Zane Smith is expected to compete in 18 of 20 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards events in 2017, driving the No. 55 Toyota Camry for Venturini Motorsports. Smith doesn't turn 18 until June 9 (day of the first Pocono race), which prevents the Huntington Beach, California native from competing at Daytona and Talladega. Noah Gragson will be filling in for Smith at both Daytona and Talladega. Smith's ARCA crew chief is Venturini Motorsports General Manager Billy Venturini. Smith made two ARCA starts with Venturini Motorsports in 2016, finishing 9th in his series debut at Salem Speedway after qualifying a career-best 3rd. Smith also qualified 6th at Kentucky Speedway and finished 24th. His first race of the 2017 season will be the Music City 200 at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville April 8. Fortunately, Smith has already competed at Nashville in super late model divisions. Smith has one top-5 finish in the NASCAR K&N East/West Pro Series. He's also a CARS Late Model Stock Tour veteran with 16 career starts since 2015. He has 1 CARS win in 2015 among 3 top-5 and 11 top-10 finishes overall.
