Scott Speed Wins At Nashville

Scott Speed headed into Nashville determined to extend his points lead.
Mission accomplished, as Speed’s fourth ARCA RE/MAX Series victory of the
season padded his championship lead to 140 points over Matt Carter.

“This win is great,” said Speed, who led the final eight laps of the Toyota
150. “I just paced myself and remained calm within the last few laps, and it
all worked out. My hat is off to my guys. They are awesome, and they deserve
this more than anyone.”

Speed tested twice at Nashville over the past few weeks and felt confident
on the concrete. He capitalized on repeated on-track incidents between
Justin Allgaier and Sean Caisse, and passed Caisse with three laps to go.
Just as Speed took the white flag, another caution set up ARCA’s mandatory
green-flag finish, but Speed and the No. 2 Red Bull Toyota drove away from
second-place Jeremy Clements and won by five car lengths.

“When the opportunity presented itself,” Speed said, “I took it . just
played out the race and waited to lead until the end. Those are the only
laps you need to lead anyways.”
With seven races remaining, Speed leads the series in all major statistical
categories – four wins, nine top fives and 12 top 10s.
