Heavy rain pushed the Pennsylvania ARCA 125 from its Saturday afternoon scheduled start to early Sunday morning. But that didn't dampen the efforts of 19-year-old Ty Dillon.  

Dillon led 34 of 50 race laps en route to capturing his third win in a row. 

Forty-five cars were on hand vying for a starting spot in Saturday's Pennsylvania ARCA 125 race at Pocono Raceway. 

Georgia's Max Gresham captured the pole for the race after circling the 2.5-mile tri-oval in 53.535 seconds (168.114 mph). Ty Dillon was second with a time of 53.546 seconds (168.080 mph). 

With rain on Saturday postponing both the NASCAR truck race and the ARCA race, the teams took to the track shortly after 10:00 a.m. Sunday after the completion of the truck race.      

The 50-lap race had just two leaders including Max Gresham who led the race's first 16 circuits before he gave way to outside polesitter Ty Dillon. 

Dillon led the the final 34 laps to capture his seventh win of the season and extend his lead in the driver standings to 410 points over Grant Enfinger.

After the win, Dillon commented, "Getting seven wins in any series is such an accomplishment and to win three in a row is incredible." 

The rookie driver has now won nine of the 16 ARCA races he has competed in.

Tim George, Jr., winner of the June race at Pocono, finished in second place--.833 seconds behind Dillon.  

Chris Buescher finished in third place followed by Tom Hessert and Grant Enfinger in fourth and fifth, respectively.

The race had just two cautions, but they lasted for a total of 24 of the 50 race laps.

The ARCA Racing Series will take a week off before returning to action August 21, at the Illinois State Fairgrounds for the Allen Crowe 100. Two of the next three ARCA races will have the drivers competing on clay surfaces at 1-mile tracks.
