WINCHESTER, Ind. (AP) - Former NASCAR driver Ken Schrader won the pole Saturday for the ARCA Racing Series event Sunday at Winchester Speedway.

The 59-year-old Schrader had a track-record lap at 113.737 mph on the half-mile track that is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

“It’s a fast track,” Schrader said. “Anytime a track stays around for 100 years, it must be doing something right.”

Schrader also was the fastest in both practice sessions, taking a short nap after the opening practice.

“I took that nap and was kind of re-energized,” Schrader said. “It took me a while to get going in the second practice session, though. I think I forgot everything I learned from the first session.”

He has 17 career ARCA victories and 18 series poles.

Brandon Jones will start second in his ARCA debut. Anderson Bowen qualified third, followed by John Wes Townley and Mason Mitchell. Points leader Grant Enfinger will start seventh.
