Michigan ARCA 200 Kicks Off 2013 Bill France Four Crown Championship


The diversity of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is, in part, what sets the 61-year-old tour apart from the rest. And ARCA's Bill France Four Crown award best captures the series' versatility that has become, over the years, a significant portion of the brand's signature.

This Friday's Michigan ARCA 200 at Michigan Int'l Speedway kicks off this year's Bill France Four Crown, an annual accolade that reaches back to 1984, when Davey Allison became the inaugural recipient of the year-end award.

The Four Crown schedule provides a link to the series' roots, featuring a diverse combination of tracks in any given season. This year's schedule includes Michigan Int'l Speedway (superspeedway), New Jersey Motorsports Park (road course), Springfield (mile dirt oval), and Salem Speedway (short track), where the Four Crown will conclude September 14.

"The Bill France Four Crown Award speaks to the very nature of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards," said Ron Drager, President of ARCA. "Being the full-bodied stock car series that runs on speedways, road courses, short tracks, and dirt ovals, this is the epitome of what our series is about."

Four Crown points are allocated without qualifying or in-race bonuses, and distributed in the same method as in the official series standings.

Frank Kimmel is the all-time Bill France Four Crown champion with six titles (2008, 2007, 2005, 2002, 2001, 1998).

Allison won the first Bill France Four Crown championship in his rookie season. Twenty-five years later another rookie, Parker Kligerman, would earn the honor driving for Cunningham Motorsports in 2009.

Practice for this year's Michigan ARCA 200 is from 1:05 p.m. through 3:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13. Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell is slated for Friday raceday morning at 10 a.m. The race is live on SPEED at 5:00 p.m. Friday. The event will also feature live timing and scoring of all on-track activity at ARCAracing.com.

MIS Race Rewind, 2012
In last year's ARCA race at Michigan, race fans were treated to a spectacular finish when 2012 ARCA Racing Series champion Chris Buescher and SCOTT Challenge Rookie of the Year Alex Bowman (driving the No. 22 Cunningham car) raced to the final stripe side-by-side, with Buescher edging Bowman by a length for the big win.
