John Lowinski-Loh Makes Field For Daytona ARCA Race; Tommy Barrett Jr. Misses The Show

ARCA LogoTwo local series drivers were at opposite ends of the emotional spectrum Friday at Daytona International Speedway.

Thompson Speedway Late Model division regular John Lowinski-Loh was riding the high of qualifying for his first career event at Daytona.

Lowinski-Loh, of Milford, Mass., was 22nd fastest of the 49 drivers in qualifying Friday for Saturday’s Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona. Lowinski-Loh will start 22nd in the 40-car field at Daytona.

Lowinski-Loh will be making his second ARCA Racing Series start. He made his series debut last October at Kansas Speedway, finishing 10th.

Tommy Barrett Jr., a winner on the Whelen Modified Tour last year, missed the field. Barrett was looking to make his series debut at Daytona.

Team owner Chris Our, who Barrett drove for full-time on the Whelen Modified Tour, is fielding the ARCA team for him this season with a part-time schedule planned.

Barrett was 34th fastest in time trials and was one of nine drivers to miss the field.

NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour regular Andy Seuss of Hampstead, N.H. also was left on the outside looking in on the field. Seuss was 38th fastest in qualifying.

Cole Powell, the 2013 Whelen Modified Tour Rookie of the Year, from Mount Brydges, Ontario, Canada, will start 38th driving for Team BCR Racing. Powell was 31st practice in qualifying and earned one of 10 provisional starting spots in the field.

Mark Thompson of Cartersville, Ga. will start on the pole for Saturday’s ARCA Racing Series season opener.
