After competing with Venturini Motorsports last year, Parker Chase will return to the team in a larger part-time capacity, the team announced January 10.
Chase will pilot the No. 15 Toyota in nine ARCA Menards Series events this year. He’ll begin the season at its season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Chase will then compete at Phoenix Raceway, Talladega Superspeedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Pocono Raceway, Watkins Glen International, Kansas Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway.
“I’m excited more and more as the season approaches,” Chase said in the team release. “I grew up watching NASCAR races at places like Daytona, Talladega and Pocono, and now I’ve got my chance to compete on those same tracks. I can honestly say throughout all my years of racing this season is going to be one of the most exciting years yet. There’s still a lot for me to learn as I continue to work in the TRD driver development program and I feel we made a lot of progress last year running a handful of ARCA races and they really prepared us for this year’s schedule.”
Chase drove in four ARCA races last year after debuting in 2020 on the Daytona International Speedway road course. He earned his career-best finish of fourth place at Charlotte last year and has five top 10s.
Chase joins the Venturini brigade of part-time competitors as the team already announced Jonathan Shafer, Connor Jones and Landon Pembelton will compete part-time. Jesse Love and Corey Heim will also split the driving duties of the No. 20.
