McReynolds Gets First ARCA Win
Brandon McReynolds passed Matt Lofton on the final lap at Talladega Superspeedway this evening to win the International Motorsports Hall of Fame 250, his first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards win in seven career starts.
The win was sweet redemption for the 20-year-old Turner Motorsports driver, who ran out of fuel and lost the lead on the final lap at Daytona International Speedway two months ago. McReynolds’ (No. 32 Turner Motorsports/Win-Tron Racing Chevrolet) drive to Talladega’s Victory Lane came 20 years and one day after Davey Allison’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win at the track – an effort led by crew chief Larry McReynolds, Brandon’s father.
Lofton (No. 16 Strutmasters.com Chevrolet) finished 0.195 second behind in second place, having led 56 total laps. Chad Hackenbracht (No. 58 Kindify Chevrolet) led 37 laps late in the race and provided most of the winning outside push for McReynolds before finishing third.
Tom Hessert finished fourth, and Steve Blackburn was fifth. Will Kimmel, Frank Kimmel, Brennan Poole, Brandon Davis, and Sean Corr completed the top 10.No Comment
