(SALEM, Ind. – Oct. 27, 2014) – ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards veteran Brett Hudson put his ARCA skills to good use Sunday at Salem Speedway, adding another Lucas Oil Great American Stock Car trophy to his growing collection by capturing the 26th annual Halloween 200.

 

With the victory, the Owensboro, Ky. driver, who started second in the field of 47 cars, joins Chuck Barnes, Sr. as the only drivers to win more than two Halloween 200 races. Hudson, who visited victory lane in 2010 and 2012, has now won three of the last five Halloween 200s.

 

Hudson, who has made 31 career ARCA Racing Series starts since 2005, finished a career-best fourth at Talladega Superspeedway in 2011 and fourth at Salem in 2007. He is also the nephew of veteran crew chief Donnie Richeson, who heads-up Ken Schrader Racing.

 

Hudson worked traffic to perfection all afternoon long and stayed in the top five for most of the race before taking the lead for good with about 35 laps remaining. He then outdistanced Frank Kimmel II of Borden, Ind., who had his car out front for a good portion of the race.

 

Kimmel, the 2011 race winner, finished second with Todd Kempf of Huntingburg, Ind., third, Johnny Magee of Carthage, Ind., fourth and Barnes, a seven-time race winner, fifth.

 

Brian Hopkins, Blake Hillard, Erik Brooks, Jason Thompson and Phil Jenkins made up the second five in that order.
