Phoenix Raceway today announced the return of the ARCA Menards Series in 2021 with races during each of the two annual NASCAR event weekends, including the ARCA Menards Series West championship event on November 6 as part of NASCAR Championship Weekend. The series is the top developmental ladder for drivers looking to make the next step to one of NASCAR’s three national series as well as a proving ground for some of the best short-track veterans.
“We’re thrilled to host the ARCA Menards Series for two events at Phoenix Raceway once again in 2021 and look forward to crowning another champion in the series next November,” said Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese. “It’s important that we continue delivering action-packed on-track excitement for our fans and this series offers us that opportunity while also showcasing many of the up-and-coming drivers in stock car racing.”
The series’ first stop through the Valley of the Sun at Phoenix Raceway will be on Friday, March 12 as part of the track’s NASCAR spring event weekend featuring the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the NASCAR Cup Series. This ARCA Menards Series event will be the first race in the Sioux Chief Showdown, a ten-race series within a series that brings together the best from the ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East and ARCA Menards Series West.
The ARCA Menards Series West will once again crown its season champion at Phoenix Raceway when the series returns as part of a Saturday doubleheader with the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship on November 6. The event will be one of four championship races over three days as part of NASCAR Championship Weekend, which will also include the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship and the NASCAR Cup Series championship. ARCA Menards Series West crowned a champion at Phoenix for the first time earlier this year when 15-year-old California-native Jesse Love took home his first ARCA title.
