"There isn't a greater place for Ross to get his first ARCA start than Madison," Matt Kenseth said. "That track has meant a lot to us through the years. We both have enjoyed some great times and have won some big races there. I really appreciate one of my racing heroes, Ken Schrader, giving Ross a chance and his first start in the ARCA series." 

THE LATE Jason Leffler will be honored with a race in his name at Wayne County Speedway in Illinois later this month.

Leffler died in June in a dirt track accident in New Jersey. He was a two-time winner on the NASCAR Nationwide Series and a one-time winner in the Truck Series.

The Jason Leffler Memorial race will take place Aug. 28. It will be a $5,000-to-win Midget race, in which 100 percent of the front entrance and 50 percent of the back entrance will go to a fund set up for Leffler's son, Charlie Dean Leffler. 

NATIONWIDE: An undisclosed illness has put Eric McClure in the hospital and he will be replaced by Jeff Green at this weekend's Nationwide race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Green, a former Nationwide Series champion and teammate of McClure's at TriStar Motorsports, will fill in behind the wheel for McClure in the No. 14 car at Saturday's Nationwide Children's Hospital 200.
