September 4, 2017 - Austin Theriault Wins Wild One at Du Quoin
1DuQUOIN, Ill. (Sept. 4, 2017) -- Fort Kent, Maine's Austin Theriault put an exclamation point on a picture-perfect day for Ken Schrader Racing Monday afternoon at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds mile dirt.

Right after bossman Ken Schrader wheeled his own No. 9 Federated Auto Parts Modified to Victory Lane -- holding off Tony Stewart for the win -- Theriault steered Schrader's No. 52 Federated Auto Parts Toyota to the winner's circle in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards General Tire GRABBER 100, the 64th edition of the Southern Illinois 100.

Theriault, from outside row one, out-hustled leader Shane Lee into turn one during the second green-white-checker attempt and pulled away while Lee got the chrome horn from Sheldon Creed. While Creed and Lee banged around back and forth, Theriault drove away from everyone, winning by just over a second at the final stripe.

"We got a good restart," said Theriault. "I had to get him on that restart…other than that we would have ended up in the fence."

Both Lee and Creed could have ended up in the "fence" when Lee got a shot from behind from Creed before Lee paid it back with a shot of his own.

"It was just hard racing there, all going for the win," said Creed. "My plan was to push the 22 (Lee) and get him in front of the 52. It didn't pan out like we wanted. Me and Lee were going for our first win…it was just hard racing." >>READ MORE
