Charlotte, N.C. (July 9, 2016) - The second-half of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season officially kick-off over the weekend with the ABC Supply Co. 150 at Iowa Speedway. The ARCA Series’ eleventh event of the twenty race schedule was run under the lights Saturday night at Iowa’s 7/8 mile paved course. Dalton Sargeant, who struggled most of the day during practice, qualified 11th, but started 29th after crew chief Billy Venturini elected to make post-qualifying changes to Sargeant’s No.55 Toyota Camry powered by Windows 10 Camry to better his car for the 150-lap race.
“I’m extremely happy with today’s finish after the rough beginning we had during practice and qualifying,” said Sargeant. “After struggling during practice and qualifying we opted to make some changes which forced us to the back of the field for the start of the race. But once again the guys at Venturini really nailed it, getting the car dialed in and where it needed to be. We had a pretty strong race, we were able to drive up from the 29th position inside the top-10 within the first 50-laps. From there we just started picking away at them. After the start we had it was cool to run up front with the leaders after struggling as much as we did early. I’m just happy we were able to get the car where it needed to be, hats off to the guys on the team for all the hard work and not giving up.”
