An early morning fire destroyed ARCA’s home office in Temperance, Mich., on Sunday, the series confirmed in a brief statement.

The series’ final race of season of its stock car series is set for Friday at Kansas Speedway. Officials said preparations for the season finale are “full speed ahead.”

ARCA was founded in 1953 by John Marcum. The current president of ARCA is Ron Drager, who took over the position 1996 following the death of Bob Loga.

"We know we've lost some documents, computers and some historical artifacts we can't replace; however, we know we're racing today at Winchester Speedway, racing today at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway, and we're full ahead for Friday's Kansas 150 at Kansas Speedway," Drager said.

The ARCA series races stock cars similar to those seen in past years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and indeed most cars used in ARCA were previously used in NASCAR.

ARCA also sanctions a truck-racing series and owns both the Toledo Speedway and Flat Rock Speedway. ARCA formerly sanctioned the ARCA Midget Series from 1988 until 2002.
