The 15-year-old South Carolina driver took the lead on lap 192 from Kyle Weatherman who stayed out during a late-race caution while Benjamin opted to pit for two fresh Hoosiers.

With the fresh rubber, Benjamin was able to track down and pass Weatherman with nine laps remaining in the race.

Kyle Benjamin took the win .417 seconds ahead of Kyle Weatherman.

Weatherman was followed by Frank Kimmel still searching for that elusive record 80th win.   

Ken Schrader finished in fourth place after starting tenth.

Mason Mitchell finished in fifth and was the first car one lap down. 

Justin Boston won the pole for the race circling the .555-mile bullring in 17.314 seconds (115.398 mph). 

Boston, who led 19 laps before suffering transmission issues which would end his day, finished 23rd among the field of 30 drivers.

The race had only three cautions for a total of 19 laps.

Just two races remain on the ARCA Racing Series schedule. 

Frank Kimmel takes a commanding 330 point lead in the driver standings to the next event this Friday, September 20, at Kentucky Speedway.
