Topics: Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200, Steve Arpin, Mikey Kile
CONCORD, NC (04-07-10) Venturini Motorsports has a legendary history in the ARCA Racing Series, competing for over 25 years. The team began with Tony Venturini and has grown through Bill Sr., Billy, and their development drivers. Venturini Motorsports has always made a strong precedence with each appearance in the series.
Venturini Motorsports will be returning to the historic Salem Speedway where both Billy Venturini and Mikey Kile have visited victory lane.
Billy Venturini won his first ARCA race in 2006 at Salem Speedway and Mike Kile won his first USAR Pro Cup race in 2008 as a rookie at Salem Speedway.
The high-mile, high-banked oval is known for being tough on drivers and equipment and this is the track that separates and showcases drivers.
Venturini Motorsports plans to separate its development drivers from the rest of the field and take them to the front. The team has already shown success at a super speedway and road course this season and it is now time to show dominance at the short track.
The team will travel from Concord, NC for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 presented by Appliancezone.com on Sunday, April 11th. Venturini Motorsports will field 3 cars for drivers Alli Owens, Steve Arpin, and Mikey Kile.
Alli Owens, will be driving the no. 15 ElectrifingCareers.com Chevy at the dynamic and historic Salem Speedway in the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200.
Steve Arpin, driver of the no. 55 Venturini Motorsports Toyota, enters the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 presented by Appliancezone.com tied for second in points and hopes to leave Salem, IN on top.
Arpin’s previous start at Salem Speedway was in 2009 with Venturini Motorsports where he qualified 8th and finished fifth. Not only does Arpin plan on gaining another top-five finish at Salem, but he also has the checkered flag in sight.
Arpin’s goals are not any different from that of teammate Mikey Kile who will pilot the no. 25 Venturini Motorsports Toyota. Kile has seen the checkered flag at Salem in 2006 which put him in victory lane and Kile enters Salem Speedway top-10 in points hoping to make his Salem starts two for two.
Billy Venturini, competition director, has one main goal in mind for the team and that is to visit victory lane once again where he found his first ARCA win.
The Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 at Salem Speedway will begin at 2:15 PM on Sunday April 11th. The race will be featured in live streaming audio at ARCARacing.com. Be sure to catch live updates on Venturini Motorsports through out the whole weekend on twitter at twitter.com/venturinimotor
