It almost looked like the late 3-time ARCA national champion Jack Bowsher leading the pack Saturday night under the lights at Salem Speedway. But of course it wasn't…it was Austin Theriault who's become very good at leading the charge among the ARCA Racing Series ranks.

Fort Kent, Maine's Austin Theriault put an exclamation point on a picture-perfect day for Ken Schrader Racing Monday afternoon at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds mile dirt.

Theriault out-hustled leader Shane Lee into turn one during the second green-white-checker attempt and pulled away while Lee got the chrome horn from Sheldon Creed.

ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards championship leader Austin Theriault had to "wipe the slate clean" on Lucas Oil Raceway. The Fort Kent, Maine driver raced there in a Late Model in 2013, but not much seemed to carry over.

Theriault, along with several others, tested Sunday afternoon/evening at Lucas Oil in preparation for Friday's (July 21) Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200. "Well it's kind of like we had to wipe the slate clean," said Theriault. "The Late Models just drive different than the ARCA cars. You really have to approach it differently. In the heavier ARCA cars, everything is multiplied from the standpoint of changing track conditions and everything else."
