Benjamin, Jones added to Madison entry list

(TOLEDO, Ohio – August 19, 2014) – The entry list for Sunday’s Herr’s Live Life With Flavor 200 at Madison International Speedway might be one of the best of the 2014 ARCA Racing Series season.

The entry list

Not only does it include the usual lineup of ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards heavy-hitters, the entry list now has added two-time winner Brandon Jones, in a Turner-Scott Motorsports entry plus defending race winner Kyle Benjamin in the No. 37 Ford owned by his father, Steve Benjamin.

The ARCA Racing Series’ event at Madison is a two-day event with practice and qualifying on Saturday, August 23 and the Herr’s Live Life With Flavor 200 on Sunday, August 24. The race will be broadcast live at 3 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network.

Benjamin is returning to the series for the first time since Elko Speedway when he finished seventh while driving for Roulo Brothers Racing. He had made five starts with Roulo Brothers this year.

Last season, at age 15, Benjamin won two ARCA races, including the event at Madison when he became the youngest winner in series history while driving for Venturini Motorsports with Kevin Reed as his crew chief.

Jones has made a big splash in his two ARCA races this season – winning them both. He won his ARCA debut at Winchester, then repeated the accomplishment by winning at Lucas Oil Raceway. His entry is in the No. 4 Richmond-Menards Chevrolet.

It’s part of a busy week for Jones, who will be racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway Wednesday.
