ARCA fall classic this weekend

Salem, IN - RFMS Racing driver Travis Braden takes to the track in the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic on Saturday at Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana. The race will be televised LIVE on MavTV beginning at 7:15 p.m. EDT. Braden continues to make strides after his best performance of the season in his last race, the General Tire Grabber 100 in DuQuoin, IL, where he led over 15 laps before a crash ended his race early with 30 laps to go. Last week's scheduled race event at Lucas Oil Raceway has been postponed to Saturday, October 6th, after heavy rains washed out the weekend in Indianapolis.

"I want to thank RFMS racing, our sponsors, and our team for supporting us on a very rainy Friday at Lucas Oil Raceway. Special shoutout to the many Matrixcare guests who showed up to their suite despite the weather! We, as a team, appreciate the excitement everyone behind us has shown, even in the less-exciting times like a washed-out raceday," Braden said. "We have set our sights on the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic on Saturday at Salem Speedway. We have reached a lot of milestones this season, but we are still very hungry for a win. There are three races left in the season, and we are putting our all into getting the job done. I think we have proven that we have the determination to do so."

Though this will be his first full season in ARCA, Braden is no stranger to the racing world. Braden’s passion for the sport of racing runs as deep as the valleys of the Appalachian Mountains. At tracks in Columbus and Xenia, Ohio, Travis secured more than 100 victories before he was 13, and at age 17 he notched 10 victories and was crowned the Columbus track champion, the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series State Champion and the NWASS National Rookie of the Year – all before graduating from high school. 

Braden is a two-time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion, and is continuing to be committed to the ARCA Racing Series for the remainder of 2018, where he'll work hard to emerge as a driving force in the ARCA Racing Series and beyond
