Concord, NC (July 6, 2016) – Dalton Sargeant will look for his first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards victory this weekend in the ARCA 150 presented by Casey’s General Store at Iowa Speedway on Saturday, July 9.
Sargeant, locked in a tight battle for ARCA Rookie of the Year honors with fellow competitor Chase Briscoe, has earned seven consecutive top-10 finishes in as many races.
Driving Venturini Motorsports’ No.55 Toyota Racing Development – Windows 10 Camry during 15 of the 20 series events, Sargeant has already scored two runner-up and five top-5 finishes thus far during his abbreviated rookie campaign.
“We’ve been strong every time out this season,” said Sargeant. “I expect more of the same this weekend at Iowa. My 55-team continues to prepare great race cars and put me in the right position just about every week.”
In his three previous short track events this season (Salem, Toledo and Winchester) Sargeant has yet to finish outside the top-3.
“Iowa is an exciting short track – it’s a great facility and the racing surface offers up several grooves to run – it’s really suited for my style of driving. I’m going there this week with a lot of confidence. Hopefully we can close one out Saturday night!”
This past weekend Sargeant took advantage of ARCA’s off-weekend and traveled to Maine where he competed and finished third in the Pro All Stars Series Oxford 100. His top-3 finish secured his starting spot in the field for the prestigious Oxford 250 later this summer.
