Like every other time he has been behind the wheel of an ARCA Racing Series ride for Venturini Motorsports this season, Kyle Benjamin again had a head-turning run on June 1 at Elko Speedway (MN) in the Akona 250. Benjamin qualified third and ran amongst the front pack throughout the event after having to overcome several early on-track setbacks. He was in position and took the lead late, only to lose it in the final circuits due to pit strategy on a final restart. Still, Benjamin was able to hustle home for a seventh-place finish.
