Daytona Newcomer Dominique Van Wieringen Leads Final Test for ARCA Menards Series Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona International Speedway

First-timer Dominique Van Wieringen led the way in the final day of testing for the ARCA Menards Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway. The two-day test session, leading into the February 10 Lucas Oil 200 Driven by General Tire, was plagued both days by overnight rain showers that delayed the start, but the teams on hand were able to get nearly 15 hours of track time over the course of both days.

 

Van Wieringen, who has a career-best third place finish in the ARCA Menards Series East at Langley Speedway, piloted the No. 30 Rette Jones Racing Ford to a fast lap at 49.615 seconds/181.397 miles per hour. Van Wieringen’s fast lap also marks the second consecutive season a female driver led the way in a test session at Daytona as now-retired Leilani Munter led the first day of the open test last year.

 

“I was really surprised when Mark (Rette) said we went to the top of the charts,” Van Wieringen said. “I was practicing trying to time the draft for qualifying and I didn’t get it times just right. Hopefully when we come back for the race I can time it out a little better in qualifying and get even more.

 

“It’s been a good experience. It’s really intimidating because you go really fast and when things go wrong they go wrong really fast. For the first time out, it was better than I thought it would be. It was actually really relaxing. I don’t know how to explain it, it was just really relaxing.”

 

World of Outlaws star David Gravel (No. 28 KBR Development Chevrolet) timed in second fastest at 49.659 seconds/181.236 miles per hour. Gravel is slated to run a partial season for GNS Racing in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and will get his pavement career started in the ARCA Menards Series opener at Daytona.

Sean Corr (No. 8A Empire Racing Chevrolet) was third fastest with a lap at 49.676 seconds/181.174 miles per hour. He was followed closely by a trio Venturini Motorsports teammates, last year’s season runner-up and former Daytona winner Michael Self (No. 25 Venturini Motorsports Toyota), Drew Dollar (No. 15 Venturini Motorsports Toyota), and Ryan Repko (No. 20 Venturini Motorsports Toyota).

 

Self timed in with a lap at 49.684 seconds/181.145 miles per hour, Dollar just behind at 49.687 seconds/181.145 miles per hour, and Repko at 49.691 seconds/181.119 miles per hour.

Alabamian Bret Holmes (No. 23 Bret Holmes Racing Chevrolet) was seventh at 49.707 seconds/181.061 miles per hour, the final driver over 181 miles per hour. Riley Herbst, who led Friday morning’s session in the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, was eighth at 49.799 seconds/180.727 miles per hour, just in front of the two Chad Bryant Racing teammates Jacob Heafner (No. 77H Chad Bryant Racing Ford) and yesterday’s overall fastest Connor Hall (No. 22C Chad Bryant Racing Ford).

 

Other notables throughout the field included former Talladega winner Gus Dean (No. 32 Win Tron Racing Chevrolet) in twelfth, former NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock national champion Tanner Gray (No. 17 DGR-Crosley Ford) in 13th, Hailie Deegan (No. 4 DGR-Crosley Ford) in 16th, and Tom Hessert III (No. 77H Chad Bryant Racing Ford) in 20th.

 

Two ARCA touring champions, ARCA CRA Super Series champion Greg Van Alst and ARCA Menards Series East champion Sam Mayer, took part in Saturday’s action making single-car runs in a car prepared by two-time Daytona winner and 1995 series champion Andy Hillenburg. Van Alst timed in 28th quickest at 51.527 seconds/174.666 miles per hour, while Mayer was 34th at 51.939 seconds/173.280 miles per hour.

 

The Lucas Oil 200 Driven by General Tire is scheduled for Saturday, February 10 with the green flag expected to wave over the field at 4:45 pm ET. The race will be televised live flag-to-flag on FS1; ARCARacing.com will have live timing & scoring throughout practice, General Tire Pole Qualifying, and the 80-lap, 200-mile feature event.

 

 

Connor Hall Leads the Way in Rain-Shortened ARCA Menards Series Friday Test at Daytona

 

On a day that started off delayed due to a wet track surface, the ARCA Menards Series open test at Daytona was also cut short Friday afternoon by inclement weather. Connor Hall (No. 22C Chad Bryant Racing Ford) had just moved to the top of the leaderboard as a group of drivers had started to work the draft, raising speeds above 180 miles per hour.

 

Hall's fast lap of 49.711 seconds/181.046 miles per hour just narrowly nipped Ronnie Osmer's fastest lap. Osmer (No. 02O Our Motorsports Chevrolet) timed in with a lap at 49.754 seconds/180.890 miles per hour, just 0.043 seconds off Hall's fastest lap.

 

"We were working on single car runs this morning," Hall said. "We had a game plan to work on the car and getting air where we wanted it. We made some gains and learned some things we liked and didn't like. That's what testing is all about. We were focused on what we needed to be better on last year. We have a great racecar. We are happy but not totally happy so we'll get back to work tomorrow."

 

Chad Bryant Racing's Jacob Haefner (No. 77H Chad Bryant Racing Ford) was third at 49.767 seconds/180.843 miles per hour.

 

"It was a learning curve atthe beginning," Haefner said. "I calmed myself down and got to driving. It is a big change coming from late models on short tracks. We worked a little on single car runs and then got out there in the draft a little. We're learning a lot and ready to come back in February."

 

Ty Gibbs (No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota) was fourth quick at 49.772 seconds/180.825 miles per hour and Andy Suess (No. 02S Our Motorsports Chevrolet) rounded out the top five at 49.828 seconds/180.621 miles per hour.

 

Others that teamed up to work the draft and exceed 180 miles per hour included Gus Dean (No. 32 Win Tron Racing Chevrolet), Riley Herbst (No. 18H Joe Gibbs Racing Chevrolet), Dominique Van Wieringen (No. 30D Rette Jones Racing Ford), and her brother Tristan Van Wieringen (No. 30T Rette Jones Racing Ford). Bret Holmes (No. 23 Bret Holmes Racing Chevrolet) rounded out the top ten.

 

Thirty-seven drivers took time of the 50 that have registered. No incidents were reported throughout the day.

 

The two day test in preparation for the ARCA Menards Series season opening Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire, set for Saturday, February 10, will continue tomorrow morning at 9 am ET with the afternoon session set for 1 pm ET. Live timing and scoring will be available throughout the day at ARCARacing.com.

General Tire Extends ARCA Official Tire Through 2024

 
 

General Tire has extended its exclusive tire supplier agreement with the ARCA Menards Series in a multi-year agreement that will also see the company become the official tire supplier of the ARCA Menards Series East and West. ARCA’s relationship with General Tire was announced at the season finale at Kansas in 2015, and as it has over its initial four seasons, will include race entitlements, at-track activation and billboards, broadcast activation, and at-track service for teams at each of the races in the ARCA Menards Series and ARCA Menards Series East and West.

 

With a long history of producing passenger vehicle and light truck tires that make “anywhere possible”, General Tire’s racing roots began by developing tires for off-road racing, showcasing industry-leading tire technologies. That “born in competition” tradition continues with their line of ultra-high performance passenger tires. After four years of experience in the ARCA Menards Series, the company has found the same success in stock car racing, putting the 103-year-old brand in front of millions of loyal fans via live broadcasts on FOX Sports and MAVTV, tape-delayed broadcasts on NBCSC, and live streams on NBC Sports Gold.

 

“General Tire has been a fantastic partner over the last four seasons,” said ARCA president Ron Drager. “They have supported the series by sponsoring races at some of the biggest venues in America, supported our live broadcasts, and created a lot of really great activities and content for our fans at the track. And most importantly they have brought a consistent race tire that our teams can count on from the high-speed tracks like Daytona and Talladega to the dirt tracks at Springfield and DuQuoin and to the road courses like Mid-Ohio and Watkins Glen. We’re extremely pleased to have General Tire on board with the ARCA Menards Series and ARCA Menards Series East and West for 2020 and beyond.”

 

“We’re pleased to announce the extension of our partnership with the ARCA Menards Series and look forward to expanding our presence by adding the ARCA Menards Series East and West,” said Travis Roffler, Director of Marketing, General Tire. “Our team works hard to provide competitive, action-packed racing each week for the fans and we’re proud to continue that tradition and to build on the relationship we established in 2016.”

 

General Tire’s agreement includes official tire and sole supplier status for the ARCA Menards Series and ARCA Menards Series East and West and will run through the conclusion of the 2024 season.

 

The 2020 ARCA Menards Series season starts with the 57th annual Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 8. The race will be broadcast live on FS1 starting at 4:30 pm ET. ARCARacing.com will have live timing & scoring of all on-track sessions free for registered users.

 

ARCA Menards Series West 2020 Schedule Announced Historic Venues To Showcase Championship Race

 

TOLEDO, Ohio (Jan. 6, 2019) – The ARCA Menards Series West will continue the history of one of the longest-running stock car series in the United States with a 10-race championship schedule in 2020. The slate will include visits to seven western states and include stops at some of the most iconic venues in the region.

 

In its first season under the ARCA banner, the West Series will continue the lineage of crowning series champions that dates back to Lloyd Dane’s Pacific Coast Late Model Division title in 1954.

 

The slate brings the total ARCA Menards Series calendar to 38 races over 34 weekends, covering the ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East and the inaugural Sioux Chief Showdown. The showdown is a 10-race super series within the 20-race ARCA Menards Series bringing the best drivers from all three series together.

 

“Equally important as we move forward with the ARCA Menards Series was ensuring that we maintained the traditions of each of the series,” said ARCA Series president Ron Drager. “We’re very pleased to be able to build a schedule that will not only bring out the best in the drivers over a variety of venues, we were also committed to continuing our relationships with the tracks that have helped build the West series.”

 

The 67th season will take the green flag at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Thursday, Feb. 20, with the Star Nursery 150 kicking off the Pennzoil 400 weekend at LVMS. The ARCA Menards Series West championship will culminate at Phoenix Raceway on Saturday, Nov. 7, as part of the NASCAR championship weekend.

 

The West Series has run all three venues at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, including seven times on the Bullring, dating back to the 1994 race won by future NASCAR Hall of Famer Ron Hornaday Jr. Last year, Hailie Deegan won a thrilling final lap clash with Jagger Jones to take the checkered on the neighboring half-mile Dirt Track at LVMS. This season, the series will take its action to the fast .375-mile asphalt oval.

 

Phoenix Raceway has hosted the West since 1977 when another future NASCAR Hall of Famer, Cale Yarborough, won the season finale, and Bill Schmitt won his first of four titles. Ty Gibbs won the 2019 race as Derek Kraus was crowned the series’ champion.

 

Other schedule highlights include:

  • The ARCA Menards West schedule will include its annual road-course event on Saturday, June 13 at Sonoma Raceway. The winding, multi-elevation course in northern California, first hosted the series in 1969 and has been a staple of the schedule every year since 2006.
  • The three jewels of California short tracks will play crucial roles in the ARCA Menards Series West championship, beginning Saturday, March 28, at Irwindale Speedway and continuing in October at All American Speedway in Roseville (Saturday, Oct. 10) and Kern County Raceway Park (Saturday, Oct. 24). The West has been a regular visitor to Irwindale, outside of Los Angeles, since it opened in 1999, and Kern County since it opened in Bakersfield in 2013. All American, a fairgrounds short-track near Sacramento, first hosted the series in 1977 and has been on the schedule every year since 2008.
  • The Pacific Northwest will again be home to a pair of races. The Douglas County Speedway on the fairgrounds in Roseburg, Oregon, will welcome the series on Saturday, May 16, while the historic Evergreen Speedway will bring the series to Monroe, Washington, on Saturday, Aug. 8. Roseburg, located south of Portland and Eugene, has held 17 races, including each of the last five years. Evergreen, outside of Seattle, held its first West race in 1964. This year will be the 60th race at the Super Speedway of the West.
  • Meridian Speedway in Idaho will host the Idaho 208 on Saturday, Aug. 29. The quarter-mile track held one West race in 1972, and has been part of the schedule every year since 2015, including Deegan’s historic first career NASCAR win in 2018.

 

The Sioux Chief Showdown will feature a separate points championship and will include several traditional West race dates, including the annual combination races at Iowa Speedway and WWT Raceway at Gateway. It will open the season on Friday, March 6 at Phoenix Raceway.

 

The complete NBCSN and TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold schedules for the ARCA Menards Series West, including broadcast times, will be released at a later date.

Sioux Chief to Sponsor ARCA’s “Showdown” Series

Ten Race “Mini-Series” to See ARCA Menards Series Compete with East and West Teams

 

Sioux Chief Manufacturing, one of America’s leading rough plumbing components manufacturers, has signed on become the entitlement sponsor of the ARCA Menards Series Showdown in 2020. Sioux Chief has been the sponsor of ARCA’s former Short Track Challenge since the 2017 season and has agreed to increase its involvement to support one of the major initiatives of NASCAR’s acquisition of ARCA.

 

The newly increased point fund, combined with race purses, owner plan, and contingency awards, will now offer racers a chance to compete for their share of over $920,000 in posted awards throughout the ten-race series.

 

“The Sioux Chief Showdown will bring together the best teams from the ARCA Menards Series and the ARCA Menards Series East and West to give racing fans a show they’ve never seen before and we are honored to be a part of it,” said Sioux Chief Manufacturing Company president Joe N. Ismert. “We have seen a lot of great drivers and great races in the Short Track Challenge over the past three seasons and we’re excited to see what 2020 will bring.”

 

Since 2015, Sioux Chief has been involved in the series as a race event sponsor and special awards program sponsor. The Racing Vendor business-to-business relationship with series entitlement sponsor Menards has not only created memorable moments on the race track, but has put Sioux Chief products in front of millions of customers in America’s third-largest home improvement retail chain and created brand awareness among millions of spectators watching at the track and on live national television.

 

The Sioux Chief Showdown is a ten-race series within a series that will bring together the best of the best from the ARCA Menards Series, the ARCA Menards Series East and ARCA Menards Series West, formerly known as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Those events, held on oval tracks 1.25-miles in length and under and road courses, offer drivers who may not be able or eligible to run the full 20-race ARCA Menards Series schedule the opportunity to run for a championship. Combined with the overall ARCA Menards Series championship, and the East and West championships, drivers will have four separate championships to compete for in 2020.

 

We are looking forward to participating in the Sioux Chief Showdown in 2020," says Max Siegel, owner of Rev Racing. "As we approach this new series and this new level of competition, we are working hard to make the necessary preparations with our crew and team. We have a really talented group of drivers on the 2020 roster and look forward to a year of successful finishes."

 

The Sioux Chief Showdown will take its first green flag of the season on March 6 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix and conclude on September 26 at Memphis International Raceway. In between will be races at Salem Speedway, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lucas Oil Raceway, Elko Speedway, Iowa Speedway, WWT Raceway, Watkins Glen International, and Bristol Motor Speedway. The complete Sioux Chief Showdown broadcast schedule, including race start times and broadcast networks, will be released in the coming weeks.

 

The announcement took place at the Indiana Convention Center on the final day of the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show, and the site Saturday night’s ARCA Menards Series Championship Awards Banquet. Ismert was on hand to present Christian Eckes the 2019 Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge championship trophy. Eckes, also the overall ARCA Menards Series champion, has signed to race in the NASCAR Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series with Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2020.

Christian Eckes and Billy Venturini Headline ARCA Menards Series Championship Awards Banquet
 
 

Christian Eckes and the Venturini Motorsports team collected the Lion’s share of the awards in Saturday night’s ARCA Menards Series Championship Awards Banquet at the Indiana State Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis.

 

Eckes (No. 15 JBL Audio Toyota) won four times in 2019 his way to the championship, which he won by 25 points over his teammate Michael Self. Eckes, who is moving to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series with Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2020, told the gathered audience he owed a debt of gratitude to the Venturini family for his success.

 

“I came to Venturini Motorsports when I was just a little guy,” Eckes said. “I grew up with Bill and Cathy and Billy and Emily and they feel like family to me. We’ve come a long way together and to have this success we’ve had is something I will remember forever.”

 

Eckes again thanked his team for their hard work and dedication throughout and up-and-down season.

 

“There were a lot of 2 am phone calls and texts with me and (crew chief) Kevin Reed,” he said. “None of us were happy with how the first part of the season went. In fact, I still get a little frustrated at it because I knew we were all better than that. But Kevin and the team worked hard every week and got us back to where we needed to be. This championship is theirs as much as it is mine.”

 

Although he finished second in the standings, runner-up Self (No. 25 Sinclair Lubricants Toyota) paid tribute to Eckes as he addressed the over 300 attendees in the Sagamore Ballroom.

 

“It has been a great honor to race alongside you and to get to know you as a competitor and as a friend,” Self said to Eckes from the stage. “I will always take a lot of pride in the conversations we had, whether it was just making jokes to each other or talking about how to become better racecar drivers. Although, around lap 70 at Kansas I was kind of wishing I didn’t share as many of those secrets with you. But like everyone else here in this room, we can’t wait to see what is in store for you in the future.”

 

Team owner Billy Venturini also spoke about his championship season, a season in which his organization won fourteen times and claimed both the driver’s championship with Eckes and the owner’s championship with the No. 20 car.

 

“To all my team in the shop, thank you,” Venturini said. “We couldn’t do this without you. You are the backbone of what we do and we are all proud to have accomplished this together as a team. To all of the up-and-coming drivers out there, they need to look at what Christian has done as use him as the template for themselves.

 

“Everything he does, he does to become a better racecar driver and a better person. He had shoulder surgery in the off-season to make himself a better racecar driver. And you know, he’s already a damn good driver and he’s an even better person. We’ve worked with a lot of really good racecar drivers and Christian, you are definitely one of the very best.”

 

ARCA president Ron Drager opened the evening’s festivities by presenting the coveted ARCA championship rings to Eckes and Venturini, then stayed on stage to present the Marcum Award to NASCAR Vice-Chairman Mike Helton.

 

“Mr. Helton has been a long-time supporter of ARCA, first as a track operator at places like Atlanta, Daytona, and Talladega, and then with ISC and then with NASCAR,” Drager said. “That support has never wavered, and everyone in ARCA owes their thanks to everything he has done for us over the years.”

Crumrine Gold & Silversmiths is one of the world's largest and most progressive manufacturers of belt buckles, jewelry and accessories. Crumrine began as a small jewelry manufacturer in Santa Ana, California in 1948. Founded by Charles and Marjorie Crumrine, the operation grew to become Orange County's largest custom jewelry design, production and repair business.

 

The Crumrine family relocated the company to Reno, Nevada in the fall of 1979. Then nestled against the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Comstock silver mining region, Crumrine continued in the legacy of hand crafted products made in the U.S.A.

 

In the fall of 2007, M&F Western Products based out of Sulphur Springs, Texas purchased Crumrine Manufacturing. Since then, the company has continued in the hand crafted practices with production facilities in Mexico. They now market and distribute its products in territories in the continental U.S. and around the world.

Each buckle still receives the same hand craftsmanship, hand finishing and hand inspection that went into the company's earliest products. By using the latest tooling and manufacturing techniques, Crumrine maintains its long-standing edge in the categories of engraving depth, detail, luster of finish and overall merchandise selection.  More than ever, Crumrine products are synonymous with the word "keepsake".

 

Throughout its 67+ year history, the company has successfully maintained several important operating philosophies. The most notable of these is the company's continued use of the finest quality manufacturing materials available - without compromise. In addition, Crumrine is committed to the type of professional customer service that ensures real accountability. Crumrine also continues to focus its new product development efforts on creating original styles and designs, with the promise of meeting the latest fashion trends. Last but certainly not least, is Crumrine's commitment to the lifestyles it serves.

Mooresville, NC 12/10/19 – The CARS Super Late Model Tour will introduce an all new touring program for the 2020 season. The “Super Six” program is a touring loyalty program dedicated to teams receiving additional financial and promotional benefits for participating full time on the CARS Super Late Model Tour in 2020. The program is modeled after the highly successful Touring 12 program for the Late Model Stock tour that has seen car counts sky rocket over the last two seasons.

The “Super Six” program for Super Late Models is a touring loyalty program that will consist of six Super Late Model teams that plan to compete in every points event for the 2020 season. Multiple benefits of the “Super Six” program will include: $100 savings per set of tires purchased at the track each race, $150 cash travel bonus at each event, two complimentary race tickets to all CARS SLM Tour points races, and multiple other financial and promotional benefits throughout the year. 

In order for teams to participate in the “Super Six” program, CARS SLM Tour teams must sign an agreement to participate in all regular season races and complete driver license, owner license, and annual race entry by March 3, 2020. Drivers will be required to have their name and likeness used on CARS Tour branding, and must be committed to participate in limited driver appearances throughout the season, along with running a special throwback scheme at the Throwback 276 set for August 1, 2020. Drivers who are eligible for the Rowdy Manufacturing Super Challenge are not eligible for the Super Six program.

“Ever since we introduced the Touring 12 program for Late Model Stocks, the Super Late Model guys have expressed the desire to have a similar program. It is something that we’ve really thought about and wanted to do, we just needed to see the support from the competitors. After a very good year with Super Late Models we fell that the 2020 season is the right time to see if we can start building a program like this, “explained CARS Tour Series Director, Chris Ragle. “We have to get six teams that want to build and invest in each other. That is the key to growing this program and the series for Super Late Models. I really hope teams will respond to this program, there’s no other series I can think of that does additional compensation for participating, and that is what this program is design for. It is about participation and not performance.”

Teams wanting to apply for the inaugural Super Six program can do so by visiting www.carsracingtour.com and clicking the “Super Six” application banner located in middle of the site’s home page. CARS Tour officials will also communicate the link to apply online, much like that to enter a race, via email throughout the application period.

Be sure to stay active and social with the tour by liking “CARS Tour” on Facebook, following @CARSTour on Twitter, and scrolling through photos on Instagram cars_tour.

Ten Point Races to Determine 2020 ARCA Midwest Tour Champion

Oregon, WI- The ‘Stars and Cars’ of the ARCA Midwest Tour will crown their Champion during the 51st annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend on Sunday afternoon October 11, following a ten race season which will take them throughout Illinois and Wisconsin to compete on paved oval circuits ranging in size from a quarter mile to a mile and a quarter in length. At the conclusion of the 2019 campaign, it was Casey Johnson of Edgerton, WI atop the standings, recording his first ever ARCA Midwest Tour Championship over fellow Touring Stars Austin Nason and John DeAngelis, Jr, on the strength of two wins.

Madison International Speedway will once again kick off the ARCA Midwest Tour season with the 12th running of the Joe Shear Classic on Sunday afternoon May 3. The $10,000 to win, 200 lap event at ‘Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile’ in honor of Midwest Racing Legend Joe Shear has become one of the most talked about events each season. Last year, race fans were treated to a show as Georgia’s Bubba Pollard methodically worked his way to the field and took command of the high side to fend off a hard charging Rich Bickle and 2018 JSC victor Austin Nason.

The Salute the Troops 100 on Saturday May 23 has become a traditional stop at Jefferson Speedway each Memorial Day Weekend. A multiple time Champion at ‘Wisconsin’s Action Track’, Casey Johnson recorded his first of two victories on his way to the 2019 Tour Title last May in a wild race that saw tight racing resulting in multiple three wide scenarios for position. 

After a highly anticipated return of racing to The Milwaukee Mile last June, the roar of Super Late Models will once again fill the air at ‘America’s Legendary Oval’ on Sunday afternoon June 14. After a highly contested one hundred mile contest that did not see Austin Nason secure the top spot until the final laps, there are more than a few of the Nation’s Top Super Late Model drivers that have this event on their list of marquee events to win.

Following a one year hiatus, a facility rich in history not only to Midwest Tour owner Gregg McKarns’ family, but to Super Late Model racing in general, returns to the ARCAMT schedule when the ‘Stars and Cars’ invade Grundy County Speedway to challenge Chicagoland’s best. The Wayne Carter Classic 100 presented by Rod Baker Ford and Illinois Truck & Equipment is set to take place on Saturday July 11, marking just one of a record seven ARCA Midwest Tour point races which will pay a minimum of $5,000 to the winner.

State Park Speedway and their Larry Detjens Memorial Weekend will once again welcome the Touring Stars into Central Wisconsin for a 125 lap battle in the shadow of Rib Mountain on Saturday night July 25. 2019 ARCAMT Rookie of the Year Gabe Sommers bested Championship contenders Johnson and Nason, Central Wisconsin’s Dillon Hammond and former SPS Champs Luke Fenhaus and Jeremy Lepak to record his first ever Tour triumph at the quarter mile paved oval when the Tour returned to be part of ‘Detjens Fest’ last July.

Wisconsin’s Richest One Day Race is scheduled on the traditional first Tuesday of August at Wisconsin International Raceway on August 4. Gandrud Auto Group’s support of short track racing in Wisconsin is unprecedented as the Gandrud Auto Group Dixieland 250 will continue to pay the largest purse in the state’s celebrated asphalt Super Late Model racing industry. With the winner’s share having gone to Minnesota and Alabama previously, Ty Majeski made sure it stayed in-state following a dominating performance last August, out pacing John DeAngelis, Jr and former ARCAMT Champ Dan Fredrickson.

The ARCA Midwest Tour is proud to announce that it will be part of the NASCAR and IndyCar Doubleheader Weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway this August. The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series iHeartRadio 200 will highlight the Friday Night August 21 activities. Then on Saturday August 22, the Midwest Tour will contest the Gateway Classic Super Late Model Showdown, leading into the NTT IndyCar Series Bommarito Automotive Group 500 that evening. Ty Majeski snuck past Paul Shafer, Jr on the final circuit when the Tour last visited the one and a quarter mile oval located just outside of St. Louis.

A second stop at Madison International Speedway is set for Friday night August 28 for the Howie Lettow Classic. The following weekend, the Tour makes its annual Labor Day Weekend voyage to Dells Raceway Park on Saturday night September 5 for the Escape to Wisconsin 100, kicking off the Holiday weekend in ‘The Waterpark Capital of the World’.

The 2020 ARCA Midwest Tour Champion will be crowned on Sunday afternoon October 11 during the 51st annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. In a wild finish which saw multiple pit strategies play out, Ty Majeski had just enough steam left to best Dan Fredrickson who had a fresh tire to utilize late in the 200 lap Championship event. The ARCAMT will highlight the Sunday portion of the four day racing festival which features over 500 racecars and thousands of campers in addition to the ‘Legendary After Race Parties’.

New for 2020, will be the Midwest Tour’s involvement in the All-American Weekend October 31 and November 1 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. The non-points race will feature drivers from a multitude of sanctioning bodies throughout the country with guaranteed starting positions for top ARCAMT Touring Stars.
