Noah Gragson, a member of the NASCAR Next program and driver in both K&N Pro Series, will start in the final ARCA Racing Series event of the year at Kansas Speedway.
Gragson has joined Venturini Motorsports to drive the No.15 SpeedVegas – Alert ID Toyota Camry in the Kansas 150 on Friday. It will be his third career ARCA start. Earlier this year he started sixth and finished 30th at Pocono Raceway.
The announcement by Venturini Motorsports comes less than a week after Gragson was announced by Kyle Busch Motorsports as the driver who will succeed William Byron in its No. 9 entry in the Camping World Truck Series next year.
“The last couple weeks have truly been amazing,” Gragson said in a press release. “Running with Venturini Motorsports at Kansas is an exciting opportunity and just another step towards my integration into the Toyota family. The Venturini Motorsports group has a strong reputation in the series and a proven track record. I’m looking forward to working with Billy (Venturini) and the guys on the team
Gragson, a native of Las Vegas, has six wins between the K&N East and West Series, including two each this year.
