9/15 Chicagoland - ARCA

Charlotte, N.C. (September 15, 2016) - The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards kicked-off the highly anticipated NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase weekend Thursday night with the 15th annual SCOTT 150 at Chicagoland Speedway. Dalton Sargeant bounced back from a disappointing finish in his last series outing to finish fifth earning his ninth top-5 of the season, Sargeant increased his season stats to nine top-5’s to go along with one victory and (11) top-10 finishes in just thirteen series starts. With Sargeant’s strong finish at Chicago, the Boca Raton, Florida native further increased his bid for ARCA’s Rookie of the Year honors with only two series races remaining on the schedule. 

“We had to work hard for this one. Billy Venturini and the entire 55 Toyota Racing Development-Windows 10 Toyota team worked hard all day long. The bumps in three and four really disrupted the car and affected our drive off. We made a lot of adjustments throughout the race which helped and the guys in the pits were flawless tonight.  I'd say we just needed more time on the track as a team to get closer to competing for a win, solid day, we'll take the things we learned from Chicagoland and apply them at Kentucky.”
