VMS’ First Outing at Irwindale Speedway: Having served as a driver development program since 2007, Venturini Motorsports has visited a vast number of tracks following the ARCA Menards Series calendar. Taking on the west venture this season provides the opportunity to visit a number of tracks that will be new to the team, Irwindale Speedway being the first of the season.
VMS to Pursue Three Different Titles: The VMS 2023 season will mark the first in ARCA history that a team is in contention for all three of the Championship titles.

Quick Turnaround For VMS and Hingorani: Venturini Motorsports makes its debut at Irwindale Speedway on the heels of their outing at the ARCA Series East season opener at Five Flags Speedway. Hingorani, at his first ever ARCA Series East race, was able to qualify in 6th and fight up to a 4th place finish. The team will be making the over 2000 mile journey West for the ARCA Menards Series West race at Irwindale Speedway in California.
The West Championship is Well Underway: VMS and Hingorani will be going into their second West race of the season at Irwindale Speedway. Hingorani made his VMS debut at the combined ARCA Menards Series and ARCA Menards Series West race.
New Paint for Hingorani: Hingorani will be carrying the support of Mobil 1 this weekend at Irwindale Speedway.

Regarding the Irwindale Race: I’m super excited to get back to Irwindale Speedway this weekend. The last time I was here I got pole with Hailie Deegan and had a lot of speed. Going into this weekend we have an open test on Friday and I think that should give us a lot of opportunities to get our Mobil 1 Toyota Camry in good shape for Saturday night.

Regarding the Irwindale Race: It’s great to be back home in California. I’m really looking forward to this weekend and racing out west again. Coming off of the East Series opener I feel really confident going into this race. The team managed a strong result last weekend so we are looking forward to building on that.
