CONCORD, N.C. – Colby Howard will make his return to the ARCA Menards Series at Salem Speedway on Saturday.

In just three career ARCA starts, Howard has earned three top-10 finishes, with an average finish of 9.0 heading into the weekend.

The high banked Indiana short track was the site of Howard’s ARCA Menards Series debut in 2018, where he started and finished in eighth.

This time around, the 18-year-old plans on bettering his results with Win-Tron Racing in the No. 32 Project Hope/Yurpal, Inc. Chevrolet.

“I am really looking forward to returning to Salem,” said Howard. “We had a good run in the test on Tuesday, and should have had a Top 5 finish in last year’s race until I made a mistake on pit road. This time around, it should be better, because our car is really solid on old tires, which is critical on Salem’s worn out surface.”

Earlier this season, Howard debuted for team owner Kevin Cywinski and crew chief Jamie Jones at Iowa Speedway. The No. 32 team finished 10th at Iowa, and plans  on bringing the same racecar to Salem.
