That is where Theriault made his ARCA debut, and he won the race while racing for Venturini Motorsports in 2014.

Austin Theriault back in the fast lane
The Fort Kent driver is rekindling his career in the ARCA series.

...Theriault has won three times this season in nine races on the ARCA Racing Series, with his latest win coming Friday night in Wisconsin.

“It’s not common that you can look at the stats and say you’ve won a third of the races. That’s a good stat,” Theriault said.

Another good stat is Theriault’s 175-point lead in the series standings. Theriault is driving the No. 52 Federated Auto Parts car owned by former NASCAR driver Ken Schrader. Theriault was hired in January for the full season, and the team had immediate success, winning the season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 18. Theriault also won June 3 at the smallest track on the circuit, the 3/8-mile Elko (Minnesota) Speedway. ... fast-lane/

...Fourth in ARCA race

Fort Kent driver Austin Theriault was in the hunt for his fourth victory in the ARCA Racing Series on Friday night in the Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indiana but a late-race caution flag, caused by rain, proved to be detrimental and he wound up finishing fourth.

It is the ninth top-five finish in 11 races for the series points leader.

Theriault’s closest pursuer in the points race, Dalton Sargeant of Boca Raton, Florida, won the race by getting four fresh tires during the caution which enabled him to rocket up through the pack. He passed Theriault and then race leader Michael Self with eight laps to go and pulled away for his second consecutive win. ... arca-race/

Fort Kent driver pads points lead in ARCA Racing series

...Theriault now has 3,305 points through 13 of 20 races while Sargeant has 3130.

Theriault, who was driving the No. 52 Ken Schrader Racing Ford, said on the ARCA Racing website that he was satisfied with the showing.

“When we struggle like we did today and overcome it, it teaches us a lot,” said Theriault. “We started the race way too free but, at the same time, the car wasn’t turning well either. You can’t adjust for both so we went the route to where I could at least drive it and it tightened up.

“Good day all things considered,” said Theriault ... ng-series/

Theriault reflects on wild last lap win

The win also clinched the Bill France 4 Crown championship, which is a combination of results a race at a superspeedway, short track, dirt oval, and a road course. Theriault takes us through what happened on that wild last lap. ... 51653.html
