Rookie Poole Leads Veteran Kimmel In Pursuit Of ARCA's Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge Title; Wraps At Kansas Speedway Oct 19

Brennan Poole still has his eye on the big prize - the 2012 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards national championship. Currently third in points overall, he trails current point leader Chris Buescher by 175 points with just two races remaining in ARCA's 60th Anniversary Season.

While his championship possibilities may seem like a long shot, there are other accolades well within his grasp, including ARCA's prestigious Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge title, which will be decided in the Kansas Lottery 98.9, the season finale at Kansas Speedway October 19.

"We're still going after the main championship, and still believe we can accomplish that main goal," Poole said. "We know we'll need some help from Chris Buescher and Frank Kimmel, and then we'll need near perfect days at DuQuoin and Kansas. If we run well at both, we'll just let it all fall where it will fall.

"If we're not able to win the overall title, the Superspeedway championship would be a great title to have in your hip pocket."

Poole (Venturini Motorsports) currently leads in the pursuit of the Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge Championship by 95 points over Kimmel (ThorSport Racing). If the recent test at Kansas is an indicator of Poole's chances of winning ARCA's superspeedway title, then The Woodlands, Texas rookie is completely in the driver's seat.

"We were actually fastest in the morning and afternoon sessions (at Kansas). We ran really well. The car was well balanced, and I know my guys on this Venturini Motorsports crew will put me in a position to, not only run up front, but to win.

"We've been good all year on the speedways, winning at Pocono, we've had some second place finishes, some poles. I'm really excited to get to Kansas just because it's a speedway, and we have a lot of fun on those tracks.

"The new pavement at Kansas is incredible. It's got so much grip and it's just really, really smooth. I think the cars will be moving around a lot through the corners trying to find that magic spot. It's going to be a lot of fun to watch, and a lot of fun to drive.

"We need to finish up strong, and if we do, we'll win that Superspeedway title. It would definitely be a special thing to win. It shows you're the best on the superspeedways, and considering all the speedways that ARCA races on, that says a lot."

The Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge title consists of race points accumulated on all of ARCA's Superspeedway venues, including Daytona, Talladega, Pocono, Michigan, Chicagoland and Kansas.

Former Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge champions include Davey Allison, Bill Venturini, Bob Keselowski, Jeff Purvis, Tim Steele, Kimmel, and Buescher, to name a few.

Practice for the Kansas Lottery 98.9 is scheduled from 9-11:15 a.m., followed by Menards Pole Award Qualifying presented by Ansell at 5:35. From there, it's a quick tech and turnaround for the race, scheduled to get the green flag at 7:30. The ARCA Kansas Lottery 98.9 is live on SPEED. All times are Central.

ARCA Celebrating 60th Anniversary Season
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.
