KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A year ago, Chase Briscoe was showing up at racetracks looking for a ride.Now hes the ARCA champion.The 22-year-old newcomer from Mitchell, Indiana, wrapped up the series title Friday night, when he took to the track for the series finale. He won the race, bringing owners Briggs Cunningham and Kerry Sherer the championship that has long eluded them.Last year, I was just going to the stops, going to the races. Really didnt know what I was doing -- probably still dont, Briscoe said. I was just trying to get an opportunity, and this has totally changed my life. Ive met a lot of people I wouldnt have met if I didnt get this opportunity.Sherer said he hadnt even heard of Briscoe, who came up through sprint cars, before hearing his name twice in a one-week stretch last year. So, Sherers Cunningham Motorsports team decided to give Briscoe a test ride in Alabama, then were impressed to give him another try at Fairgrounds Speedway in Tennessee.I didnt know him, but I called him and asked if hed be interested, Sherer said. Hes the kind of kid guys like me like to have around because hes so respectful.I saw the likeability first and then saw the race ability.That ability manifested itself in six wins and 14 top-five finishes this season -- and a big margin in the point standings.

While Cunningham could not be at the track for the series finale, it was still an opportunity for the team to revel in its success.I feel like an overnight sensation, Sherer said.
