NOTES OF INTEREST: First & foremost, the 2002 season marks the 50th anniversary of the ARCA RE/MAX Series. Born in Toledo OH in 1953, the well-known stock car tour will be competing at their hometown speedway when the Jasper Engines & Transmissions 200 rolls off this Sunday marking the 53rd appearance of the RE/MAX Series at the Toledo track since 1963. More than 40 first-class teams have already filed entries all competing for a maximum of 35 starting positions. Leading the parade of entrants include current point leader Damon Lusk (Pocono & Atlanta winner) who will make his first appearance at Toledo and the most recent winner on the tour (June 15 at MIS) 22-year-old rookie Chad Blount who is only 30 points away from Lusk in second. Defending champion and race winner Frank Kimmel (3rd in points), also entered, is tied with Bobby Bowsher (5 wins) with the most Toledo victories. In fact, of all the entrants, only Kimmel has won at Toledo. Late model standout Fred Campbell will make his career-1st RE/MAX Series start at Toledo. Campbell is best known for late model tracks championships at Berlin Raceway (9), Kalamazoo (3) as well as 2 Iceman Series titles. 3rd generation drivers Billy Venturini and Jason Jarrett have also filed entries. Jarrett, the 2001 ARCA Rookie of the Year, finished 3rd at Toledo in his first appearance in '01. ML Motorsports, who fields Jarrett's cars, has also entered a back-up Pontiac with the ageless Red Farmer of Hueytown AL as driver. Farmer also serves as team consultant to Jarrett. The event also marks the return of RE/MAX Series veteran Jeff Finley. Toledo Speedway has recently undergone extensive renovation projects including new pavement, new pitroad, new reserved chair-back seating, new garage area behind the backstretch with concrete pads and paving, new pit concessions, restrooms and a new, enclosed tech area for tech-line procedures as well as many other improvements/additions.
