In 2005 Mallory Ignition became a partner in the ARCA Racing Series. Six years later at the Michigan International Speedway, ARCA drivers ran their 750,000th combined lap using the series-issued Mallory CT Pro ignition system.

To top it off, the ARCA series ushered in the milestone with some of the most exciting action that we've seen this year. In the final lap, season points leader Ty Dillon passed Max Gresham to win his 4th ARCA race in 2011. Mallory would like to congratulate Ty and the SKF Chevrolet team on another thrilling win. Mallory would also like to commend the numerous drivers who showed their appreciation to the fans at special meet and greets on Thursday and Friday. Among the drivers who attended were Robb Brent, Benny Chastain, Sean Corr, Joey Coulter, Maryeve Dufault, Tim George Jr. (who won at Pocono on 6/11/11), Chad Hackenbracht, Hal Martin, Chad McCumbee, Josh Richards, and Bryan Silas. Though not entered in this weekend's race, Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 winner Brennan Poole and rookie driver Jared Marks joined the list of drivers who appeared for the fans. Top ten drivers, Tom Hessert, Grant Enfinger, Matt Merrell, 9 time ARCA champion Frank Kimmel and lap 100 rivals Ty Dillon and Max Gresham also connected with Michigan fans. Congratulations to all the racers and drivers and thank you for showing off Mallory performance.
