Carelli Takes Memphis Arca Pole

MILLINGTON TENN, 6-21-01 - The last time Rick Carelli raced at Memphis Motorsports Park, the Arvada, Colorado driver was whisked away to a Memphis hospital where he would stay for ten days in the intensive care unit fighting for his life. More than two years later, the driver of the RE/MAX Int'l Chevy has conquered the tough 3/4-mile bullring. The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series veteran stopped the clock at 22.974 seconds (117.524 mph) to win the Old Milwaukee Pole Award for Friday's Memphis ARCA 150 bumping Frank Kimmel off the pole in the final minutes of qualifying.

Kimmel, in the Advance Auto Parts-Pork Chevy, will join Carelli in row one for Friday's race with a speed of 117.238. Tim Steele, who has recently closed within 55 point of Kimmel in the championship points battle, qualified third at 116.379 ahead of 2000 NASCAR All Pro champion and Craftsman Truck Series regular Billy Bigley at 116.374 and Laurel, Mississippi driver Robert Burroughs at 116.249 to complete the top-five. <pre> 2001 ARCA RE/MAX SERIES EVENT #11 Memphis Motorsports Park, Millington TN, 6-22-01 Official Starting Grid, Memphis RE/MAX 150
