The final restrictor plate race of the season is upon the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and Carter-2-Motorsports, one of the full-time teams on the tour will field four Dodge Chargers in Friday’s International Motorsports Hall of Fame 250 at Talladega Superspeedway.
On the heels of their season-best finish last Sunday afternoon at Salem (Ind.) Speedway, the Mooresville, North Carolina-based team is hoping to turn the finish into some momentum at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.
