Caisse Wins First Career ARCA Race

By  | 

Sean Caisse won his first career ARCA RE/MAX Series race, taking the lead and hanging on for the checkered flag when Ken Schrader's car ran out of gas with three laps to go.

The 23-year-old Caisse led a total of 254 laps in five races last year with a best finish of second. He got a chance for this race in the same Venturini Motorsports car Joey Logano used to win the 2008 event, yet appeared destined to finish behind Schrader.

Schrader, the 53-year-old longtime NASCAR driver, led a total of 185 laps. He was ahead by more than the length of the front straightaway when his engine sputtered out of fuel as the final 88 laps were run under green.

Schrader wound up seventh in Sunday's race.
