Xenia OH (7/6). The ARCA Truck Series mades its first of two stops at the Xenia oval Friday (7/6) . The 100 lap grind started out with temperatures at or near the 100 degree mark. Chad Poorman took over the lead at the drop of the green flag and led the first for the first counters before giving way to Chris Bailey. Bailey was setting a torrid pace before a front chute crash brought out a red flag on lap 12. Danny Jackson, the current point leader was caught up with Poorman and the lapped truck of Steve Perkins. Local driver Levi Mansfield of Oakwood then took over the helm. Mansfield had already proven he was the man to beat by setting quick time, but no one expected the youngster to dominate the event. Mansfield set a track record and lapped the field to post his first ARCA TRUCK SERIES win. Chris Bailey, Steve Christman ,Cody Quarrick and Brandon Huff rounded out the top five
The NASCAR WHELEN RACING SERIES weekly stars were also part of the racing card.

Longstreth led all 25 laps to notch his first ever win. Phil Gussler Jr. was second, with Stump third, Tyler Mahaffey fourth and Jamie Sites fifth.
In the late model division West Virginia driver Travis Braden made his 2012 debut a good one, as he set quick time and won the 30 lap feature in a strong effort. Dick Dunlevy Jr. saw his win streak come to an end, as he could only watch Braden take the checker in his Senneker Performance chevy. Shawn Stansell, Bob Sibila and Cal Busch finished out the top five.
In modified racing, Daryl McKay set fast time in his blue modified. When the race started it was Xenia's Ryan Fleming the man on a mission, as he jumped out front at the drop of the green and never looked back as he put his Cupps;s Distributing open wheeler in victory lane for the seventh time this season.
