CONCORD, N.C. – Venturini Motorsports has announced that Harrison Burton will run a partial schedule in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards with the team this year.
Eighteen-year-old Burton, a two-time ARCA winner, will pilot the No. 20 Toyota Camry for five events, starting with the series’ season opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
Burton will also race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway on May 23, Pocono (Pa.) Raceway on May 31, Illinois’ Chicagoland Speedway on June 27 and the series finale at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 18.
During the upcoming season, Burton will feature continued support from longtime partners DEX Imaging, FIELDS, Morton Buildings and Rheem Heating, Cooling and Water Heating.
Burton, the son of former Monster Energy Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, has made 11-career ARCA starts since 2017. With ARCA victories at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway and Pocono Raceway, the talented teenager has impressed throughout his brief series career.
A former NASCAR Next class member, the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion also has numerous super late model victories, including marquee events like the Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway and ARCA/CRA Speedfest at Crisp Motorsports Park.
“I’m super excited to join Venturini Motorsports and continue running in the ARCA Racing Series,” said Burton. “I love ARCA racing and the community around it. The series is a great option in the grand scheme of things when it comes to my career development – it’s a great stepping stone as I continue to the next level.”
A member of the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) family, Burton’s upcoming ARCA effort will coincide with his full-season NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series effort in the No. 18 Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
“I’m truly looking forward to working with Harrison this upcoming season,” said team owner Billy Venturini. “Harrison has a deep racing pedigree and is a terrific kid – it’s an honor to have the opportunity to work with such a storied name in our sport as a Burton. It’s also great to have another young Toyota Racing Development driver come through our program.”
