There is nothing better than an old-fashioned short track race on a Saturday Night, at least that’s what Corey Heim and Venturini Motorsports will tell you, after the 18-year-old has to use his front bumper to get around Ty Gibbs for his fourth victory of the ARCA Menards Series season at Elko Speedway.

Heim, who entered the race with a slim margin over Ty Gibbs in the series’ point standings, used the final restart of the race with three laps to go, as his opportunity, shoving Gibbs’ No. 18 Toyota Camry deep into the first corner, allowing himself and Venturini Motorsports teammates Jesse Love and Gracie Trotter to claim the top-three spots.

Despite trading paint for the majority of the race’s final run, Ty Gibbs and Taylor Gray both notched top-five finishes. Nick Sanchez, Daniel Dye, Willie Mullins, Thad Moffitt and Adam Lemke rounded out the top-10.
