Drew Dollar to Race Full Time in ARCA for Venturini

Drew Dollar will drive the No. 15 Venturini Motorsports Toyota full-time in the ARCA Menards Series in 2020, the team announced Tuesday, Dec. 18.

“Drew is an incredibly talented young racer and I believe pairing him with Shannon (Rursch) and our No. 15 Toyota Camry team will create a true force to be reckoned with each and every week,” team owner Billy Venturini said in a team statement.

“I am excited about becoming a part of the Venturini Motorsports family for the 2020 ARCA Menards Series season,” Dollar said. “They were the class of the field throughout the 2019 season and I look forward to piloting the No. 15 Toyota Camry full-time.

“Billy (Venturini) has created one of the most hands-on driver development programs in the country and coupled with the continued support of Toyota and TRD, I am excited for this next step in my racing career.”

The 19-year-old Dollar competed in 17 races across four different racing series in 2019. He competed in two ARCA races and recorded two top-10 finishes. He also made eight starts in the ARCA Menards Series East and achieved two top fives and 7 top 10s.

Shannon Rursch will be the crew chief for Dollar in the 2020 ARCA season. Rursch was the crew chief for Michael Self in the 2019 ARCA season, winning four races and finishing second overall in the championship standings. Self has not yet announced his plans for 2020.

Dollar will drive the No. 15 Toyota, the championship-winning team from the 2019 season. The 2019 ARCA champion Christian Eckes will drive the No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2020.
