Rookie Armstrong Answers Next for VM at Daytona


(DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - December 15, 2012) - Talk about the ultimate PR jackpot pull. Venturini Motorsports, which has been fastest in every test session so far at Daytona Int'l Speedway, has also managed to spread the love among its four drivers testing over three days this weekend at the "World Center of Racing".

First it was veteran John Wes Townley, who led with the fastest lap in round one Friday morning; then it was rookie Justin Boston who circled his way to the top of the charts Friday afternoon. On Saturday, the world got the first big look at rookie Taylor Ferns, the young lady from Washington, Michigan, who showed the boys the fastest way around the historic 2.5-mile superspeedway.

Now, with the Saturday afternoon session history, the fourth driver in the Venturini Motorsport mix, rookie Caleb Armstrong, with his three teammates in full view in the rear view mirror, turned the fastest lap so far at 184.192 mph.

"As a driver there is no doubt Daytona is the place to be," Armstrong said.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity and excited to see my progress as I've had to make a transition from open wheel to stock cars. The team has been totally supportive and given me really good equipment."

The "good equipment" thing is a common thread for Venturini Motorsports drivers, who, pretty much, all say the same thing in regards to the quality of the cars they drive.

And while the team has won ARCA championships and races at some of the biggest, most prestigious tracks on the ARCA tour, a victory at Daytona has eluded the team over the course of its motorsports tenure.
