Late Blown Tire Denies Self Victory at Chicagoland

To say Michael Self’s day at Chicagoland Speedway ended in heartbreak would be an understatement. In an event that was added to Self’s schedule just two weeks before the ARCA Racing Series hit the track at Chicagoland, Self showed dominance in his Sinclair Oil No. 88 out of the Mason Mitchell Motorsports stable.
