Last weekend, on Aug. 28, Enfinger turned in another nail-biting race at Chicagoland Speedway in the ARCA RE/MAX series Ansell Cut Protection 150 event, eventually posting second after a thrilling last-lap shootout with experienced driver Justin Lofton. The event was broadcast live on the Speed Channel.

Enfinger drove underneath Lofton off the fourth corner in the last lap, but fell short by less than a length at the checkered flag. In the BeasleyAllen.com-Roush Yates Performance Parts Ford, had to settle for his second runner-up finish of the season. “I have never been more disappointed,” said Enfinger. “It was a great run. We were determined to be the fastest car here this weekend.”

Lofton led the most laps with 55, and had a half-straightaway lead over the field under 10 laps to go when Bryan Silas spun off turn two to bring out the seventh and final caution of the race. That bunched up the pack for the final restart during which the field received the green and white flags together. Lofton got the jump on the restart and stretched his advantage to five lengths while Enfinger and Rookie Hal Martin battled side-by-side for second. Then both Enfinger and martin erased Lofton’s advantage down the backstretch, setting up Enfinger’s last-ditch effort to pass the eventual race winner off turn four.
