ARCA Max Gresham had an opening, and had no choice but to take it. Gresham led the final 47 laps at Mansfield Motorsports Park to win the Tim Richmond Memorial 200 in just his third career ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards start.

Gresham, a 17-year-old from Griffin, Ga., pushed his No. 71 Gresham & Associates Toyota to the lead on Lap 138 of 200 when previous leader Chris Buescher's right front tire went flat, causing the driver to pull onto pit road. Buescher's No. 17 David Ragan Fan Club Ford had seemingly been the class of the field, and Roulo Brothers Racing appeared to be well on the way to another victory at an Ohio short track after winning at Toledo in May.
