MONTGOMERY, ALA. (September 30, 2009) – BeasleyAllen.com is gearing up for the win at Kansas Speedway tomorrow, Oct. 1. Driver Grant Enfinger and his trusty pit crew have been fine-tuning the car for the Ninth Annual Kansas Lottery 150, part of the ARCA RE/MAX series. The race will kick off a NASCAR weekend at Kansas Speedway, and will be broadcast on the Speed Channel beginning at 4 p.m. The race is 150 miles, 100 laps. This will be Enfinger’s final race of the season.
Enfinger is gunning for the checkered flag this time out, to put the icing on an impressive series of finishes in his last races. He took third at Talladega, which really made the racing circuit sit up and take notice, then turned in consecutive nail-biting second place finishes at Kentucky Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway, running neck-and-neck with more experienced drivers and just barely missing the win.
At this point, weather is Enfinger’s greatest concern for Kansas. Rain is forecast for the Kansas Speedway on Thursday, which could cancel qualifying. In that case, the field will be set by points. Although he has finished near the front on most of his ARCA starts, Enfinger doesn’t have as many season owner points as other drivers. However, he is not letting a possible start at the back of the pack dampen his plans for a win.
“If we have to start in the back, we’ll just pass more cars,” Enfinger says. “We are going to Kansas to win and whether we practice, qualify or the race is delayed, we are going to run the BeasleyAllen.com car as hard as we can.”
