KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Oct. 14, 2016) – Chase Briscoe ended the season with an exclamation point, winning the Kansas 150 Friday night at Kansas Speedway and the 2016 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards national championship, all in his rookie year on the job.
“It’s so cool to finally reward Cunningham Motorsports with their first championship,” said Briscoe. “They’ve been in this sport for so long. The guys on this team work so hard…a lot of sweat and tears. They earned every bit of this championship. Really great to get Big Tine their first ever championship in racing.”
Briscoe, in the No. 77 Big Tine Ford, capitalized on the misfortunes of race leader Dalton Sargeant, who fell off the pace just 24 laps from the finish with ignition issues. With Sargeant out of the way, Briscoe sailed away to his sixth career ARCA Racing Series victory.
