MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Connor Hall has joined Chad Bryant Racing to compete in the ARCA Racing Series opener Saturday at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
Hall will make his series’ debut aboard the No. 22 Ford Fusion with support from Marlow Yachts and Healing Hands. Crew chief Paul Andrews will call the shots for Hall in the 80-lap season opener.
“I am ecstatic that I get to work with Chad Bryant Racing some this year,” Hall said. “I am beyond thankful for my sponsors and I’m extremely happy to represent them for this event, as well as the rest of the 2019 season.
“I look forward to what the 2019 season will bring for myself as a driver and also for my partners. I hope this is going to be our biggest and best year yet.”
Hall, 21, participated in the ARCA open-test at Daytona in January with another team, where he earned crucial drafting experience to prepare him for his superspeedway debut.
Team owner Chad Bryant said he kept an eye on Hall during the two-day session and was impressed with his ability to get up to speed quickly.
“We had a lot going on during the test at Daytona, but you always keep an eye on the competition,” said Bryant. “Connor was very smooth and attentive during the test and when he approached us about the running the race, it made sense.
“He knows in order to have an opportunity to win, he has to be around for the finish. He’ll make a great teammate to our other car driven by Joe Graf Jr. and we look forward to a strong start to the 2019 ARCA season.”
In addition to the ARCA opener, Hall will participate in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season-opener at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway on Feb. 10 aboard the No. 31 Chevrolet for Marsh Racing.
