AVONDALE, Ariz. – Only two challengers had chances to stop Ty Gibbs from winning Friday’s General Tire 150 at Phoenix Raceway in the closing laps.
One was Corey Heim. The other was rain, as sprinkles began to fall on the one-mile paved tri-oval in Avondale, Arizona, as the field prepared for the final restart.
Driving the No. 18 Pristine Auction Toyota for his grandfather’s Joe Gibbs Racking team, Ty Gibbs beat both his rival driver and the weather in a one-lap dash to the finish for his first win of 2021 on the ARCA Menards Series platform. The 18-year-old from Charlotte, North Carolina, now has nine wins on his ARCA Menards Series resume.
