Schrader, who became the series' oldest winner earlier this year at Toledo, broke his own record Monday afternoon winning the Southern Illinois 100 to bring a close to the Illinois State Fair. 

After posting the fastest time in practice, the veteran racer went on to win the pole for the event when he circled the 1-mile clay oval in 34.351 seconds (104.800 mph). 

Schrader narrowly beat out Illinois driver Kelly Kovski for the pole by a slim 6/1000th of a second. Kovski's time was 34.357 seconds (104.782 mph).  

The race had five leaders among four different drivers including; Kenny Schrader 1-41, 97-102 (47 laps), Chris Windom 42-60 (19 laps), Frank Kimmel 61-63 (3 laps) and Tom Hessert 64-96 (33 laps).

The race came down to a green-white-checker finish after a late-race caution. 

In the end, Schrader defended the top spot finishing .565 seconds ahead of Tom Hessert who started ninth. 

Hessert was followed to the line by Justin Boston, Brennan Poole and Chris Windom to round out the top five.

The race had eight cautions for a total of 34 laps. The 100-lap race was extended two additional laps due to the race's last caution flag.

It was Kenny Schrader's 17th career win in the ARCA Racing Series. Schrader last won at DuQuoin back in 2007.

Frank Kimmel finished in seventh place extending his already sizable lead (305 points) in the driver standings over Mason Mingus who finished 12th.

Hoosier is proud to be the official tire supplier to the ARCA Racing Series.

Trackside tire sales and service was provided by Hoosier's track service team which included; David Wroblewski, Tyler Hartle and Mike Haenes.

With just four events remaining in the 2013 season, the ARCA Racing Series is back in action this Saturday night, September 7, at Iowa Speedway.
