2018 Pirelli World Challenge Champion, Parker Chase, will return to Venturini Motorsports to compete in 10 ARCA Menards Series events in 2022, beginning with the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.
The 20-year-old will compete for VMS in the No. 15 Toyota Camry for nine events in ARCA’s premier division, along with a single effort in the ARCA Menards Series West at Phoenix.
Chase will compete at a variety of tracks throughout the 2022 season, including Daytona, Phoenix, Talladega, Charlotte, Mid-Ohio, Pocono, Watkins Glen, Kansas, and Bristol.
“I’m excited more and more as the season approaches. I grew up watching NASCAR races at places like Daytona, Talladega, and Pocono, and now I’ve got my chance to compete on those same tracks,” said Chase. “I can honestly say throughout all my years of racing this season is going to be one of the most exciting years yet. There’s still a lot for me to learn as I continue to work in the TRD driver development program and I feel we made a lot of progress last year running a handful of ARCA races and they really prepared us for this year’s schedule.”
After finishing inside the top-10 in back-to-back years in the Rolex 24 and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, Chase is excited to make his stock car debut around Daytona’s 2.5-mile superspeedway.
“Daytona is a special place, it’s legendary, it’s every race car driver’s dream track. There are so many drivers who’ll never have the chance to experience the beauty of the track and running the high-banks at top speed. I’m thankful for the support and opportunity TRD and VMS have given me to compete in 2022 at Daytona. The ARCA race at Daytona is going to be special beyond words and I know Kevin Reed will have us a great car for the race. Competing in the 24 hours of Daytona and now with the chance to run the oval, it’s honestly a bucket list dream I’ll soon check off.”
In 2021, Chase competed in multiple ARCA Menards Series events for Venturini Motorsports, scoring a career-best finish of fourth at Charlotte, before grabbing three consecutive top-10s at Winchester, Bristol, and Kansas.
