MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Officials from Chad Bryant Racing announced Friday that sports car competitor Kris Wright will drive for the team in ARCA Menards Series competition Saturday at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.
Wright will make his second ARCA Menards Series start of the season after competing in the VizCom 200 at Michigan Int’l Speedway earlier this month for GMS Racing.
The 25-year-old will pilot the team’s No. 22 entry in the 150-lap event under the leadership of veteran crew chief Paul Andrews.
Wright is transitioning to stock cars following a successful stint in sports cars, including a second-place finish in the LMP2 class in the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The Wexford, Pa., native also claimed the IMSA Prototype Challenge championship (LMP3) in 2019 after claiming IMSA Prototype Challenge Rookie of the Year honors in 2017.
In addition to two ARCA Menards Series West starts at Utah Motorsports Campus where he finished second and third in June, he also made his NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut two weeks ago at the Daytona Int’l Speedway road course.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to drive for Chad Bryant Racing this weekend at Gateway,” said Wright. “Chad (Bryant) and Paul (Andrews) are giving me an opportunity to continue to build a stock car resume with their organization.
“The team has shown over the years that not only do they have fast race cars, but they are a winning and championship-caliber team. I hope we can have a successful debut at Gateway on Saturday night.”
