Thursday notes

  • Brittnie Lovin, a 19-year-old college student from Hamlet, N.C., will perform the National Anthem to kick off the Oct. 9, 2010 running of the ARCA Racing Series American 200 presented by Black’s Tire and Auto Service at Rockingham Speedway. Lovin, a 2009 graduate of Richmond Senior High School, has performed in various venues and churches throughout North and South Carolina and Georgia over the past decade.
  • Ty Dillon surged past Steve Arpin with five laps remaining in the Kansas Lottery 150 to win his first ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards race in just his second career start. In achieving victory, Dillon became the 14th different winner and the 12th different first-time winner in the series this season. The 18-year-old Dillon, a grandson of legendary NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, started fourth and kept the No. 41 Karl Chevrolet/Richard Childress Racing Development Chevrolet among the leaders throughout the race's early stages. The race was not Dillon's first taste of success at the ARCA level, but surely his sweetest. In July, Dillon finished second after winning the Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell at Iowa Speedway.
