SPEED CLOSES IN ON STENHOUSE

Scott Speed has the luxury of two asphalt races before he really gets down and dirty, beginning with Saturday's ARCA RE/MAX Series race at the 2.5 mile Pocono triangle. The Red Bull driver scored his third ARCA RE/MAX Series victory of the season last Saturday night at holding off pole sitter, Justin Allgaier and passing eight-time ARCA champion Frank Kimmel to earn his second consecutive victory. He shaved 10 points off Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s championship lead and trails by 55 entering the Pennsylvania 200 this weekend.

Speed, however will soon miss the comfortable feeling of pavement and grip. After Pocono and the Aug. 9th race in Nashville, the ARCA Series will head to two dirt-track races on fairgrounds tracks in Illinois. Speed's next Craftsman Truck start with Bill Davis Racing doesn't come until Aug. 20 at Bristol.

QUOTES

"I am having the time of my life right now. We are running great in the ARCA car. I actually can't be- interesting this weekend. We are gaining ground each week on Ricky (Stenhouse, Jr.) and hopefully this weekend will not be any different."
