TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Brandon McReynolds passed Matt Lofton on the final lap to win the International Motorsports Hall of Fame 250 on Friday at Talladega Superspeedway.
Pushed by Chad Hackenbracht, the 20-year-old McReynolds claimed his first ARCA Racing Series victory with the outside pass through the tri-oval in the 94-lap, 250-mile race.
McReynolds is the son of former NASCAR crew chief and current television analyst Larry McReynolds. Lofton, the polesitter, was second and Hackenbracht third.
The race was marred by a late scare involving Mike Affarano. He smashed into the outer wall after Zach Ralston made contact from behind, then flipped six times before landing on the driver's side. He was treated and released.
