Jesse Love’s Ready to Go 2-for-2: After winning the previous race at Kansas Speedway this year, Jesse Love is ready to make another trip to victory lane and secure both wins at Kansas this year. His momentum coming off of the previous win at Kansas in May is sure to help the current ARCA Menards Series championship leader secure his 10th win of the season and extend his championship lead even more. He’ll also use the knowledge gained from the ARCA Menards Series Race and apply it to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race he’ll be running in on Saturday.

Toni Breidinger Eager for Another Top 5 Finish: The last time that Toni Breidinger was paired with crew chief Kevin Reed Jr., she secured her second top-5 finish at Iowa Speedway. Now, Toni is back with Reed Jr. this weekend at Kansas Speedway and is looking for her third top-5 finish in just her 11th start this season. Breidinger will also be racing with Raising Cane’s as her primary sponsor this weekend. Be sure to come out and see her make a pit stop at the Liberty, MO, Raising Cane’s Drive Thru on Thursday from 4-5PM CT.

Dean Thompson Back for Redemption: In Dean Thompson’s previous ARCA start at Kansas Speedway in May 2023, he finished runner up to his VMS teammate, Jesse Love. With the momentum from his second place finish at Kansas and his pole award from his last start with VMS at Pocono, Thompson is sure to be a powerful force and make an impressive run to try and secure his first ARCA Menards Series victory. Thompson will also plan to apply the knowledge gained from the ARCA Menards Series Race and apply it to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race he’ll be running in on Saturday.

Jake Finch Takes on the Mile and a Half Track: With Kansas Being Jake Finch’s first mile and a half track of the season, he’s ready to learn and soak up everything he can. Finch has one ARCA East win this season with Venturini Motorsports that came at Dover earlier this year.

Jake Finch – No. 15  Phoenix Toyota Camry

Regarding the Kansas Race: I’m super excited to get to Kansas Speedway. I’ve never been to this track, but I’m excited to go there and see the track and have a good run this weekend. I’m really excited to run with Cayden Lapcevich twice now and work with him again. I’ve been doing a solid job with the simulator at home and watching old races and film to prepare. It’s also been nice to be able to lean on some old racing connections and ask them questions about this track. I’m just trying to get better, always working on my confidence.

Jesse Love – No. 20 JBL Toyota Camry

Regarding the Kansas Race: It’s definitely added confidence going back to a place we have already won at this year. I like Kansas, it’s one of my favorite mile and a half tracks. We should have another good shot at the win this weekend!

Dean Thompson – No. 25 MCM Transportation Toyota Camry

Regarding the Kansas Race: I’d say Kansas is one of my top 3 tracks I’m best at right now. The intermediate size racetracks really fit into my driving style and they’re something I always look forward to. We were so close to catching the win with Venturini back in May and I’m excited to get that second opportunity with them. This race wasn’t originally on my schedule to begin the year but my great friends at MCM Transportation decided to step up and give me the opportunity for redemption which motivates meeven more to go out there and make everyone proud. Thank you to Michael Murillo and everyone at MCM for giving me this opportunity this weekend along with Thompson Pipe Group, Venturini Motorsports, and TRD.

Toni Breidinger – No. 55 Raising Cane’s Toyota Camry

Regarding the Kansas Race: I’m so excited to have Raising Cane’s on the car and to be back at Kansas for the second time this season. I’m ready to build off of the first race in Kansas and take what I learned and apply it to this one. I’m eager to be reunited with my crew chief, Kevin Reed Jr., after our top 5 together at Iowa. Let’s see if we can do it again!
