Vigh turned the car into a number of practice laps before hitting the track for qualifying. Vigh qualified for 14th with a 19.71 second lap time, the fastest lap of his day.
Vigh ran into some issues, as he overdrove the car into turns three and four, spinning the car out; however was quick to make a recovery back into competition without a scratch on the car. Vigh experienced an issue with the transmission shifter, which forced him behind pit road for a few laps. Once repaired, Vigh was back racing, which the race finished under green and Vigh found himself in 15th position.
“It was my first time behind the wheel of one of these types of cars. It also took me some time to get used to having two way communications with the spotter, which I am glad for Any Hillenburg’s coaching during the race,” added Vigh
“I really also want to thank Samuel K. Burlum and Extreme Energy Solutions Inc., for the opportunity they have given me. It’s been a good relationship thus far, and I would have not been able to be where I am at without them.”
“We are proud of the effort made by Andy Hillenburg, his crew, and of Vigh. This was the first time as a driver-team-crew-car-sponsor collectively working together all on the same race, and we are grateful of the hard work driver and team in order to put Extreme Kleaner available at Hardware Hank in the spotlight. They collectively have done a great job of presenting our brands and our partners in ARCA, and we look forward in working with Fast Track Racing and Vigh again,” commented Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, the parent company of Extreme Kleaner.
“Madison was a good event for our Fast Track/Extreme Kleaner Team. Tommy Vigh Jr. did a great job in his first ARCA outing. There were so many new things handed to him, and he handled it well. Vigh accomplished a 15th place finish, without any previous testing. We are looking forward to what Tommy can do and accomplish for us later in the season now that he has a race under his belt,” contributed Andy Hillenburg, of Fast Track Racing.
Vigh’s hot streak did not end with his ARCA debut run at Madison. Following the Herr’s Potato Chip 200, Vigh was back behind the wheel of his open wheel dirt sportsman car, the very next day at Orange County Fair Speedway, Middletown, New York.

In all five home track contests Vigh has had top (2) ten finishes, with (2) top 5 finishes and an eleventh place finish in the race prior to his ARCA debut.
