TOLEDO, Ohio — Corey Heim and Ty Gibbs enter Saturday night’s Herr’s Potato Chips 200 at Toledo Speedway as the only drivers who have won ARCA Menards Series races this season with two apiece.
While both are expected to contend for another win, the former proved in Saturday’s practice session he may be considered the driver to beat in the fifth race of the season.
Heim, driving the No. 20 Craftsman Toyota for Venturini Motorsports, paced the field with a best lap of 16.109 seconds / 111.739 mph during the 45-minute session. Gibbs finished with a best lap time of 16.200 seconds / 111.111 mph.
Nick Sanchez (16.296 seconds / 110.457 mph), Thad Moffitt (16.345 seconds / 110.125 mph) and Cole Williams (16.725 seconds / 107.623) rounded out the top five in practice.
Williams was a late entry for Saturday night’s race at Toledo, as Rette Jones Racing announced its original entry, Adam Lemke, would not be able to race due to travel complications.
Jesse Love, Gracie Trotter, Tony Cosentino, Brad Smith and Dick Doheny rounded out the top 10.
Qualifying for Saturday night’s race at Toledo is scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. ET. Each car will record two laps during the session.
The Herr’s Potato Chips 200, also the first race of the 2021 Sioux Chief Showdown, is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET. The event will broadcast live on MAVTV Motorsports Network with a live stream available on NBC Sports’ TrackPass.
