KANSAS CITY (9-30-09) - With a tight championship points battle coming down to the wire, the ARCA RE/MAX Series will take center stage Thursday afternoon at Kansas Speedway when the Kansas Lottery 150 comes to life on the 1.5-mile speedway.

At present, 42 cars are entered, and 36 teams have already gone through technical inspection here Wednesday afternoon in preparation for tomorrow's race, live on SPEED at 5:00 PM ET.

In addition to determining ARCA's superspeedway champion at Kansas, the overall championship is extremely close. With just two events remaining in 2009 (Kansas Oct. 1 & Rockingham Oct. 11), Justin Lofton leads rookie Parker Kligerman by just 25 points. Kligerman, a Penske Development driver who drives the Cunningham Motorsports Dodge, leads in the win column with a season-high seven wins to Lofton's six.

"Winning races is our main goal," said Kligerman. "We come to win. If we accomplish that, the championship will take care of itself."

Kligerman will also attempt to qualify for this Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series Kansas Lottery 300.

To add more intensity, the Kansas Lottery 150 will be a one-day show for the ARCA RE/MAX Series with practice scheduled from 9:00 to 11:00 AM local time followed by Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell at 1:00 PM. The Kansas Lottery 150 is live on SPEED at 5:00 PM Eastern.

In addition to the live telecast on SPEED, the ARCA Racing Network will feature live streaming audio at ARCAracing.com of all the on-track activity to include practice, qualifying and the race.
