Dutch Boy 150 at Kansas Speedway
WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
For the first time in his young career, Rajah Caruth enters an ARCA Menards Series event as the championship points leader.
Caruth heads to Kansas for the Dutch Boy 150 at the top of the standings after three races, but he has a mirror full of his Rev Racing teammate Nick Sanchez.
Sanchez is coming off his second ARCA Menards Series victory in the most recent race at Talladega Superspeedway, where he used a three-wide move moments before the final caution flag waved to steal the lead and secure the victory.
Both drivers are among the expected participants for the Dutch Boy 150.
Venturini Motorsports heads to Kansas with three entries, headlined by Daytona victor Corey Heim in the No. 20 Toyota, who was one of the drivers Sanchez passed at Talladega to earn the victory.
Toni Breidinger continues her full season of competition with Venturini in the No. 25 Toyota, while Gus Dean picks up an additional ARCA event with Venturini in the No. 15 Toyota.
Drew Dollar returns to pilot the No. 18 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports, and Connor Mosack takes the reins of the No. 23 Chevrolet for Bret Holmes Racing.
With Scott Melton recovering from a leg injury following a crash at Talladega Superspeedway last month, Will Kimmel will return to ARCA competition as the driver of the No. 69 Toyota.
South Africa’s Arnot Kok is expected to make his second ARCA Menards Series start Saturday afternoon, while Ron Vandermeir Jr. is slated to make his season debut after making three ARCA starts last season.
Other expected entries include Greg Van Alst, Amber Balcaen, Alex Clubb and Ryan Huff, among others.
