CONCORD, N.C. – Toyota Racing Development driver Logan Seavey, the defending USAC National Midget Series champion, will return to Venturini Motorsports for a pair of ARCA Menards Series dirt races this fall.
Seavey will steer the No. 20 Turn One Steering/Craftsman Toyota in back-to-back ARCA appearances on two of Illinois’ legendary dirt miles – the Illinois State Fairgrounds on Aug. 18 and the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds on Aug. 31.
A native of Sutter, Calif., Seavey made two ARCA Racing Series starts last year with VMS. During his ARCA debut at the Illinois Fairgrounds in Springfield, Seavey started fourth and finished third.
In his second series race, the 21-year old driver tapped into his newfound stock car experience and drove to victory lane just weeks later at DuQuoin’s Magic Mile.
“I’m super excited and thankful to get another chance to run the dirt races in the ARCA series with Venturini Motorsports,” said Seavey. “With the success of last year’s races and all of the knowledge I’ve gained since then I know we will have a really good shot at both races this year.
“I have more experience with pit road, restarts, and just driving stock cars in general, so I feel like I have a better grasp to put together all the variables it takes to win a stock car race.”
Seavey rejoins a VMS team with 10 victories out of 15 starts on the year. His teammates include ARCA championship contenders Michael Self and Christian Eckes, who have combined for five of VMS’ wins this season.
Picking up where he left off at the end of last year, Seavey has been continued his torrid pace by crisscrossing the country and winning 11 times already this summer.
Ten of his wins have been behind the wheel of a Keith Kunz Motorsports-prepared Toyota midget. He was also crowned champion of Indiana Midget Week and POWRi Speed Week.
