We are pleased to report that Grant Enfinger continues his “winning ways.” When Grant’s car stopped on pit road early in last month’s Federated Car Care ARCA Fall Classic at Salem Speedway, it appeared any hopes of him capturing a victory were also stopped. But Grant, with extremely quick-thinking – with a crew member searching under his hood for the problem – checked the kill switch, flipped it on and his car fired. “I guess I hit the kill switch, which is crazy,” Enfinger said in victory lane. “We’ve had a lot of really silly stuff happen this year. I felt like we were going to sit there and go 20 laps down. Finally, I bumped the kill switch again and it fired right up.”
Grant’s crew pulled everyone off the car and he left pit road just before the pace car made it around, thus keeping him from going a lap down. He used a late pit stop to take his four fresh tires and sailed to victory lane. Ken Schrader finished second, Sellersburg’s Will Kimmel was third and Tyler Dippel from New York was fourth. Chase Briscoe from Mitchell, Ind. was fifth.
Grant’s win was his sixth of the 2015 season and he will win the ARCA driver point standings, which is great news. Grant, who has led the series point standings all season, had this to say about his win after Salam Speedway:
It’s crazy how it happened. We had a car from about 20 laps in that seemed like it could win the race. It seemed the longer it went on tires the better the car was than everyone else. We took four tires. At that point of the race, for the cars on the lead lap, I think we were the only one on fresh tires. It was a crazy race, but that’s nothing different than we always see at Salem. I feel like we had the car to beat on the long runs.
Winning the ARCA driver point standings is huge for Grant. All of us at Beasley Allen are real proud of Grant and his crew. I believe Grant is one of the best drivers currently on the circuit and I predict he will go on to a bigger stage in the near future.
