A late race pass that occurred when Tom Hessert got loose and slid up the track, allowed Ken Schrader to win the Southern Illinois 100 at the DuQuion State Fairgrounds. It's Schrader's second ARCA Racing Series win of the season and the 16th of his ARCA Racing Series career. Schrader also broke his own record becoming the oldest driver to ever win a race at the age of 58.
Schrader passed Hessert after a late caution flew. He was able to hold off Hessert on the Green-White-Checkered finish and pulled his Chevrolet into victory lane at the one mile dirt track for the third time.
Finishing third was Justin Boston while Brennan Poole finished fourth and Chris Windom finished in the fifth position. Mason Mitchell finished in the sixth position and Frank Kimmel finished seventh. It's Kimmel's 26th consecutive top ten finish. Kelly Kovski finished eighth, A.J. Fike finished ninth and Taylor Ferns rounded out the top ten in her Venturini Motorsports Toyota.
Other notables in the field included Mason Mingus in 12th, Tyler Reddick in 15th, Will Kimmel in 24th and veteran James Hylton in 26th.
Kimmel still has a commanding lead over Mason Mingus in the point standings.
The ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards will run their next race on September 7th at Iowa Speedway for the Prairie Meadows 150. That race will be broadcasted live on Fox Sports 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
