It would have been difficult to hold off Kyle Benjamin over the course of 200 laps Sunday afternoon at Winchester Speedway, and in the end it proved impossible.

With Smith gone from the mix, Benjamin, in the No. 28 MDM Motorsports Toyota, cruised under the checkered flag as winner of the Winchester ARCA Racing Series 200. Christian Eckes, in the Venturini Motorsports-New York Bus Sales Toyota, stepped up in the end and got within five lengths of the leader, but fell back about a half-second at the final stripe. The Middletown, N.Y. rookie tied his career-best finish in second. Austin Theriault padded his championship lead, coming home third in the No. 52 Ken Schrader Racing Ford.
