FREDRICKSBURG, VA. (January 9, 2023) – 16 year-old Conner Jones continues his rapid ascent in the stock car ranks in 2023, announcing an expanded schedule of 12 ARCA Menards Series races with Venturini Motorsports. Jones will pair with multi-time race-winning crew chief Kevin Reed, Jr. for the expanded slate.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to return to Venturini Motorsports this season for additional races,” Jones said. “Being teamed up with one of the top teams in the ARCA Menards series will allow me to gain more experience and develop my craft behind the wheel.”
Jones’ summer of racing in 2022 was largely in the ARCA Menards Series for the 30-year stalwart organization of the series, Venturini Motorsports. His campaign in the No. 15 Toyota began in April at Dover Motor Speedway with a third-place finish in ARCA East competition. He followed with an outstanding fifth-place ARCA National finish at Iowa Speedway. He added a top-ten in his road course debut at Watkins Glen International as well.
The expanded 2023 ARCA campaign for Jones will open at Phoenix Raceway in March, site of a fifth-place qualifying effort in November and will end where it started in November during the championship race for the ARCA Menards Series West at Phoenix.
