JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Corey LaJoie won the ARCA stop at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday for his first career victory in the series.

LaJoie is the son of Randy LaJoie, a two-time champion on NASCAR's second-tier circuit. It was only the second ARCA start for the 21-year-old LaJoie.

Justin Boston was leading late in the race, but ran out of gas and LaJoie took advantage. Ryan Blaney also was hurt by fuel problems.

Josh Williams was second, followed by Blaney, Will Kimmel and Chad Boat.

Frank Kimmel, who is tied for the ARCA record with 79 wins, was ninth. Kimmel's 79 wins have come at 28 tracks, including Chicagoland Speedway in 2003.
