In an announcement with just less than two weeks away from the season opener, Takuma Koga, a mainstay in the ARCA Menards Series West, is gearing up to make a notable debut at the beginning of the 2024 season as he will be joining Fast Track Racing, owned by the two-time Daytona winner, Andy Hillenburg, as he takes on the iconic Daytona International Speedway.

The driver from Nagoya, Japan expressed his excitement for the chance to take on the superspeedway. “It is an absolute dream come true. Growing up in Japan, I wasn’t exposed to American stock car racing, but I remember my first introduction to NASCAR at age 12, and it was Daytona. To be able to race on this track is such a huge honor for me.”

The 46-year-old recently participated in the annual pre-season test on January 12-13, where earned his Superspeedway license also with Fast Track Racing.

Koga has been a staple in the West, running in the series since 2002. Over his career, he’s earned four top fives, 24 top 10’s has a career best points finish of sixth in 2022.

He is also coming off a successful 2023 ARCA Menards Series West campaign under his belt with a 9th place points finish, extending his streak to six consecutive Top 10 standings, showcasing his consistency.

Adding to the excitement for Takuma, veteran crew chief Todd Parrott, the 1999 Cup Series Champion Crew Chief, will be calling the shots from the pit box for Koga, while Andy Hillenburg, the 1995 ARCA Menards Series Champion Driver, will be his spotter for the 2.5-mile track.

“I would like to thank Fast Track Racing for giving me the opportunity and, of course, all the teams and fans that have supported me throughout my career,” Koga added.

Joining the team are his sponsors MACNICA and CKB.
