Brent Crews Scores ARCA Springfield Pole

Brent Crews scored the pole for the ARCA Menards Series’ second event in three days and its first dirt event of the year. Crews will lead the field to the green flag at The Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds for the Dutch Boy 150.

In only his second career national series start, Crews set quick time to score his first career General Tire Pole Award. The midget racing standout seems to be at home on Springfield’s dirt surface, even in a heavy stock car.
