  • McCumbee savors victory

     BY COURTNEY McGARRY

    The driver of the No. 1 ModSpace Ford had just won the Allen Crowe 100 for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, leading the final 51 laps and easily pulling away in a couple late-race re-starts. A caution flag on Lap 99 could have been disastrous for McCumbee, but he got the jump on Tom Hessert on the seventh lap of overtime to win by six car lengths.
