ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) - Chris Buescher took advantage of a last-lap mistake by Chase Elliott to take the lead, then held on to win in a wild finish to Saturday's ARCA race at Road America.
Elliott, the son of former NASCAR champion Bill Elliott, was dicing for the lead with Andrew Ranger on the last lap when the two came to Turn 5, a sharp left-hander at the end of a long straightaway on the four-mile road course in Central Wisconsin. Elliott's car swerved off line and Ranger got loose as well, allowing Buescher to take the lead.
Ranger finished second, followed by Tom Hessert, Elliott and Ryan Blaney.
It's another display of impressive potential for the 17-year-old Elliott, who won the ARCA race at Pocono two weeks ago.
