Frank Kimmel (Photo Credit: Automobile Racing Club of America) "Really excited" for new qualifying procedure (TOLEDO, Ohio) - Defending Talladega Superspeedway winner Frank Kimmel is ready to defend again. As the all-time ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards winner with 80 victories, the 10-time series champ does a lot of defending.

But the 2014 season, to which Harvick applied his exclamation mark Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, was anything but. It was special and quite remarkable for the team, its owners and its driver. Moreover it was about the combined family that Stewart-Haas Racing had become in the last year, bringing in new faces like Harvick and Kurt Busch and talented behind-the-scenes people like eager-to-achieve crew chief Rodney Childers. It’s a family that has experienced rough times. Co-owner Tony Stewart, ... FULL STORY »
