Gale led the final 28 laps en route to the win in front of a packed house. 

While the ARCA Series is celebrating its 60th anniversary season, it was the series' first trip to the 1/2-mile facility. 

There were a total of 41 cars posting times in qualifying with Arizona's Alex Bowman setting fast time. Bowman circled the track in 17.547 seconds (102.582 mph) to earn the pole. 

Chase Elliott, son of racing great Bill Elliott, narrowly missed winning the pole with a time of 17.555 seconds (102.535 mph). 

Thirty-five cars started the race which featured seven leaders among five different drivers. 

Drivers leading during the event included; Alex Bowman 1-28, 51-65 (43 laps), Chase Elliott 29-50 (22 laps), 15-yr-old Erik Jones 66-79 (14 laps), Cale Gale 80-127, 176-203 (76 laps) and Grant Enfinger 128-175 (48 laps).

The race was extended three laps due to a late race caution, but Gale, who had started ninth driving the Rheem Chevrolet #33, was able to defend the top spot for an exciting green-white-checker win. 

Chad Hackenbracht finished in second place .634 seconds behind the race winner. 

Pole sitter Alex Bowman settled for a third place finish followed by Mikey Kile and Clint King in fourth and fifth, respectively.

The race was slowed for cautions 11 times for a total of 65 laps.

Unofficially, Cale Gale is in the lead in the ARCA driver standings with 405 points followed by Brennan Poole (390) and Chad Hackenbracht (380).  

The ARCA Series takes some time off before returning to action April 29, at Salem Speedway.

Hoosier is proud to be in its 18th consecutive season as the exclusive tire provider for the ARCA Series.
