ARCA Menards Series championship contender Travis Braden (No. 27 MatrixCare/Consonus Health Care/Liberty Village Ford) will return to ARCA/CRA Super Series competition this Saturday in the 31st running of the Glass City 200 at Toledo Speedway.
The race features twin 100-lap features for the ARCA/CRA Super Series template-bodied late models and the wedge-bodied ARCA Gold Cup late models.
Braden, a two-time ARCA/CRA Super Series champion, has raced a limited schedule in 2019. In five previous starts, he's collected four top-five finishes - all of them runner-up finishes - including in June at Toledo.
Braden has had a solid season in the ARCA Menards Series to this point. In 18 starts, he and his Don Fike-owned team have scored 14 top-ten finishes including two top-five runs. He led the points early in the season and currently sits fourth 210 points behind leader Michael Self. Braden is also in the hunt for the annual S&S Volvo Laps Completed Award, as he's completed 2289 laps so far and he is just 88 laps behind leader Bret Holmes with 300 scheduled laps yet to be raced.
Part-time ARCA Menards Series competitor Jack Dossey III is also entered as he tries to lock down the ARCA/CRA Super Series rookie of the year award. Dossey currently sits second in the series standings behind defending series champion Josh Brock.
Former ARCA Menards Series drivers Michael Simko and Cody Coughlin are also expected to enter the ARCA/CRA Super Series portion of the twin bill. Former series champions Brock and Logan Runyon are also entered, as is former race winner and the winner of the June ARCA/CRA Super Series winner Brian Campbell. Former winner J.R. Roahrig leads the ARCA Gold Cup late model entry list, along with Tyler Roahrig, Mike Root, Steve Needles, and Frank Jiovani.
Practice starts at 1 pm ET with time trials to follow at 4:30. The on-track autograph session is set for 5:30 pm ET and the first green flag of the night will follow pre-race activities which will kick off at 6:30 pm ET.
Braden will return to action in the ARCA Menards Series in the Herr's Potato Chips 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway on Saturday, October 5. Practice starts the day's activities at 2 pm ET, with General Tire Pole Qualifying at 5 pm ET. The 200-lap main event, scheduled for live broadcast MAVTV, will go green shortly after 8 pm ET.
