ARCA Racing Series Turning 58 At Pocono

The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is headed back to a very familiar place, triangular in shape.

While Pocono Raceway is an all day drive from the ARCA home office, the 2.5-mile Pocono triangle feels much like home. That's because the upcoming event on Saturday, June 7 will mark the 58th appearance of the ARCA Racing Series on the 'Tricky Triangle' since 1983.

The event serves as the preamble for Sunday's Pocono 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series main event.

While ARCA's tenure at Pocono is impressive, so too is the list of winners over the years. It includes Tim Steele, Bob Schacht, Mike Wallace, Blaise Alexander, Kerry Earnhardt, Ryan Newman, Casey Atwood, Casey Mears, Scott Riggs, Frank Kimmel, Travis Kvapil, Justin Allgaier, Joey Logano, Ty Dillon and Chase Elliott, who won the Pocono ARCA 200 in 2013.

Early on in 2014, an interesting championship points battle is matching-up between current leader Grant Enfinger, who won the first three races of the year at Daytona, Mobile and Salem, 19-year-old Mason Mitchell (second in points) and 10-time series champion Frank Kimmel (currently third).

Also, Justin Allison, grandson of NASCAR legend Donnie Allison, is expected to file an entry in a second Team BCR Ford as a teammate to Enfinger.

Allison, however, will not get the opportunity to test at Pocono.

"Pocono is going to be so much different than any other track I'll drive on. I've heard how fun and exciting it can be, but I also know there's a lot to learn to be competitive. Knowing that we won't be able to test, we'll have to use our practice time wisely and provide the team with as much feedback as I possibly can.

"There really is no way to prepare for this type of track other than figuring it out myself. I don't do any sort of simulator racing or watch videos like some drivers may. I think it's best to just feel the track out myself. If something isn't working, I'll just go to my crew chief (Howard Bixman) or teammate, Grant Enfinger, for advice. They seem to always give me the best approach at what to do and not do."

On-track activity for the Pocono ARCA 200 includes one practice session on Friday, June 6 from 10:00-11:50 a.m., with Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell following at 2:30.

The Pocono ARCA 200 is live on FOX Sports 1 Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.

In addition to live coverage on FOX 1, ARCAracing.com will feature live timing and scoring of all the ARCA on-track activities.
