Frank Kimmel wrapped up his record 10th ARCA championship before Friday night's race at Kansas Speedway simply by turning practice laps earlier in the day. That gave Kimmel enough points to secure the points title before the season finale. Kimmel won his first championship in 1998, and at one point won eight straight. But he hadn't won the title since 2007, and went a couple of years without even winning a race. Kimmel said there were times he wondered whether he would ever get to Victory Lane again, but last year he bounced back to finish second to Chris Buescher in the championship. He has 79 career wins, tied with Iggy Katona for the most in ARCA, and has won twice at Kansas.
