Tension in Toledo, Results from the ARCA Menards 200
This past weekend drivers were put to the test with wet conditions on a short track in Toledo, Ohio for the Menards 200. On lap 189, 9-Time ARCA Champion Frank Kimmel was running first when the young Ty Dillon took the lead after moving Kimmel off the white line into a spin.
This would be the last lead change of the race as Dillon held off Grant Enfinger to win his second ARCA Series race of 2011. A heated Kimmel, who was the leader for 125 laps, confronted Dillon in victory lane over the incident. Kimmel finished 9th to remain in the top 3 of the points standings for the season just behind Dillon and Matt Merrell, who took 3rd at Toledo. Finishing just behind Kimmel was Kenzie Ruston in her ARCA debut at 10th place. The 19 year old rookie had lead the race for 15 laps.

As the season continues, ARCA heads east, taking the racing action and the Mallory CT Pro Ignition Tray to the "garden state" for the ModSpace 150. We'll be providing coverage, as always, to keep you informed as the excitement unfolds.
