ARCA Racing Series coming for Fall Classic PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 07 September 2010 00:00

Short-track roots are calling.  The grand ole speedway awaits.  And at no other place is the ARCA Racing Series, presented by RE/MAX and Menards, more rooted than Salem Speedway where the series has been a staple for more than 50 years.
It started at the historical southern-Indiana high-banked short-track in 1955, and, for the most part, it’s never stopped.  Nor has the race fans hunger for one of the country’s most thrilling and worthwhile short-track classics.  ARCA Racing Series race event number 88 at Salem is on the way with the upcoming Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic on Saturday night, September 18.
As always, it’s loaded with stories of local drivers, far away flavor, rookies, veterans and a championship chase that is going down to the wire.
From the veteran side, not to mention the local angle, Frank Kimmel charges to the forefront.  The nine-time champ hails from nearby Borden, Ind., and like his father before him, he learned the ropes at Salem.  He’s also the all-time ARCA winner at Salem with an incredible nine victories.  There was a time over a three year span that Kimmel won an amazing five consecutive races at Salem.  But that was then, and this is now.  In fact, Kimmel has been winless in ARCA competition since visiting victory lane at Salem in September of 2008.
Despite the 39 race winless streak (heading into Monday’s race at the DuQuoin mile-dirt), Kimmel, who ranks second in career ARCA wins, finds himself squarely in the midst of the 2010 championship race.  A championship that will no doubt still be undecided when the teams head to Rockingham for the season finale in early October.
With five races remaining in the 2010 season (DuQuoin, Toledo, Salem, Kansas and Rockingham) just 25 points separate the top four drivers in the standings.  North Carolina’s Craig Goess leads the way (3,670) with Kimmel second (3,665) and Florida’s Patrick Sheltra, currently the hottest driver on the circuit and a former Salem winner, third (3,660).  New Jersey’s Tom Hessert is currently fourth (3,645).
How did the championship contenders do at Salem in April?  They were just about as close as the current standings, with Goess finishing second, Sheltra fourth, Hessert fifth and Kimmel eighth.
Steve Arpin of Fort Frances, Ont., drove the Venturini Motorsports-Tag Heuer Chevrolet to victory in the spring race for his first career ARCA win.
Sharing the high banks with the ARCA Racing Series on September 18th will be the Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stocks.
Spectator gates open on Saturday, Sept. 18 at 11:30 a.m., with Street Stock practice set to begin at 12-noon, followed by ARCA practice at 1:05 p.m.  Street Stock qualifications are scheduled for 3 p.m. with Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell for the ARCA cars at 4 p.m.  The popular on-track autograph session is scheduled to take place from 4:445 to 5:15 p.m. with the start of the Salem 50 for the Street Stocks set for 5:30.  The Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic 200 is scheduled for a 7:15 p.m. (EDT) start.
Advance tickets, both reserved and general admission, are currently selling for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic and may be purchased by calling 812-883-6504 or toll free 1-888-246-7223.

The Pirate faithful traveled to Clarksville last Friday night to witness the Mid Southern Conference match-up of their beloved Pirates and the Generals of Clarksville High School.
Pirate fans were ready to cheer on the team as Charlestown was ready to find another win over the Generals.
Charlestown found the endzone first just minutes into the ballgame. The Pirates would add another score before the Generals would fight back to tie the ballgame with less than two minutes before the halftime break.
The second half belonged to the Pirates as Charlestown’s defense would not give up a score in the second half and the offense rolled behind the arm and legs of sophomore quarterback Aaron Daniel.
Charlestown brought home the 44-14 Mid Southern Conference win to push their record to 2-1 and 1-1 in the conference race.
The Pirates found the scoreboard with just 2:50 ran off the clock as Daniel scampered 20 yards to the endzone. The two point conversion failed. Charlestown held the early 6-0 advantage at the 9:10 mark of the first period.
Charlestown pinned the Generals deep into their own territory and forced a three-and-out to give the Pirates the ball back on Clarksville’s 25 yard line.
After a nine play drive, Daniel kept the ball and dove one yard into the endzone for the second Pirate touchdown of the evening. Daniel hooked up with classmate Gage Brafford for the two point conversion. The score gave Charlestown the 14-0 advantage with 3:40 left in the opening quarter.
The Generals drove the ball down the field to end the first period with Charlestown still holding the 14-0 advantage.
On the first play of the second stanza General junior quarterback Wes Rittman hooked up with sophomore Nathaniel Jones for a six yard touchdown pass. The Pirates blocked the extra point attempt for the 14-6 advantage at the 11:55 mark in the first half.
Clarksville tied the ballgame late in the first half when Rittman hooked up with Aidan McEwen for a 20 yard touchdown pass. The two point conversion was good to knot the ballgame at 14 with 1:52 remaining in the second period.
It took the Pirates a mere 70 seconds to find the endzone as Daniel hooked up with senior Joey Wilson  for an eight yard touchdown pass with 42.8 seconds left in the half. Daniel found the endzone for the two point conversion to give the Pirates the 22-14 advantage prior to the halftime break.
And the Pirates never looked back.
Charlestown took a mere five plays to find paydirt to begin the third period as Daniel rambled 39 yards to the endzone at the 9:36 mark. Daniel then hooked up with Wilson for the two point conversion for the 30-14 Pirate advantage.
Daniel would find the endzone one more time in the quarter as he dove from two yards out to the goal line at the 3:16 mark. Daniel then ran in the two point conversion for the 38-14 Pirate lead to end the third quarter of play.
The Pirates would end the scoring for the night as sophomore Tyler Odle found some daylight and sprinted 75 yards to the goal line. The extra point attempt failed at the 9:42 mark in the ballgame.
Charlestown recorded the 44-14 Mid Southern Conference win over the home-standing Generals of Clarksville.
“Aaron (Daniel) stepped up his play tonight. Our fullback Ethan Bowen stepped up tonight and blocked really well. Our offensive line blocked really well tonight,” stated Pirate head coach Jason Hawkins. “Our defense played really well tonight, especially in that second half.”
Charlestown will travel to Mid Southern Conference foe the Eastern Musketeers this Friday night. The kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
