October 23, 2017 - Theriault Clinches ARCA Championship
1 KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Oct. 20, 2017) -- Michael Self was the meat in the middle of a five-wide sandwich on the final restart at Kansas Speedway and barely squeezed through as the leader off turn two. From there the Salt Lake City, Utah driver held off a spirited charge from Ty Majeski to win the Kansas 150 Friday night, his career-first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards victory.

Austin Theriault clinched the ARCA Racing Series national championship in Ken Schrader's No. 52 Federated Auto Parts Ford, despite finishing 25th after he cut a right-front tire and made contact with the outside safer barrier off turn two.

"We overcame a lot of challenges this year," said Theriault. "We had a tremendous year…the support from back home, the crew…the all-nighters. I couldn't be more proud of the effort from everyone who shared in this championship."

While Theriault took home the biggest prize, Riley Herbst, who finished ninth, wrapped up the 2017 SCOTT Rookie of the Year title.

"We didn't win but we got the end result we came for…pretty good payday all the way around," said Herbst. "Thanks to all my Joe Gibbs Racing guys and all their hard work, and thanks to SCOTT for the Rookie of the Year. We're coming back next year to go after the championship." >>READ MORE
