ARCA Announces Unprecedented New "On The Move" Feature to Live Timing & Scoring

All Kentucky Speedway Events, RE/MAX Series & Trucks, Included

SPARTA KY (5-9-08) - In the first five ARCA RE/MAX Series races this year, there have been five different winners - Michael Annett at Daytona, Justin Allgaier at Salem, Matt Hawkins at Iowa, Scott Speed at Kansas and Joey Logano most recently at Rockingham. And, quite fortunately, all could be seen via SPEED or MavTV.

However, with no TV on the table for this Saturday's Drive Smart! Buckle Up Kentucky 150 at Kentucky Speedway, your one and only live source of information becomes arcaracing.com where Live Timing and Scoring, from practice, SIM Factory Pole Qualifying and the race will be available for all.

And, unlike any others which utilize live web timing and scoring, arcaracing.com features elements yet unseen - most notably, a brand new "On The Move" section that allows the viewer to see which cars are actually going faster than the leader during the race, and how much faster.

"ARCA is always working on improving both the on-track and off-track experience for the stock car racing fan," said Steven Volpp, CEO of ACME Branding Company.

""On The Move" will provide a separate pop up window that will provide the race fan unequalled insight into who is "On The Move" during an ARCA RE/MAX Series and/or ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series race. Any car/truck that completes a lap faster than the leader of the race will appear in a separate window from the main timing and scoring screen. This will allow the race fan to not only know who is leading the race, and the position of all the other cars on track, but who the fastest cars/trucks on track are and who is "On The Move" and ready to create the next classic ARCA on track memory. Another first, and it's only available at arcaracing.com."

The new "On The Move" lap differential feature is now color coded (green for cars faster than the leader/red for those slower than the leader).

"After clicking on the new "On The Move" feature from beneath the weather box, a new window will come to life that shows just the cars that are "On The Move"! These "On The Move" cars are the cars that are behind the leader, but just ran a lap faster than the leader. It will also show the most recent lap differential and the total race differential. No other sanctioning body has this feature."

Also this week, ARCA will debut the first ever live Timing & Scoring for the ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series. That means that every lap turned, by both the ARCA RE/MAX Series and ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series this Saturday at Kentucky Speedway will be featured via Live Timing & Scoring at arcaracing.com.

The May 10th Drive Smart! Buckle Up Kentucky 150 at Kentucky Speedway also includes a same-day 100-lap feature event from the ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series on the adjoining quarter mile track. Practice for the ARCA RE/MAX Series is from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm followed by SIM Factory Pole Qualifying at 3:30. The Drive Smart! Buckle Up Kentucky 150 is slated to get underway at 8:00 pm ET.
