The 26-year-old driver "worked" his way through the field before taking the lead from 15th starting Spencer Gallagher on the race's final circuit. 

Gallagher finished in second place followed by Will Kimmel in third. 

Making his ARCA Series debut was 15-year-old Kyle Weatherman. Weatherman, a high-school freshman, came home in fourth with Travis Swaim rounding out the list of top five finishers. 

The race marked the first time three 15-year-old drivers started an ARCA Series event. Joining Weatherman (4th) was Kyle Benjamin (11th) and Anderson Bowen (20th).

With a sixth place finish Frank Kimmel (630) takes over sole possession of first place in the driver standings. Mason Mingus (600) drops to second place after finishing 10th in Sunday's race. 

The series will go from one of the shortest tracks (.555 miles) on its schedule to the longest (2.66 miles) when it travels next to Talladega Superspeedway on May 3rd.
