Schrader, who started on the outside pole, dominated the Menards 200 race leading three times for 163 laps. 

ARCA Series legend Iggy Katona was previously the oldest winner until Schrader's win Sunday afternoon. 

Schrader, making his 61st series start, notched his 16th career win--including five wins at Toledo. 

Thirty-one cars took the green flag with 15-year-old Kyle Benjamin starting on the pole. 

Benjamin also became the youngest driver to capture a pole in the series.   

Benjamin led the first 22 laps before giving way to Schrader due to mechanical issues. 

Schrader took control from there out leading 163 of the final 178 laps. 

The veteran driver swapped the lead with Grant Enfinger (48-59) and Josh Williams (127-129) while leading the final 71 circuits before an adoring full-capacity crowd.

Mason Mingus finished in second place followed by Frank Kimmel who fought back from an earlier spin in his No. 44 Toyota to claim third.

Justin Boston finished in fourth place after starting 11th, while Matt Tifft rounded out the list of top five finishers.

The race was slowed eight times for cautions for 45 laps.

Frank Kimmel (1330) maintains a slim 20-point advantage over Mason Mingus (1310) in the ARCA Series driver standings.

The ARCA Series, which has had five different winners to date this year, will take a week off before returning to action June 1, at Minnesota's Elko Speedway.
