Conventional wisdom suggested the General Tire 150 at Phoenix Raceway would apply some heat to the early ARCA Menards Series championship race. Indeed, through two races in 2021, the winner of the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway, Corey Heim, has just a three-point lead in the standings over second-place Ty Gibbs after the latter won Friday’s 150-lap race in Avondale, Arizona.
AVONDALE, Ariz. – Only two challengers had chances to stop Ty Gibbs from winning Friday’s General Tire 150 at Phoenix Raceway in the closing laps. One was Corey Heim. The other was rain, as sprinkles began to fall on the one-mile paved tri-oval in Avondale, Arizona, as the field prepared for the final restart.
