Drew Dollar will return to Venturini Motorsports on a part-time basis in 2021, piloting the team’s No. 15 Toyota Camry in a 13-race schedule that features events across the three divisions of the ARCA Menards Series.
Billy Venturini – general manager of Venturini Motorsports — will serve as the crew chief for Dollar’s ARCA efforts in 2021.
The 20-year-old ran full-time for Venturini Motorsports in 2020, scoring his first career victory at Talladega Superspeedway, alongside four top-fives and 14 top-10s in 20 starts.
“Returning to the ARCA Series with Venturini Motorsports is such a huge opportunity for me at this stage in my career,” says Dollar. “Last season was my second-year running stock cars and the experience I gained was exactly what I needed to progress – I’m excited for another opportunity to continue and contribute to the overall success of such a great team.”
Dollar’s 11-race schedule in the ARCA Menards Series will begin at Daytona International Speedway on February 13th, and continue with events at Phoenix, Talladega, Kansas, Charlotte, Mid-Ohio, Pocono, Watkins Glen, Michigan, Bristol, and the season-finale at Kansas in October.
The Atlanta, Georgia-native will also contest two regional series events with Venturini Motorsports, piloting an entry for the organization in the ARCA Menards Series East event at Dover on May 14th and the ARCA Menards Series West season-finale at Phoenix Raceway.
“We had some success last year and I learned so much from my crew chief Shannon Rursch. This year I’m really looking forward to working with Billy Venturini; pairing with him on the pit box gives me the added confidence going into this season. Billy and I developed a great relationship away from the track and his passion and knowledge of the sport will help me become a better race car driver.”
Dollar will be one of three drivers entering the Daytona Test for Venturini Motorsports, joining Gracie Trotter and Corey Heim. On Monday, Heim was announced as the full-time driver of the organization’s No. 20 Toyota Camry.
