CONCORD, NC – JULY 30, 2019: Toyota Racing Developments (TRD) Logan Seavey, last year’s USAC National Midget Series Champion is ready to make his return to the seat of Venturini Motorsports’ (VMS) No.20 Turn One Steering/Craftsman Toyota in the ARCA Menards Series for back-to-back appearances on two of Illinois’ legendary dirt tracks – Springfield (August 18) and DuQuoin (August 31).
A native of Sutter, California, Seavey made two ARCA Racing Series starts in 2018 with VMS. During his ARCA debut at the Illinois Fairgrounds in Springfield, Seavey started fourth and finished third. In his second series race the 21-year old driver tapped into his new found stock car experience and drove to victory lane just weeks later at the DuQuoin State Fairground’s Magic Mile.
“I’m super excited and thankful to get another chance to run the dirt races in the ARCA series with Venturini Motorsports,” said the 21-year old driver. “With the success of last year’s races and all of the knowledge I’ve gained since then I know we will have a really good shot at both races this year. I have more experience with pit road, restarts, and just driving stock cars in general so I feel like I have a better grasp to put together all the variables it takes to win a stock car race.”
Seavey re-joins a VMS team with ten victories out of 15 starts on the year. His teammates include ARCA Championship contenders Michael Self and Christian Eckes who have combined for five of VMS’ 2019 wins.
Picking up where he left off at the end of last season, Seavey has been continued his torrid pace crisscrossing the country winning 11 times already this summer. Ten of his 2019 wins have been behind the wheel of a Keith Kunz Motorsports (KKM) prepared Toyota Midget. He’s also was crowned champion of this year’s Indiana’s Midget week and POWRi Speedweek.
Seavey’s next chance comes in next week’s Allen Crowe Memorial 100 at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield on Saturday, August 18. Practice on the one-mile dirt oval will begin at 10 am ET/9 am CT, General Tire Pole Qualifying is set for 12 n ET/11 am CT, and the 100-mile feature event will go green at 2:30 pm ET/1:30 pm CT. The race will be televised live flag-to-flag on MAVTV.
