Daniel Dye Holds Off Hard-Charging Ty Gibbs for First ARCA Menards Series Victory at Berlin

PC: GMS Racing | Twitter

Hey, wait a second…. that’s not Ty Gibbs….

Ladies and Gentleman, there’s a brand-new cat in town and it’s 17-year-old Daniel Dye, who in just his second career start in the ARCA Menards Series, has put a whoopin’ on the field to capture his first career victory in an ARCA-sanctioned event at Berlin Raceway, driving the No. 21 Race to Stop Suicide | Solar-Fit Chevrolet SS for GMS Racing.

In a Ty Gibbs-esque performance, the Deland, Florida-native totally demolished the field throughout the entire evening, leading every single lap at Berlin Raceway, something that hasn’t been done since 2001, when Tim Steele led all 200 laps in the ‘Pork The Other White Meat 200″ at the 0.438-mile facility.

Ty Gibbs finished in the runner-up position, with Corey Heim, Taylor Gray and Jesse Love rounded out the top-five. Nick Sanchez, Mason Mingus, Gracie Trotter, Owen Smith and Morgan Alexander rounded out the top-10.
