TALLADEGA -- Frank Kimmel is 51 and still fabulous on the ARCA Racing Series.

The nine-time champion dominated today's ARCA International Motorsports Hall of Fame 250 before the rain settled in at Talladega Superspeedway, and he was in front when officials flagged the race on lap 73 of 94.

Kimmel bagged his 77 ARCA victory and first this season. He came into the race as the series points leader and expanded the lead from 30 to 40 points, unofficially, over second-place finisher Mason Mingus.

Kimmel, who turned 51 Tuesday, won the ARCA series in 1998 and again from 2000-07. Four races into the 2013 season, he’s looking strong.
