Season Finale: This weekend, the ARCA Menards Series will close out their 20-race season with a returning trip to Kansas Speedway for Saturday night’s Reese’s 150.
The 23rd ARCA Menards Series race held at the 1.5-mile speedway will also conclude Young’s Motorsports’ first season of competition in the NASCAR-owned development series.
Throughout the year, Young’s Motorsports fielded ARCA Menards Series and ARCA Menards Series East entries for Toni Breidinger and Connor Mosack.
Kansas will mark the organization’s ninth race of the year, highlighted by back-to-back 12th place finishes at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway and Kansas Speedway respectively.
Welcome Back: For the fourth time this season, Young’s Motorsports welcomes Connor Mosack aboard their No. 02 Chevrolet SS.
Mosack returns to the team after competing in his most recent ARCA Menards Series race at the famed Milwaukee (Wisc.) Mile in last August.
Mosack earned much-needed seat time in the ARCA Menards Series and delivered a respectable 16th place finish in the Sprecher 150.
The highlight of Mosack’s young ARCA tenure occurred in May when he made his ARCA debut with the team at Dover’s Monster Mile. Starting 14th, he utilized the 125-lap race to move forward in his stock car debut to take seventh at the checkered flag.
The effort was not only a top-10 for Mosack but also a top-10 for the Tyler Young-led team in their ARCA East Series debut.
Meet Connor: Connor Mosack, 22, will drive the No. 02 Nic Taylor Custom Fit Underwear Chevrolet SS in Saturday night’s Reese’s 150.
A veteran of Motorsports, Mosack is a recent graduate of High Point University where he was on a presidential scholarship and earned a degree in business entrepreneurship.
Behind the scenes, Mosack is also a leader in his community. He organized a fundraiser for ContainIt, a student-led initiative that takes used shipping containers and turns them into transitional housing units. In its first year with Covenant Day School, it raised over $50,000.
He is also involved with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation supporting kids with pediatric cancer.
Mosack’s Racing Career At A Glance: Mosack’s racing career began in 2017 in the INEX U.S. Legend Car ranks.

Speedway.
Racing in the Semi-Pro and Open Divisions, Mosack competed at Concord (N.C.) Speedway, the Summer Shootout Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway among other events. In 42 starts, Mosack earned 20 victories, 34 top-five and 37 top-10 finishes. Among those was a sweep of the National events at Las Vegas, including the Road Course World Finals and Asphalt Nationals.
In 2019, Mosack joined JR Motorsports to compete in the CARS Late Model Stock Tour Series and competed for the championship in 2020. In 10 starts, he earned three top-five, eight top-10s and finished sixth in the championship standings. With an average finish of 8.5, Mosack also earned Rookie of the Year Honors.

Connor Mosack Pre-Race Quotes:
On Kansas Speedway: “I’m excited to get back in the ARCA car on a mile and a half. We’re bringing the car we had at Michigan, so I think our No. 02 Nic Tailor Custom Fit Underwear Chevrolet will be really good.”
On Preparing For Kansas Speedway: “I’ve run many laps on the simulator to best prepare myself, and gone through and watched some of the past races there.
“I’ve also been able to talk to some people who have run well there and can use their advice to be better as well.”
On Benefit of Practice and Qualifying: “Being able to practice and qualify will be a big help for us. At Michigan, we were able to get a couple of laps in practice, but no qualifying so starting at the back made it tougher than it needed to be.
“Hopefully, we can use the practice to get up to speed on the track and make some minor adjustments if needed and then qualify near the front to be able to run with those guys in the race.”
On Goals For Kansas Speedway: My goal is definitely a top-five finish with our No. 02 Nic Tailor Custom Fit Underwear Chevrolet. I feel we could have easily accomplished this at Michigan had we not had the mechanical problems.”
