Bobby Gerhart has long been considered ARCA’s king of restrictor plate racing; with eight wins at Daytona and one at Talladega, it’s not hard to figure out why.

That said, it’s somewhat ironic that Bobby Gerhart’s 300th career ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start comes this Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway in the 52nd running of the Int’l Motorsports Hall of Fame 200. As an ARCA regular since 1988, he could have hardly planned it this way.
