Southern Illinois 100 presented by Federated Car Care

This Week’s Triple-K Construction / Baldwin Container Chevrolet… Grant Enfinger will pilot Chassis No. 200 this weekend in the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) presented by Menards Southern Illinois 100.

In those four appearances, Chassis No. 200 averaged a starting position of 2.3 and a finishing position of 12.3. This Chevrolet has also collected two Menards pole awards this season.

Enfinger at the ‘Magic Mile’… In two ARCA Racing Series starts at the ‘Magic Mile’ dirt track, Enfinger has an average starting position of 9.0 and an average finishing position of 5.5. The 30-year-old is credited with one victory, one top five and two top-10 finishes.

Winner, Winner… The Fairhope, Ala., native visited Victory Lane in 2014 at DuQuoin State Fairgrounds in the ARCA Racing Series after starting fourth and leading 63 laps.

Where He Stands… Enfinger continues to lead the driver championship point standings heading into the Southern Illinois 100 presented by Federated Car Care with a 150-point lead over second place.

Rearview Mirror: Illinois State Fairgrounds… Enfinger drove the No. 23 Triple-K Construction/ Baldwin Container Company Chevrolet SS to a 20th-place finish at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. Due to inclement weather, the one-hour practice session and Menards pole qualifying was cancelled. The field was set by owner’s points allowing Enfinger to start first for the 100-lap event. Enfinger led the first eight laps on the dirt mile oval, until an electrical issue occurred under green-flag conditions. The incident relegated Enfinger to a 20th-place finish, four laps down to the leader.

Meet Grant Enfinger… Enfinger is scheduled to participate in an autograph session with fellow ARCA Racing Series competitors on-track at 12:30 p.m. CDT on Monday, September 7.

Grant Enfinger Quote:

“I am really excited to return to DuQuoin with GMS Racing. We didn’t have the finish we hoped to have at Springfield (Illinois State Fairgrounds) due to an electrical issue early in the race. We are bringing the same mindset, but a slightly different set up than what we had in Springfield. I am confident that GMS Racing has prepared a fast Triple-K Construction / Baldwin Container Company Chevrolet SS to bring home a strong finish.”
