QUOTES:

 

Jesse Love – No. 15 JBL Toyota Camry

 

“I’m so pumped to get back with Venturini Motorsports this weekend, especially at a place like Pensacola (Five Flags Speedway). Last race at Winchester (Speedway) I felt that I should have done better, but I lacked in some areas, that I was able to improve on. This race is very important to me, and we have a really good chance at it this weekend and I’m ready to get to victory lane.”  

 

 

Corey Heim – No. 20 Craftsman, Champion Power Equipment Toyota Camry

 

“Ready to get back to Five Flags Speedway, the track where I was able to make my ARCA debut in 2019. I have raced there a lot over the years with a late model and watched countless races there, so I’m hoping the track experience will help my success this Saturday night with my Venturini Motorsports team.” 

 

Mason Diaz – No. 25 Solid Rock Carriers, Craftsman Toyota Camry

 

“It’s going to be a great weekend at Five Flags (Speedway) and I’m excited to get back after it with my No. 25 Venturini Motorsports crew. Looking to carry our momentum into the final ARCA East race, where we have the possibility of finishing in the top-three in points. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
