  • 2019 ARCA News & Rumblings

    Figured I would start a 2019 thread since 2018 is over. A lot of this was already posted in the 2018 thread.

    MDM Motorsports would like to run at least 2 full time cars in 2019, but currently has no drivers.

    Riley Herbst and Ty Gibbs will split the 19; Gibbs will run all races he is eligible which will be the short tracks.

    Christian Eckes is planning a full time campaign with Venturini

    Chandler Smith will run all races he is eligible for Venturini, including the second Pocono race.

    Thomas Praytor and Max Force Racing have moved shops and plan on returning in some capacity.

    Andy Seuss will be back for at least the plate races in Chris Our's 02

    Sam Mayer will run select races for GMS as they make their return to the series

    Natalie Decker will run part time for DGR Crosley, splitting her time between ARCA, Trucks, and K&N

    Carson Hocevar will run all short tracks in Mike Bursely's 35

    Steven Lane's On Point Motorsports hopes to run a partial schedule with drivers to be determined

    Fast Track Racing will be back with Ed Pompa, Rick Clifton, and others

    Travis Braden will return with RFMS Racing

      Did they buy Win tron out? What is Win Tron's plans for next year?

      Wayne Peterson has got a young kid that's going to run all of the short tracks next year. Don't want to name a name just yet but, his dad has already put up some money and equipment, so this is good news for Wayne and the boys.
      Follow Wayne Peterson Racing on Twitter @Arcafan06.

        Win-Tron ran Chevy for the entirety of last year, so Id assume that this is just back catalog being jettisoned.

        Good news about Wayne, thats really awesome.

        Unrelated, Is Braden being back with RFMS assured, or are thing subject to change over there?

          Yeah that's probably an older Self car. Kevin's been quietly getting rid of older stuff, because he really doesn't have that much room to spare. F***ing truck program about had that place where you couldn't walk in it. .

          On Point is building a new car to run Daytona, as well.

            Id be shocked if anything changes there, because that would mean either Don decided to finally pry open his wallet or that he and AJ made up, neither of which seemed likely the last I had talked to anyone involved over there.

                  I see leftover orange on a Toyota, must be Vizion's old WinTron car.

                  I really, really hope they got a healthy crash clause out of him because this probably won't end too well.

                          And now it's official. Must have found some money since last summer, when he was lowballing every team midpack on back. If you have a running bet on who will start the big one at Daytona...though he'd have to be fast enough to keep up in the first place
