HICKORY, N.C. – Officials from ZLOOP and Venturini Motorsports jointly announced today that Justin Boston will compete full-time in the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) next season.
Boston, 23, from Mooresville, North Carolina, joins the veteran ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards organization hailing from Late Models, which included stints this season in the Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway Fall Brawl and the prestigious Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, both of which he finished inside the top- 10.
The former Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series competitor will begin a rigorous testing schedule this month that will continue into December at Daytona Int’l Speedway for the highly anticipated open-test session at the 2.5-mile oval in preparation for next year’s season-opener, which is set for Feb. 16.
Hickory, North Carolina-based ZLOOP will sponsor Boston’s entire inaugural season of stock-car competition.

“This is a very humbling opportunity to compete in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards,” said Justin Boston. “I’m eager to get behind the wheel and accelerate my learning curve with one of the best teams in the business. I am extremely grateful to ZLOOP for the chance to represent them on and off the track.”
Venturini Motorsports General Manager Billy Venturini commented on the announcement by saying, “I’m very excited about Justin being a part of Venturini Motorsports. He’s a young driver who’s put together some impressive credentials despite not racing a bunch over the past two years. I see him being an incredible force to be reckoned with, once we get our preseason testing under our belts.”
He added, “I believe he’s going to be the front-runner for the Rookie-of-the-Year and will be a true contender for the championship in 2013. Our organization is also thrilled to welcome ZLOOP not only as a new sponsor to the series, but our team as well. It’s very humbling for us to be associated with a company that plans to make such a difference in the world of eWaste.”
“ZLOOP is excited to carry our brand into a new form of Motorsports through the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards with Justin Boston and Venturini Motorsports,” offered Chris Knight, Director of Sports Marketing for ZLOOP. “We are growing our Motorsports platform quickly as we aim to educate the public about the seriousness of eWaste.
