Saving the best of the best for last with newly-crowned ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards national champion Chase Briscoe and SCOTT Rookie of the Year Dalton Sargeant to finish out the season on "Inside ARCA" today at arcaracing.com.
Both Briscoe and Sargeant clinched their respective titles last week at Kansas Speedway where Briscoe picked up his sixth series win of the 2016 season. Sargeant was also very much in contention for the win, leading inside of 25 laps from the finish when ignition issues dropped the Boca Raton, Florida driver back in the finishing order.
Both drivers had phenomenal seasons - Briscoe in the No. 77 Big Tine Ford for Cunningham Motorsports, and Sargeant in the No. 55 TRD-Windows 10 Toyota for Venturini Motorsports.
While Briscoe led the way in several Special Award categories, including Menards Pole by Ansell, Short Track championship by Protect Plus, Bill France 4 Crown, Valvoline Lap Leader and S&S Volvo Laps Completed, the Mitchell, Indiana rookie certainly didn't sweep the board.
Sargeant not only earned the SCOTT Rookie of the Year honors, he picked up the prestigious General Tire Superspeedway Challenge championship for car owner Billy Venturini.
Both drivers will officially receive their respective honors at the 64th annual national championship awards banquet at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis Saturday night, December 10. The big show runs in conjunction with the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) trade show.
Don’t miss the season finale for “Inside ARCA” on the way Thursday here at arcaracing.com. Join show hosts Charlie Krall and Tim Clagg beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. The show runs in a continuous loop throughout the day up until midnight.
