(CONCORD, N.C. -- November 21, 2013) – Justin Boston and sponsor, ZLOOP Computer and Electronic Recycling Centers, have re-signed with Venturini Motorsports for the upcoming 2014 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season. Boston, last season’s SCOTT Rookie of the Year, will be back behind the wheel of his No.25 ZLOOP Toyota Camry for his sophomore season. Kevin Reed will become crew chief on the car.“I’m excited to be back after a successful rookie season,” said Boston, 24. “There’s no question we became a legitimate contender during the second half of last season. With the addition of Kevin Reed and the experience I’m carrying over into next season should provide the perfect recipe for a championship contending season.”
ZLOOP Computer and Electronic Recycling Centers will return as Boston’s primary sponsor.
“What an amazing first year for ZLOOP, Venturini Motorsports, and impressively our driver, Justin Boston, named ARCA’s Rookie of the Year,” said Bob LaBarge, Founder and CMO of ZLOOP. “We are pleased and excited to continue our sponsorship on and off the track as we educate race fans about the dangers of improperly disposing of electronic waste. As part of our ongoing commitment we will continue to grow our relationship with ARCA and the ZLOOP150 at Kentucky Speedway, and our green partnership with Pocono Raceway.”
Not to be overlooked by his rookie award, Boston finished the season third overall in ARCA’s Championship points battle which was won by Frank Kimmel who earned his unprecedented 10th series championship.
“Getting tapped to lead Justin and the 25 team next season is a huge honor,” said Kevin Reed, who led Venturini Motorsports to a season-high six victories in 2013.
“Justin showed improvement week after week and his desire to perform won him the rookie of the year award. He definitely brings his part to the team. I had the pleasure of working with Justin at the end of 2013 season in the Dover K&N race where we finished second. That gave us a great opportunity to work together before jumping into next season. I expect Justin to be the leader of the pack heading into Daytona. Hopefully he can help us repeat with a victory at Daytona. He will be an absolute favorite for the 2014 championship.”
Overall, Boston finished the 2013 ARCA season with eight top 5’s and 16 top 10’s in 21 events. He also earned two Menards Pole Awards, both at Salem Speedway.
“I can’t take anything for granted. The competition level in ARCA is getting better and better. I’m preparing physically and mentally for the challenge. The bar has been set high, but I’m confident we’ll be ready to answer the call once the season starts at Daytona. Pairing up with Kevin Reed will be a good combination; I think he’s one of the best crew chief in the series,” added Boston.
The SCOTT® Rookie of the Year award will be presented to Boston at the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards post-season championship awards banquet in Indianapolis on December 14th.
