NOTES OF INTEREST: Fresh from the 2.5-mile Pocono triangle to the 1.33-mile concrete Nashville Superspeedway, the versatile ARCA RE/MAX Series is set to make their 2nd appearance of the year on the Nashville concrete oval. From Nashville, the world's most diverse tour heads to the Springfield, IL 1-mile fairgrounds dirt oval before steering for the half-mile Winchester Speedway bullring in Winchester IN. The Waste Management 200 will be the 6th ARCA RE/MAX Series event at Nashville Superspeedway since the series first debuted there in 2001. 3-time RE/MAX Series champion and current point leader Frank Kimmel has won 3 of the 5 races at Nashville. Ken Schrader, who won the inaugural event, and Kyle Busch are the only other winners there. Kimmel finished second in the races he didn't win. Drivers representing 18 states are currently entered including former Daytona, Talladega and MIS ARCA RE/MAX Series winner David Keith who makes his return to ARCA RE/MAX Series competition at Nashville in the Sadler Brothers Ford. Sons of former champions entered include Jason Jarrett whose father Dale Jarrett won the '99 Winston Cup championship, Todd Bowsher whose father Jack Bowsher won ARCA titles in '63, '64 & '65 and Billy Venturini whose father Bill Venturini earned ARCA championships in '87 & '91.
