Kimmel Extends ARCA Top-10 Streak To 36 At Talladega

Kimmel started 22nd and held his spot near the back of the lead lap for much of the race. On a late-race pit stop, Kimmel's Win-Tron Racing team gave him four new tires and Kimmel drove to a high position of fifth place during the late race rally.

"I got a little greedy at the end," Kimmel said. "I got up to fifth, but lost it a little there. It was a good finish for the kind of day we had."

Kimmel, in the No. 44 Ansell-Menards Toyota, said the car struggled at times on Saturday.

"We needed a little more speed," he said. "There wasn't much I could do by myself out there."

After serving a drive-through penalty for speeding on pit road during a green flag pit stop, Kimmel came back out, stayed on the lead lap, the was in contention for a top five finish at the end.

"I had lots of help then," he said. "There were a lot cars that were working with me."

By advancing 14 positions from his qualifying spot of 22, Kimmel took home his third CGS Imaging Hard Charger of the Race award of the season. He leaves Talladega third in the driver point standings.

Next up for Kimmel and the rest of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care at Toledo Speedway. The Sunday, May 18, race will be live on Fox Sports 1. The 52-year-old Kimmel has more wins (nine) than any other driver in ARCA Racing Series history at Toledo.

"Toledo is the site of my first ARCA race and my first ARCA win, so it's a very special place for me," Kimmel said. "I think it's the right size short track for the ARCA cars. It's fast enough to be exciting for the fans and wide enough to drive side-by-side and race hard. It's the perfect half-mile track."
