Venturini Motorsports Eyeing First Bristol Victory:
Since the ARCA Menards Series starting racing at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2012, VMS is looking for their first team victory at the high banked track. With four incredibly talented drivers representing VMS this weekend, the team looks to add Bristol to it’s list of winning tracks.

Regarding the Bristol Race: I’m really excited to take on a fast, high-banked track like Bristol. This extra seat time in the same race car really helps me to feel prepared for All-American Speedway and chase the ARCA Menards Series West Championship. Everyone at Venturini Motorsports works so hard and gives me a chance to compete for wins every week.
Jesse Love – No. 20 JBL Toyota Camry
Regarding the Bristol Race: I enjoy Bristol. It fits my driving style and it’s always cool to go to places that are high grip and concrete. It hasn’t been our best track in previous years but I have a good feeling about it this time around.
Conner Jones – No. 25 Jones Utilities
Regarding the Bristol Race: Bristol is one of my favorite tracks. You practically run a qualifying lap the whole race. It’s a pretty technical track, but later in the race you can move up a bit in the corners. Overall, it’s a pretty tough track all around but I’m excited for the challenge!
