Michael Self, who won the ARCA Racing Series season-opener at Daytona, is looking to do it again this Saturday in the Music City 200 at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.

Self has become accustom to winning, having won four of the last five races between ARCA and the NASCAR K&N West tour. The ARCA victory in last year's Kansas finale made three consecutive wins. Although the streak was snapped when he finished 4th in a K&N race last November, Self got right back on the victory lane train at Daytona. If he can figure out a way to get inside the winner's circle at Nashville, it would make it three in a row on the ARCA side.

Like he was shot out of a cannon, Salt Lake City, Utah's Michael Self, on the last lap, jumped out to a 10-length advantage in overtime to win the wild ARCA Racing Series Lucas Oil 200 Saturday night at Daytona Int'l Speedway.

Self, in the No. 15 Venturini Motorsports-prepared Sinclair Lubricants Toyota, also survived two late-race multi-car crashes to get in position for the biggest win of his career. Two multi-car wrecks inside of 10 laps remaining sent the race into overtime during which several cars crashed on the backstretch coming to the checkered flag, including leaders Sean Corr, Chase Purdy and Travis Braden. That put Self in the lead for the final restart, the second attempt at a one-lap finish. Willie Mullins, in his own No. 3 Crow Wing Recycling-CW Metals-Bugsy's Auto Ford, dodged all the wrecks and came home second, a career-best for the Fredericksburg, Virginia driver.
