bowman at Salem, Brandon McReynolds at Talladega; point leader Chris Buescher at Toledo, and Brennan Poole at Elko. However, Poole became the first repeat winner in 2012 with his dominant win at Pocono in June. Buescher, as a result of his thrilling victory at Michigan, became the second repeat winner of 2012. Bowman became the third repeat winner of 2012 with his victory at Winchester. Bowman then became the only three-time winner so far on tour when he added Iowa to his victory column. Roxton Pond, Quebec's Andrew Ranger (New Jersey Motorsports Park), Kevin Swindell (Chicagoland Speedway) and Frank Kimmel (Lucas Oil Raceway) are also among the different winners in 2012.

Grueling/Versatile Late Summer Stretch for ARCA Warriors
The event on the New Jersey Motorsports Park road course kicked off a grueling and very versatile stretch for the ARCA teams, depictive of the tour's diversity. This particular stretch started July 1 on the New Jersey road course and will end on the Salem short track on September 15. In addition to the New Jersey road course and Salem short track, the tour will travel in between to superspeedways at Chicagoland, Pocono and Kansas, short tracks at Iowa, Lucas Oil Raceway, Berlin, Madison and Salem, and two late-season mile dirt tracks at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield and the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds in DuQuoin, Ill. During the span, the ARCA tour will race at 10 different tracks over an 11 week period. Kansas will wrap the 2012 season on October 19.
