August 27, 2017 - Austin Theriault Wins at Road America

1ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (Aug. 27, 2017) -- What looked like a full course Austin Cindric runaway turned into a last-lap Austin Theriault takeaway Sunday afternoon at Road America.

Theriault, in Ken Schrader's No. 52 Ford, steered through two last-lap incidents and came out the winner of the wild ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Road America 100.

"We were lucky and smart today," said Theriault. "We made the least amount of mistakes. I knew those guys were fast in front of me and behind me. It came down to not overdoing it, especially on that last lap. Everybody was trying to win the race on the last lap. Turn one was a problem."

Turn one was especially a problem for Cindric who had dominated the race up to that point…that point of contact between he and Cole Custer who locked horns entering turn one on the final circuit. Custer got a nose inside of Cindric but the two touched headed into the first right-hander, causing Cindric to spin while Custer went for an off-track excursion.

Then Dalton Sargeant blasted through as the leader and looked to be on his way to Victory Lane.

"It was wild," said Sargeant. "The 78 (Custer) and the 99 (Cindric) got together and that opened it up for me." >>READ MORE
