Dillon won the Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 150. It was the young driver's fifth win in just eight series starts.  

While it was an impressive win for the grandson of famous car owner Richard Childress, it was Chad Hackenbracht who was the story of the day.

The Ohio driver, making just his 15th series start in his family owned CGH Motorsports Chevrolet, wowed the fans driving from 30th to the race lead on lap 40. 

Hackenbracht led for 45 laps building as much as a nine second lead before disaster struck when he suffered a flat right front tire. Although Hackenbracht's car was clearly the fastest among the 33 starters, the flat tire relegated him to a disappointing 20th place finish.

Ty Dillon was there to take advantage of Hackenbracht's misfortune assuming the race lead on lap 85 of the 100-lap race. Dillon led the final 16 laps to take the win. 

Chris Buescher finished in second place .307 seconds behind the winner.

Two-time World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion Josh Richards finished in third place after capturing the pole in qualifying with a time of 30.421 seconds (177.509 mph).  

Chad McCumbee finished in fourth followed by previous race winner Andrew Ranger of Canada.

The race had four leaders including Josh Richards 1-11 (11 laps), Kyle Fowler 12-39 (28 laps), Chad Hackenbracht 40-84 (45 laps) and Ty Dillon 85-100 (16 laps).

The event had six cautions for a total of 36 laps.

The start of the race was delayed for just over five hours for rain and then to accommodate other events at the track. The green flag, however, finally waved at just after 10:00 pm.

The ARCA Racing Series returns to action this Saturday, June 11, at Pocono Raceway's 2.5-mile tri-oval. It is the first of two stops the series will make to the picturesque track.
