Well, that’s definitely a strong finish to the 2022 ARCA Menards Series season.
A great side-by-side battle for the win between Jesse Love and Grant Enfinger suddenly turned into a three-car battle for the victory that brought Sammy Smith the opportunity to take the lead.
To finish off the season in an electric fashion, Smith came out of virtually nowhere to move Jesse Love and Grant Enfinger up the track, to make a three-wide move on the inside and capture the victory.

That three-wide move by Sammy Smith propelled Kyle Busch Motorsports to the 2022 ARCA Menards Series Owner’s Championship, narrowly beating out the No. 20 of Venturini Motorsports – an entry split by Jesse Love and Corey Heim.
And well, let’s just say, there were a lot of people – specifically surrounding the Venturini Motorsports camp – that we’re overly pleased with the last-lap move for the championship.
