CRC Industries, Kyle Benjamin and MDM Motorsports Team up for Chicagoland ARCA Race
Benjamin Going for Second ARCA Victory of the Season
MOORESVILLE, N.C., Sep. 13 /BusinessWire/ --
Industries, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading specialty
chemicals for automotive service technicians and do-it-yourselfers, will
exhibit its CRC Brakleen® Brake Parts Cleaner on the No. 41 MDM
Motorsports ARCA Racing Series entry this week with driver Kyle
Benjamin. Benjamin, who drove full-time for MDM Motorsports last
season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and is a current member of Joe
Gibbs Racing's development program in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, will
pilot the No. 41 CRC BRAKLEEN Toyota Camry in Thursday night's
Scott 150 at Chicagoland Speedway.
Thursday's primetime event is the third race this season that CRC will
have a prominent role on a Benjamin-driven race car with the previous
two starts resulting in victories at Greenville-Pickens Raceway in the
NASCAR K&N Pro Series and Winchester Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series.
"I've been very fortunate this season with the opportunities I've had to
drive top-notch equipment and we're making the most of each start
whether it's Xfinity, ARCA or K&N," said Benjamin, who will make his 23rd
career ARCA Racing Series start in Thursday's 100-lap race. "We've
already taken CRC to Victory Lane twice this season and I know Mardy and
the crew will have another fast Toyota Camry this week at Chicago to add
to that total. I can't wait to get back to track and pick up where we
left off last month at Winchester."
MDM Motorsports has tallied four wins so far this season in ARCA Racing
Series competition and 11 total victories across the three series in
which the organization competes (NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, ARCA
Racing Series and NASCAR K&N Pro Series). Veteran crew chief Mardy
Lindley will once again be paired with Benjamin as the duo captured the
checkered flag last month at Winchester Speedway and scored three wins
and a runner-up points finish in the 2016 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East
season. Benjamin also has four starts in NASCAR Xfinity competition this
season with Joe Gibbs Racing with all four starts resulting in top-two
qualifying efforts and a runner-up finish at Iowa Speedway in July.
The ARCA Racing Series SCOTT 150 will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1
from Chicagoland Speedway on Thursday, September 14, with race coverage
beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT. General Tire Pole Qualifying will accompany
raceday activities at 5:35 p.m. EDT, and ARCAracing.com will provide
live timing and scoring and live chat of all on-track activities.
