Theriault Wins 4th ARCA Race [VIDEO]
Maine's Austin Theriault has won again - his fourth victory in the ARCA Series and this one comes on a road course. His lead in the driver championship points race grows even larger.
Theriault, who drives the #52 car for Kenny Schrader Racking Team, started the Road America 100 Race in Wisconsin in 11th place but scores the win with his closest competition, Dalton Sargeant, finishing in fourth place. Theriault's 225 point lead over Sargeant will go higher.
Perhaps the most impressive part of Austin Theriault's wins is that they have come all kinds of tracks. The super speedway of Daytona, the short track in Elko, Wisconsin, the half-mile track in Madison, Wisconsin and now on the road course in Wisconsin.
And, because Theriault has racked up the most points in the various tracks, he wins the 'Bill France 4 Crown'.
"All the rain really presented some set-up challenges," Theriault said. "We were set up on slick tires…glad the rain didn't come back to us. Another great points day for us. Honored to be the Bill France 4 Crown champion. Once the leaders crashed, I thought we were going to come home third today. They were racing so hard for the win…each (Sargeant and Tifft) tried to brake a little deeper. From there, I just trusted in my spotters. I knew if someone came sailing in, at that point, I knew it was going to be for the win." - ARCA Press Release
