Frank Kimmel in search of record 10th ARCA win at Salem Speedway

Frank Kimmel (Photo Credit: Automobile Racing Club of America) (TOLEDO, Ohio) - Frank Kimmel has won more ARCA races at Salem than anyone else, reaching back to his first win there on April 19, 1998.

In the rumor mill, Darlington’s place on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule is tenuous. That being the case, it was gratifying to sit in on a Saturday noon press conference at the venerable speedway, where track president Chip Wile and NASCAR president Mike Helton talked about plans for the 2015 event. No, Darlington doesn’t have a specific date for next year’s race. That won’t be set ... FULL STORY »
