From the outside pole, the 28-year-old driver from Fairhope, Alabama dominated the ARCA Series' second event of the season at Mobile International Speedway. 

Twenty-six drivers took the green flag with Mason Mingus on the pole. The 18-year-old driver captured his first pole award after circling the half-mile track in 17.634 seconds (102.076 mph).

A pair of even younger drivers (unable to legally drive alone on public roads) qualified third and fourth for the race. 

Fifteen-year-olds Anderson Bowen and Kyle Benjamin earned second row starting positions for the race as the series continues to develop another crop of young and talented drivers.

The race featured ten leaders among four different drivers. The list of leaders included; Grant Enfinger 1-60, 80-153, 155-157, 173-200 (165 laps), Kyle Benjamin 61-74, 154, 158-161, 166-172 (26 laps), Frank Kimmel 75-79 (4 laps), and Josh Williams 162-165 (4 laps).

In the end, Grant Enfinger captured the win finishing 2.419 seconds ahead of the two 15-year-old starters, Kyle Benjamin (2nd) and Anderson Bowen (3rd).

Mason Mingus finished in fourth place from the pole position followed by Frank Kimmel in fifth place.

Kimmel and Mingus are now tied in the driver standings with 420 points each. 

Of note, prior to the event, back-to-back National Champion Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was the Grand Marshall for the race and gave the command to start engines before an adoring crowd.  

Since 1995, the ARCA Racing Series has raced exclusively on Hoosier racing tires. 

Tire sales and service for the event was provided by Hoosier's traveling service crew comprised of David Wroblewski, Kevin Wroblewski, Chad Wright and Mike Haenes. 

The ARCA Racing Series will resume action April 28, at Salem Speedway for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA 200.
