September 9, 2017 - Theriault Takes Jack Bowsher Car to Victory Lane at Salem
1 SALEM, Ind. (Sept. 9, 2017) -- If you squinted just right, it almost looked like 3-time ARCA national champion Jack Bowsher leading the pack Saturday night under the lights at Salem Speedway. But of course it wasn't…it was Fort Kent, Maine's Austin Theriault who's become very good at leading the charge among the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards ranks.

Theriault, driving a special blue and white Bowsher Throwback scheme, hunted down Zane Smith in the closing laps, passed him with four laps to go, then drove away to win the 102nd running of the Eddie Gilstrap Motors Fall Classic. It was Theriault's sixth win of the season and third consecutive in the No. 52 Ken Schrader Racing Ford.

Theriault looked a lot like Bowsher in the lap-leader column too, leading 140 of 200 laps en route to Salem's coveted winner's circle. Some race fans of course remember when Bowsher won seven straight ARCA races at Salem from 1963 through 1965. >>READ MORE
