Brennan Poole Wins at Elko Speedway for Second ARCA Win

[media-credit name=”ARCA Racing Network” align=”alignright” width=”180″][/media-credit]Concord, NC (June 4, 2012) — Venturini Motorsports driver Brennan Poole earned his second career victory in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards in Saturday’s Akona 200 presented by Federated Car Care at Minnesota’s Elko Speedway.

Poole who qualified his No. 25 Venturini Chevrolet fifth moved his way to the front of the field early and never looked back.

“The car was really good,” said Poole, whose last win came in his series debut last spring at Salem Speedway in Indiana. “I can’t thank Venturini Motorsports enough. It’s pretty awesome to win the inaugural race at Elko. I had a lot of fun here tonight. The track’s a blast. Of course, it’s always fun when you’ve got such a good race car. I was slipping and sliding and trying to get everything out of it coming into the corner, dodging traffic. It was crazy.”

“We’ve never been to a place like this. I’m proud of my guys and all the work they did.”

The race was the first for ARCA at Elko Speedway, just south of Minneapolis and St. Paul. ARCA’s top division had never before appeared in Minnesota.

Poole who was dialed in all day showed his dominance early in the race pulling away from the field and extending his lead up to three seconds over the second place car and almost 3/4 of a track over the third place car.

Poole, who recaptured top spot in the ARCA Racing Series point standings with his victory, led 148 of 200 laps in Saturday’s event.

“The car was really good out front and it worked really well in traffic,” said the 21-year-old from The Woodlands, Texas. “We were just a little bit tight, so we had to save the right front once we got into the lead. I kind of used up what I had to get into the lead so once I got there, I just tried to let it ride and protect that right front. That first run, I was good up front, but I used up my right front tire and started to get tight late in the run.

“I thought our pit strategy was great. (Crew chief) Billy (Venturini) made a great call on that. We came down and got four tires a little later than some of the other guys and our car was good enough to march to the front of the field.”

The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards will visit Pocono Raceway for the first of two events this season next Saturday, June 9. SPEED will air the race at 2:30 p.m. on a same-day delay, one of 10 broadcasts for the series on the network this season. ARCARacing.com will feature live timing and scoring of all on-track events Friday and Saturday.
