The ARCA Series General Tire 300 night race at Five Flags Speedway started with Joel Kilburn #40 Coors Light Dodge capturing the Marc Cohn pole and recording the fastest lap of the race. Michael Knoll gained 18 spots for the most positions gained bonus. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Ellery Queen led 53 laps, with Chris Monroe going on to take the win. This week the drivers displayed good race-craft, resulting in 8 cautions with 5 lead changes as there were 6 disqualifications with no disconnects in a 23 car field ending with Chris Monroe capturing his 1st win of the season with Ellery Queen finishing 2nd, Robert Vining 3rd and Mike Schrader in 4th
This week the ARCA Series moves to the U S Cellular 250 night race at USA Int’l Speedway with the current points leader Chris Monroe looking for ways to maintain his lead in the series. The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?
We shall see when the green flag drops at 9:05 pm Eastern time.
The USA race will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track.
