WINCHESTER, Ind. (AP) - Frank Kimmel won the ARCA Racing Series event at Winchester Speedway on Sunday to tie Iggy Katona's series victory record of 79.

``Every once in a while you have one of those near flawless days,'' the 51-year-old Kimmel said. ``This was one of those days for us.''

Kimmel, Clarksville, Ind., won for the third time this season and the sixth at the track, leading 158 laps in 100-mile, 200-lap event. He held off teenager Austin Wayne Self at the finish.

``He had a fast car, but I knew if I didn't make a mistake, held my line and stayed in the middle and didn't spin out or something that he would have a hard time passing me,'' Kimmel said.

Kimmel started to think about win No. 79 just before the end of the race.

``It crossed my mind, but then I told myself not to think about it too early,'' he said. ``When I saw the checkered flag, it was a sort of a flood of emotion. It is a big deal.''
