The remainder of the wins belonged to Ty Gibbs, who drove to his first career ARCA win in front of his grandfather – Joe Gibbs – at Gateway Motorsports Park. He added another win in Salem, Indiana in September.
All of that winning ensured a third consecutive ARCA Menards Series manufacturer’s title for Toyota, its fourth overall.
NASCAR K&N Pro Series West
It was a banner year for 18-year-old Derek Kraus and Bill McAnally Racing (BMR) in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. Kraus took the points lead with his first wins of the season – a pair of victories at Tucson Speedway, which was the third stop of the year, and never looked back. Kraus scored top-10 finishes in 13 of the 14 events and tallied a series leading five total wins. With an average finish of fourth, Kraus just had to start the season finale in Phoenix to score the championship.
