17-year-old Kyle Weatherman wins ARCA race in New Jersey

MILLVILLE, N.J. (AP) Kyle Weatherman won the ARCA 150 on Sunday at New Jersey Motorsports Park for his first ARCA Racing Series, leading the final five laps in his road-course debut.

''We've been fast everywhere we've been this year. We just haven't had the good luck on our side,'' Weatherman said. ''Finally, to have good luck on our side and to get the victory here is just amazing.''

Weatherman took the lead from Cole Custer on Lap 62, and survived a late restart when his No. 22 Cunningham Motorsports Dodge went into the grass on the 12-turn, 2.25-mile course.

Cunningham Motorsports teammate Tom Hessert was second.

''We were fighting hard,'' Weatherman said. ''I gave it everything I had for the last three or four laps. I knew Tom and those guys were coming, so I had to go. I went a little too hard and ended up a little off the track. That could have been disastrous, but we got lucky.''

Josh Williams was third, followed by points leader Grant Enfinger and Custer.
