Bobby Gerhart wins Eighth ARCA Daytona Race in Last Lap Mayhem

[media-credit name=”arcaracing.com” align=”alignright” width=”300″][/media-credit]For the eighth time in his career, Bobby Gerhart won the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway.

Gerhart came home with the victory after coming from fifth to first off of corner four when both Brandon McReynolds and Chris Windom ran out of fuel.

“Unreal,” Gerhart said. “That last lap was a dream. I always learned to take what was infront of me. I just went high and all it takes is for the leader to mess up.”

Gerhart had to start at the back after failing post-qualifying inspection when he had qualified on the pole.

The race ran clean till seven laps to go when James Hylton spun off the bottom, collecting Sloan Henderson and Rick Clifton. Some drivers pitted while others stayed out.

The race restarted with five to go, before a last caution with three to go. The caution came out after Nelson Canache spun Chris Buescher in the tri-oval. Once again, some drivers pitted while others stayed out.

The green would come out for a green-white-checkered, which immediately drivers began running out of gas, including a whole group coming to the checkereds.

Unofficially, Drew Charlston finished second in his first ARCA start

“That was awesome,” Charlston said. “I feel like I won the race.”
