Concord, North Carolina (August 23, 2017) – Current NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) rookie driver and personality Noah Gragson returns to the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards for his fourth season starts when the series returns to Road America on Sunday, August 27.
Gragson will rejoin Venturini Motorsports taking over the seat of the team’s No.15 Switch Toyota Camry during Sunday’s 100-mile event at Road America’s 14-turn road circuit.
“I’m excited for another shot in my Switch Toyota this weekend at Road America,” said Gragson. “Changing it up with a road course event is a lot of fun and really levels the playing field for the most part. I’m confident and enjoy this style of racing – I’ve had some decent road course success over the last couple years and feel like we’ve got as good as a shot as anyone this weekend.”
No stranger to road course racing, Gragson won back-to-back NASCAR K&N Pro Series West road course events at Utah Motorsports Campus during the 15′ & 16′ seasons. He’s twice finished seventh at Sonoma.
Since 2015, Gragson has made six career ARCA Series starts earning a series best 5th place finish at Kansas Speedway in 2016. Gragson finished ninth in his most recent ARCA Series start last month at Pocono Raceway.
Gragson, driving the No.18 Switch Toyota Tundra full-time for Kyle Busch Motorsports, currently holds down the 10th spot in the NCWTS driver standings and is bidding for a championship playoff spot.
