Tom Hessert posted the fourth-quickest speed in practice at Salem (IN) Speedway and started the Federated Auto Parts 200 in third place.
He took over the lead on lap 24 and held it for 39 laps before eventual winner, Ken Schrader, took over the point. The crew worked on the car throughout the day and Hessert struggled through the remainder of the race to get the handling back on the car. In spite of three additional pit stops, none of the changes that the crew made brought the car back to how it felt early in the race. In spite of the struggles, Hessert managed to pull out a seventh-place finish. Hessert will head to Talladega Superspeedway as the defending race winner.-ARCA Racing Apr 28 - 12:42 PM

As the most recent Salem Speedway winner in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, Tom Hessert understandably calls the .555-mile track in Salem, Indiana his favorite track.

With three previous victories at the historic track, (two with Cunningham Motorsports and one with Ken Schrader Racing), Hessert is looking forward to the team’s return this weekend. Hessert could get accustomed to being the reigning champ, as he has two exciting weekends in a row. After Salem, the ARCA Series teams head to Talladega Superspeedway, where Tom is also the most recent winner, after taking the checkered flag last May.-ARCA Racing
