The On Pit Row Pit Crew will be there. Wouldn’t miss it. Don’t be surprised if Ken Shrader and Frank kimmel are bangin’ fenders at some point tonight. Both are big ARCA crowd favorites and, as in the spring race at Toledo, they are usually up front somewhere.
Mike Brudenell, motorsports writer for the Detroit Free Press has a preview of the ARCA RE/Max 200 in his regular Spin Doctor column. Check it out. Mike will co-host On Pit Row next Tuesday with Steve Wronkowicz while I take a week off. And if Steve thought I make him look like an idiot….
Watch young Joey Coulter tonight. He’s in the no. 16 and he’s due.

The ARCA/ReMax Series will head to Long Pond, PA this weekend to team up with the Sprint Cup Series, and with the Trucks in Texas and Nationwide Series in Nashville, this could be the spot in which someone impresses the right person and moves up through the ranks. This race has been dominated by either Cup rookies moving down to get track experience, or a hotshoe from a Cup team gaining experience for a future foray into the series.
Since 2003, Cup drivers or Cup development drivers have won 8 of the 10 races at Pocono. These drivers include Casey Mears twice, Scott Riggs, Ryan Hemphill, Travis Kvapil, Chase Miller, Chad McCumbee, and Michael McDowell. Only the series’ great one, Frank Kimmel, broke the streak, taking the July races in 2005 and 2006. Also competing in these races have been drivers such as Kyle Busch, David Reutimann, and David Ragan. Previous polesitters have included Mears, Riggs, and Kvapil, as well as David Stremme.
As for the 2008 edition, there is no shortage of candidates to win. This season has been an exciting one in the series, as young drivers have come in and performed exceedingly well. Current points leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr., second-place Matt Carter, and sixth-place Scott Speed have all won this year. Speed also won the Truck race at Dover, and will compete in Friday night’s Truck race. Still, there are others who will pose a threat. You can’t discount Kimmel, who still maintains a top points position despite working on a shoestring budget with his own team. He could use a win, and it could come as soon as this very weekend.

Steve scored again as ON PIT ROW kicks off our 2008 ARCA RE/MAX coverage with special guest Frank Kimmel, 9 time champion of ARCA’s top series and this year, driver and team manager of the Tri-State Motorsports car. Stop by and listen to the broadcast live at 5pm ET today at OnPitRow.com.
If you are an ARCA fan – and why wouldn’t you be? – sign up for ARCA Nation. ARCA Nation is the new online community site for the ARCA organization. Check it out and friend me up. I need all the pals that I can get.
Update: In my excitement and rush to post about Frank Kimmel’s visit with us ON PIT ROW, I checked a bio on Frank at ARCA’s website for the name of his new team. I even printed the page. It was pretty good except they still had the old team listed. Frank and his brother are fielding cars as Kimmel Racing. Tri-State is his old team, and I should have known that. Sounding stupid on the show is normally Steve’s job. Sorry Steve-O, to steal your thunder.
