Brian Campbell has three kids, but only had two pairs of boxing gloves when he left home for Indianapolis, Indiana’s Lucas Oil Raceway. When Campbell gets home, he’ll have a third pair. Campbell scored his third win in the ARCA/CRA Super Series Fall Brawl 100 in dominating fashion on Sunday evening.
“Now all of my kids have boxing gloves to hit each other with,” joked Campbell over the PA at Lucas Oil Raceway.
Campbell started sixth, but it didn’t take long before he got to the lead. By lap 21 Campbell had caught and passed early leader Dalton Armstrong.
“These momentum-style race tracks suit my driving style really well,” Campbell told Speed51.com powered by JEGS after the race. “It’s very similar to Berlin Raceway (MI) where you hardly touch the brakes. It’s like a big circle and it’s all about momentum and you really get to drive it. It’s those little tracks that I haven’t adapted well to.”
Armstrong finished second behind Campbell, followed by Wes Griffith Jr., Chris Hacker and Cody Coughlin.
Armstrong was satisfied with his second-place run because he felt he was basically best-in-class.
“He was definitely the best car here. I knew after practice we would be fighting for second because his car just didn’t fall off,” said Armstrong. “I’m satisfied though. I suck here, so a second is good. We gained a little bit of points so now we’ll head to Winchester and see what we can do there.”
The ARCA/CRA Super Series season will come to an end on Sunday, October 9 at Winchester Speedway with the running of the Winchester 400.
