Corey Lajoie won the ARCA Series race at Pocono Raceway on Friday for his second victory in three career starts.
Lajoie also won two weeks ago at Chicagoland Speedway.
Frank Kimmel, the series points leader who is tied with Iggy Katona for the ARCA career victory record with 79, was second. Justin Boston was third, followed by Brennan Newberry and Spencer Gallagher.
LaJoie came from the rear of the 36-car field Friday to win in his first race at Pocono. The caution-free, 50-lap race saw the average speed top 162 mph.
LaJoie is the son of Randy LaJoie, a two-time champion on NASCAR's second-tier circuit.
