Toni Breidinger will officially move from Young’s Motorsports in the ARCA Menards Series to Venturini Motorsports for the remainder of the 2021 season.
Venturini Motorsports announced on Wednesday, that Breidinger will pilot their No. 25 entry for five races (four in the ARCA Menards Series and one in the ARCA Menards Series West) beginning with this weekend’s Calypso Lemonade 200 at Winchester Speedway with sponsorship coming from Triller, a globally popular AI-powered social media experience.
“I am thankful for this partnership with Triller and for them to believe in female athletes and especially in motorsports. I am so excited to be back racing a Toyota Camry with Venturini Motorsports,” said Breidinger in a team release. “As a young female athlete who has diverse interests and wants to have young people get excited about the sport I love, Triller is the perfect match with me on the track. The mix of engaged socially conscious young people from around the world is the audience I want to connect with, and I think as we grow together all will learn, have fun and experience new events together.”
In addition to Winchester this weekend, Breidinger will also run the dirt races at Springfield (August 22) and DuQuoin (September 5) and the paved races at Kansas Speedway (October 23) and the ARCA Menards Series West event at Phoenix Raceway (November 6).
For Triller, Breidinger is the perfect driver for their brand as she has a massive following on social media.
“Toni (Breidinger) is the perfect fit for an entry into NASCAR and all forms of racing for Triller,” said Bobby Sarnevesht, Chairman and Co-Owner of Triller. “She is a disruptive, smart, highly competitive, socially conscious and engaged athlete who our millions of followers are just starting to learn about. We look forward to helping to elevate her story and her platform and connect her with the stars who are already deeply involved in Triller, as well as giving our followers a first look into NASCAR and helping to grow the sport with a younger and very engaged and loyal audience.”
In addition to racing with the Triller brand, Breidinger will contribute to the social media brand’s offerings as she creates, “the ultimate multimedia fan engagement experience.”
This is a reunion for Breidinger and Venturini Motorsports, who were paired together in 2018. Breidinger actually scored her career-best finish of 10th in her debut race for the team in the ARCA Menards Series event at Madison International Speedway that year.
Breidinger, USAC’s all-time winningest female driver with 19 wins, has made five ARCA Menards Series starts in 2021, all for Young’s Motorsports in the No. 02 entry. Her best finish, so far, has been 12th, which she achieved at both Talladega and Kansas. Briedinger also scored top-20 finishes at Daytona and Charlotte.
The 22-year old has one DNF this season, which came after a crash at Phoenix Raceway.
