The Zinsser SmartCoat 200 will be the 31st race for the ARCA Menards Series at the 0.438-mile oval located just west of Grand Rapids in Marne. The most recent race, in 2018, was punctuated by a slam-bang dash to the finish in which current NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Joe Graf, Jr. muscled his way past NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship contender Zane Smith in the last corner of the last lap to steal the win by 0.041 of a second at the finish line.
Previous ARCA Menards Series winners at Berlin also include former series champions Bob Keselowski, Tim Steele, Frank Kimmel, and Justin Lofton, as well as current NASCAR Cup Series driver and hometown favorite Erik Jones. Jones won in 2013 at just 15 years of age, putting him on a trajectory to win the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship in 2015 along with a pair of Cup Series races. He now drives for Richard Petty Motorsports.
The Zinsser SmartCoat 200 will feature a full day of on-track activity starting with 45 minutes of practice for the ARCA Menards Series at 4:15 pm local time, followed by General Tire Pole Qualifying at 6 pm local, and the night’s 200-lap feature event at 8 pm ET. The Zinsser SmartCoat 200 will also be the fourth round of the 2021 Sioux Chief Showdown, a series-within-the-series that allows drivers younger than 18 years of age to compete for a championship. Ty Gibbs has won both of the Sioux Chief Showdown races so far in 2021 and has a six-point lead over Thad Moffitt in the standings entering the next round of the Showdown at Elko Speedway on July 10.
For those who cannot watch the action at the track, the Zinsser SmartCoat 200 will be televised live on MAVTV starting at 8 pm ET. For updated event information, please visit ARCARacing.com and TrackEnterprises.com.
