Grant Enfinger races to 4th ARCA win of the season

MARNE, Mich. (AP) Grant Enfinger dominated at Berlin Raceway for his fourth ARCA Racing Series victory of the season, starting from the pole and leading 198 of 200 laps Saturday night.

The 30-year-old Enfinger, from Fairhope, Alabama, won for the second straight year on the 0.486-mile paved oval. He pushed his season points lead to 225 over Austin Wayne Self with five races left.

''I feel like we had the best car out there, bar none,'' Enfinger said. ''It didn't matter if it was a short run or long run. When we needed to save tires the car would still go fast. I didn't feel like I was abusing it that bad. You always fall off here. You are always sliding, but we slid less than everybody else.''

After winning the first three races of the season, Enfinger ended an 11-race drought in GMS Racing's No. 23 Chevrolet. He has 12 career victories in the series.

''It's the best car we've had in a long time,'' Enfinger said. ''You don't hit it that good that often. Jeff Stankiewicz and everybody at GMS Racing did a great job. We hit the balance about perfect. I don't know if you can hit it much better.''

Mason Mitchell was second, followed by Venturini Motorsports teammate Frank Kimmel, Brian Keselowski, Self and Josh Williams. Only six drivers finished on the lead lap.
