MONTGOMERY, ALA. (October 9, 2009) – BeasleyAllen.com driver Grant Enfinger showed he was made of tough stuff last weekend in Kansas City when he pulled in a third-place finish in the ARCA RE/MAX series Kansas Lottery 150 despite a starting position at 29th place. Enfinger has been running at the front of the pack in recent races, placing third at Talladega and taking consecutive to-the-wire second-place finishes at Kentucky and Chicagoland speedways. All that’s missing from his top-tier season is a No. 1 finish. To give him that chance, sponsor Beasley Allen gave the green light to Rockingham on Oct. 11.
Historic Rockingham North Carolina Speedway will host the last race of the 2009 ARCA series, the Carolina 200, on Sunday. The Rockingham race is a two-day program, with inspection, practice and qualifying taking place on Saturday. The 200-mile race will be on Sunday, Oct. 11 at noon CST with Speed TV’s delayed telecast to be aired at 9 p.m. CT Sunday night.
BeasleyAllen.com racing’s ARCA crew began the 2009 season at Rockingham, qualifying eighth before falling out of contention due to a pit stop error. This trip, they’ve got their sights set on first.
“We are determined to end our season with a top finish Sunday,” Enfinger said. “We are determined to put the BeasleyAllen.com car in Victory Lane.”
Race fans will have a chance to see one of the BeasleyAllen.com ARCA cars in Montgomery in November. Enfinger will bring a car to Beasley Allen’s Legal Strategies Conference and Expo, the largest continuing education event in the state for Alabama lawyers in private practice. That event is set for Nov. 20-21 at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center, in downtown Montgomery.
Two weeks after his visit to Montgomery, Enfinger will pilot the Beasley Allen Super Late Model at the Snowball Derby.
