This Saturday, Simpsonville, South Carolina’s Colby Howard will make his return to the ARCA Menards Series at Salem Speedway. In just three career ARCA starts, Howard has earned three Top 10 finishes, with an average finish of 9.0 heading into the weekend.
The high banked Indiana short track was the site of Howard’s ARCA Menards Series debut in 2018, where he started and finished in eighth. This time around, the 18-year-old plans on bettering his results with Win-Tron Racing in the No. 32 Project Hope/Yurpal, Inc. Chevrolet.
Howard was quoted saying, “I am really looking forward to returning to Salem. We had a good run in the test on Tuesday, and should have had a Top 5 finish in last year’s race until I made a mistake on pit road. This time around, it should be better, because our car is really solid on old tires, which is critical on Salem’s worn out surface.”
Earlier this season, Colby Howard debuted for team owner Kevin Cywinski and crew chief Jamie Jones at Iowa Speedway. The No. 32 team finished tenth at Iowa, and plan on bringing the same racecar to Salem.
Colby is yet another talented young prospect represented by PMG to make his way up the stock car racing ladder. He cites PMG’s guidance as being a key factor to his successful career.
The ARCA Menards Series heads to Salem Speedway on Saturday, September 14th, for the running of the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic 200. Fans can tune into MAVTV at 7:00 PM Eastern Time to see live coverage of the race, or follow along on www.ARCAracing.com for live updates.
