Top Five Finish for Dexter Bean and Team GLOCK Racing in Ohio

In the seventh race of the season in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, #37 driver Dexter Bean and Team GLOCK finished third in the Hantz Group 200 by Federated Car Care on the .5 mile Toledo short track.

Dexter piloted the car that Team GLOCK took to both Rockingham and Salem. He qualified 21st and had the lead by the red flag at lap 109. After almost 2 hours of a rain delay, the green flag waived. Dexter and Matt Carter fought for the lead during six restarts while Patrick Sheltra made his way to the top three toward the end of the race. Dexter and Team GLOCK finished the race in the third position behind Matt Carter and Patrick Sheltra.

Dexter led 37 laps out of the 204 lap race. He won the Casite Hard Charger Award for climbing 18 positions from his 21st starting position as well as the Klotz Halfway Leader Award for being in the lead at lap 100. "It was an awesome day for Team GLOCK. We had a top car, led the race and finished strong. The pit crew made a great key stop and it showed how well rounded our team can be. I have to thank Jeff for keeping me out of trouble throughout the race. All the guys at Spraker Racing and Team GLOCK were great," said Dexter.

Owner Jeff Spraker was pleased with the third place run and commented, "We have had top five equipment all year, but this is the first time this season that our finish has been indicative of that fact. We've had some bad luck up to this point, but that's all behind us now. We're looking forward to Pocono in two weeks and hope that we can capitalize on the success that we have had at that track in the past."

Stephanie Plumecocq, Director of Marketing at GLOCK, Inc. adds, "These are the finishes we know Dexter and Team Glock are capable of and we look forward to many more of them." th The next stop on the schedule for Team GLOCK Racing in the ARCA RE/MAX Series is the Pocono ARCA 200 on Saturday, June 7. Live timing and scoring will be available on arcaracing.com for the 1pm race in Long Pond, PA and will be televised on the SPEED Channel on June 7th at 10pm EST.
