NOTES OF INTEREST: The ARCA Bondo/Mar-Hyde Series will again help ignite another big night under the lights at Lowe’s Motor Speedway with the EasyCare Vehicle Service Contracts 100 scheduled to roll off Wednesday night, October 4 at 9 PM ET following Bud Pole Qualifying for the NASCAR Winston Cup Series. This year’s entry list holds an impressive combination of veterans and rookies from all walks of motorsports who will compete for nearly $200,000 in posted awards. Included on that list are ARCA regulars Frank Kimmel (point leader), Tim Steele (3-time champ/3rd in points), Bob Strait (2nd in points), Shawna Robinson, ’99 Daytona ARCA winner Bobby Gerhart, Kirk Shelmerdine, Bob Schacht, Mark Gibson, Andy Belmont and Joe Cooksey. Rookies entered include a career-first start from Larry Foyt, son of AJ Foyt, third generation drivers’ Jason Jarrett and Justin Labonte, as well as Ryan Newman in a Penske-prepared Ford, Jason Leffler in a Joe Gibbs Pontiac, and a career-first start from Ricky Hendrick in a Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. Former Charlotte/ARCA winners entered include Kimmel, Steele, Shelmerdine, Lyndon Amick and Mario Gosselin. The EasyCare Vehicle Service Contracts 100 will be the 13th ARCA race at LMS since the series first raced there in 1964 when Curtis Turner won the inaugural event. However, there would be a 32-year hiatus before the series would return in 1996. Steele is the only 4-time ARCA winner at LMS as well as the all-time lap leader there having led 359 laps in 6 races. Rookie Brian Ross (4th in points) leads rookie Shawna Robinson by just 16 markers heading to Charlotte in the chase for the Prestone ARCA Rookie of the Year honors.
