Brandon Lynn is returning to the ARCA Menards Series.
Lynn, who has made sporadic starts in the series since 2015 for various teams including Venturini Motorsports and Lira Motorsports, has reached a deal with Chad Bryant Racing to drive its No. 22 entry at Talladega Superspeedway on June 20, the team announced today, June 5.
The effort will mark Lynn’s first start this season.
The North Carolina native will later pilot the entry at Watkins Glen International on Aug. 14.
“I’m very thankful for this opportunity with Chad Bryant Racing,” Lynn said in a team release. “The team has always had a lot of speed at the superspeedways and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do on the track. Talladega has always been one of my better tracks in ARCA competition and I hope I’m able to showcase that with Chad Bryant Racing and contend for the win in a few weeks.”
Since debuting in the series at age 19, Lynn has notched five top-10 finishes in 11 starts. Lynn’s best finish came last season at Talladega, where he earned a third-place finish after starting from the pole.
“Brandon is an exceptional superspeedway racer and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do in our equipment,” team owner Chad Bryant said. “His experience should put us in good position to contend for our first win of the season.”
Since the team’s inception in 2018, CBR has collected four victories with Ty Majeski and Joe Graf Jr, both of whom have moved on to the national touring series of NASCAR. This season, the team entered two cars for Connor Hall and Jacob Heafner at Daytona International Speedway.
Carolina Excavation will sponsor Lynn’s Talladega effort, while veteran NASCAR crew member Paul Andrews will sit atop the pit box as crew chief for both events.
