SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Corey LaJoie took the lead for good with 33 laps remaining and went on to win Saturday's rain-delayed, 150-mile ARCA series race at Kentucky Speedway.

Fastest in Friday's practice but 13th on the starting grid on owners' points after rain washed out qualifying and the race, LaJoie returned to lead four times for 40 laps and earn his third victory this season.

LaJoie got his No. 17 Ford by the outside of Chad Boat's Toyota after a restart on lap 67 of 100 and used the clean air to beat Mason Mitchell's Ford by 2.564 seconds in his first Kentucky start.

He was followed by Spencer Gallagher, Boat and Grant Enfinger. Series points leader Frank Kimmel finished ninth after starting on the pole in a backup Toyota. He wrecked his primary car in practice.

Kimmel will clinch his 10th ARCA title by starting the series' next race at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 4.
