(TOLEDO, Ohio - September 18, 2012) - The top finishers from Salem Speedway are represented well on the latest episode of "Inside ARCA," and the show even packs a punch for listeners searching for a laugh.
On the show this week are five of the top seven finishers from Saturday's race, including race winner Tom Hessert and race runner-up and points leader Chris Buescher. Also appearing are Alex Bowman, Mason Mingus, and Frank Kimmel II. Tim Clagg, one of the voices on the ARCA Racing Network's live audio coverage of non-televised races, caught up with each driver for interviews after the race.
The show finishes with a flurry of quick conversations, as done by guest interviewer and current top-10 competitor Matt Lofton in the debut of "Lofton's Pit Adventures."
Lofton "stole" the microphone from Clagg on pit road before Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell and asked a variety of off-the-wall questions to drivers, crew members, and a series official alike, from finding out how cars acted in practice to determining one driver's favorite Kimmel. Among Lofton's many interview subjects were Chase Elliott, Frank Kimmel, Chad Hackenbracht, and Bobby Thomsen of ARCA.
Host Charlie Krall hosts "Inside ARCA" every Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET, unless scheduled otherwise. The show previews upcoming action, reviews recent races, and covers the latest in the ARCA Racing Series and related properties with drivers, crew chiefs, officials, and more - the movers and shakers that have kept the stock car series running through the end of its sixth decade.
