VMS’ Return to Kern County Raceway Park: Venturini Motorsports will be returning to Kern County Raceway Park for the second time in the team’s history. Having previously taken on the track in 2020 and leaving with a second place finish, the team is eager to return as a part of their 2023 ARCA West Series campaign. 

Hingorani’s Irwindale Victory: It only took two ARCA West Series races for Hingorani to secure his first victory of the 2023 season. This victory also made him the first driver of Indian descent to win in either ARCA or NASCAR. Hingorani hopes to carry the momentum into the third race of the West Series season at Kern County Raceway Park. 

VMS to Pursue Three Different Titles: The VMS 2023 season will be the first in ARCA history that a team is in contention for all three of the Championship titles. VMS will be challenging for the East and West Series Championships with Sean Hingorani on top of their traditional ARCA Menards Series season run.

Double Header for VMS: With a packed race calendar for the 2023 season, taking on all three series, this weekend marks the first double header for the team. This Saturday Venturini Motorsports will have a lineup of four cars racing at Talladega Superspeedway while over 2,000 miles away, Hingorani and VMS will be racing at Kern. 

Meet Sean Hingorani: Fans will have the opportunity to meet the drivers and receive autographs prior to the race. The ARCA Menards Series West driver autograph session will be conducted from 6 to 6:30pm PT under the grandstands. 

Crew Chief: Sean Hingorani will be working alongside Crew Chief Monon Rahman.

Spotter: To further support the race crew, Billy Venturini, owner of Venturini Motorsports, will serve as Hingorani’s spotter for the weekend. Venturini also worked with Hingorani at Irwindale where they were able to take home the win. 

Mobil 1: Hingorani will be carrying the support of Mobil 1, whose history in motorsports extends back to the 1970’s, this weekend at Irwindale Speedway.
