It was a one lap shoot out for the ages, and when the dust settled in overtime, ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards veteran Tom Hessert emerged the winner of the 63rd General Tire GRABBER-Southern Illinois 100 Sunday night under the lights at the DuQuoin (IL) State Fairgrounds mile dirt track.

Hessert overcame an overheating issue early on in the No. 25 Detour Sunglasses Toyota to earn his sixth career ARCA Racing Series victory.

Coming up on the white flag, the caution came out when Matt Kurzejewski spun right in front of the leaders. That set the stage for the one lap sprint to the finish.
