May 13, 2016 (Concord, NC) – Venturini Motorsports (VMS) announced today the addition of three ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards events with Matt Tifft to coincide with his already busy NASCAR XFINITY (NXS) and Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedules.
Already in the midst of partial race schedules with Joe Gibbs Racing (NXS) and Red Horse Racing (NCWTS), Tifft will rejoin VMS and pilot the No. 15 Toyota Camry in ARCA starting at Michigan Int’l Speedway on June 10. The busy 19-year old will also compete at Winchester Speedway and the ARCA finale at Kansas in October.
A native of Hinckley, Ohio, Tifft currently attends UNC-Charlotte as a business major while juggling his busy racing career.
“Matt is terrific kid with lots of talent behind the wheel,” said Competition Director Billy Venturini. “He’s young and continues to impress with every opportunity given. I’m happy to have him back with the team and expect we’ll have some good success together.”
Tifft, with 21 career ARCA starts since 2013, has earned nine top-5 and 13 top-10 finishes. Tifft and VMS have teamed up four times in the past with their best finish together coming via the NCWTS at Martinsville (2015) finishing eighth.
