Buescher Leads Kimmel In Pursuit Of Fast Track Challenge Honors

Top ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards championship contenders Chris Buescher and Frank Kimmel are also the leading drivers in pursuit of the Fast Track High Performance Challenge. Just as in the main title chase, Buescher leads Kimmel by a slim margin for Fast Track honors with two races remaining.

In the Fast Track Challenge, points are tabulated from race finishes only, provided the competing driver carries the sponsor decal for the special award category - one of many in the series. Qualifying and lap leader bonuses are not included in Fast Track Challenge scoring. A race winner earns 200 points, a runner-up earns 195, and subsequent positions earn five fewer per spot.

Buescher and his No. 17 Roulo Brothers Racing Ford entry have earned 3140 in-race points in the first 18 races this season, partly on the strength of a series-high four race wins - and therefore, four 200-point scores.

Kimmel and his No. 44 ThorSport Racing Toyota entry have compiled 3115 in-race points in the first 18 races this season; he has won twice. The two drivers are the only competitors with top-10 finishes in 15 of 18 races so far this year.

Matt Lofton and the No. 16 Coulter Motorsports entry are third, at 2690 points. Tom Hessert and the No. 52 Ken Schrader Racing team lead Darrell Basham's self-owned No. 34 entry for fourth.

The Fast Track High Performance Driving School - which is owned and operated by 1995 ARCA champion Andy Hillenburg, headquartered in North Carolina, and hosts programs at Rockingham Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, and Michigan International Speedway - is the Official Driving School of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards.

Buescher is the defending race winner as the second dirt race of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season is up next, on Sunday, October 14 in DuQuoin, Ill. However, Kimmel enters the Illinois clay oval as a five-time winner.

Practice for the Southern Illinois 100 presented by Federated Car Care will begin at 10 a.m. and last for one hour, with Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell starting at noon. The 100-lap, 100-mile race will take place at 2 p.m. All times are Central, and revised from an earlier schedule.

ARCARacing.com will feature live timing and scoring coverage throughout the day, and ARCA Racing Network hosts Charlie Krall and Tim Clagg will deliver a live audio call for the race on the site. The race had been scheduled for Labor Day, but was postponed because of severe weather in southern Illinois.

2012 is the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards' 60th Anniversary Season, featuring 20 races at 18 tracks. The complete 2012 event schedule is available at ARCARacing.com.

The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards has crowned an ARCA national champion each year since its inaugural season in 1953, and has toured over 200 race tracks in 26 states since its inception. The series has tested the abilities of drivers and race teams over the most diverse schedule of stock car racing events in the world, visiting tracks ranging from 0.375 mile to 2.66 miles in length, on both paved and dirt surfaces as well as a left- and right-turn road course in its most recent season. This year, the series visited Alabama's Mobile International Speedway and Minnesota's Elko Speedway for the first time.
