Late in the race, Enfinger saw the race leader, Kyle Weatherman, having success using the high line on the 7/8-mile track.

Enfinger moved to the high side and tracked Weatherman down in the race's closing laps.

It looked as though the race would end before Enfinger would be able to pass Weatherman for the win. 

But Weatherman, who was already rim-riding the Iowa track, slipped up into the wall allowing Enfinger to take over the race lead.

Enfinger led the final seven laps to take the win over Weatherman, who started from the outside pole.

In qualifying, Mason Mingus won the pole for the 150-lap race with a time of 24.179 seconds (130.278 mph). 

The race had 10 leaders among five different drivers. Leaders during the event included; Mason Mingus 1-26 (26 laps), Chad Boat 27-39, 60-89, 112, 115-123 (53 laps), Corey LaJoie 40-59 (20 laps), Grant Enfinger 90-111, 113-114, 144-150 (31 laps) and Kyle Weatherman 124-143 (20 laps).

After the race Enfinger commented, “We were on the bottom and Weatherman went by me like I was standing still. I couldn’t believe how high he was running.” 

Enfinger added, “We went up there and had a lot of grip and we were running as fast as him. I was reeling him in and he got up there a bit and we got by him."

Enfinger was followed to the finish line by Kyle Weatherman, who was making only his fourth series start.

Chad Boat finished in third place followed by Corey LaJoie and Kyle Benjamin in fourth and fifth, respectively.

The race was slowed just three times for cautions for a total of 22 laps.

Despite a tough day, Frank Kimmel managed to finish tenth, the first car one lap down.

Kimmel remains atop the driver standings over Mason Mingus heading into the ARCA Series' final three events.

The ARCA Racing Series travels next to Salem Speedway this Saturday, September 14, for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic.
