Just a few weeks after the end of the 2023 ARCA Menards Season, and less than a week after the 2024 schedule dropped, we already know one driver who will be joining the ARCA Menards Series full-time.
Kris Wright announced that he and Venturini Motorsports (VMS) will team up for the full 2024 ARCA Menards Series schedule, kicking off with Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 17th, 2024.
The 29-year-old will pilot the No. 15 Toyota Camry for VMS with sponsorship from F.N.B. Corporation. Wright will be looking to grow his 2023 starts with the team as they head into their second season together. He made three starts total last season, between the ARCA Menards Series and the ARCA Menards Series West last year.

“Wright has shown impressive speed across a wide range of tracks since joining Venturini Motorsports,” said Billy Venturini, General Manager and Owner of Venturini Motorsports.
“I believe he has a strong chance to contend consistently throughout next season’s entire schedule,” he added.
The driver from Wexford, PA has starts crossing through ARCA, the NASCAR Craftsman Trucks, and the NASCAR Xfinity Series in his racing career. He has 20 starts in total across the ARCA Platform with 11 top 10s and 1,928 laps led across the ARCA Menards, ARCA Menards Series East, and ARCA West Series. Last season, Wright also ran 11 races for Youngs Motorsports in the Truck Series.
Wright joins the team looking to go back-to-back for the drivers and owners championship. VMS took both in 2023 with the No. 20 team and Jesse Love.
F.N.B. Corporation, based in Pittsburgh, will return to NASCAR with Wright for its fifth consecutive season and will be a primary partner with the team throughout 2024.
You can catch Kris’ full-time start with VMS at the season opener at Daytona International Speedway on February 17th, 2024 at 1:30 PM live on FS1.
