Frank Kimmel knew he had a great possibility to score his first ARCA victory with ThorSport Racing at the 2012 ARCA Mobile 200.
But three laps from the end of the series' inaugural event at the half-mile short track in Irvington,Alabama, Kimmel was spun out of a top-five finish. He ended up 17th, which ultimately doomed Kimmel's chances for a 10th career title. In 2013, he has several reasons to eagerly anticipate Saturday afternoon's second annual Mobile ARCA 200. First, Kimmel came out of the series' opener, three weeks ago at Daytona, fourth in the championship. But even more important, he's got a full season working with crew chief Jeriod Prince, who engineered two victories for Kimmel in the second half of last season.-ThorSport Racing
