“My team made it easy on me,” said Heim. “I had a great teammate with me the whole way. Venturini Motorsports – the most organized team out here. Toyota Racing has helped me get here. Crescent Tools…It all came together for this race, and it worked out.:
Heim’s Venturini teammate, Parker Chase, played the supporting role by pushing him throughout most of the race. Chase was on Heim’s bumper as they raced past the checkered flag to give Venturini the one-two finish.
“The objective here today was to have a Venturini car win, and we succeeded that,” Chase said. “Five in a row for Venturini, which is incredible. That’s what we came here to do.”
The Best of the Rest
Daniel Dye from DeLand, Florida attends high school just a few miles from Daytona and finished in third place.
“To finish third, with us points racing this year, I think there were 36 cars in this race — to be in the top five and finish third clean is a great start to our year.” said Dye. “I’m just proud to be here and part of this GMS team.”
Sean Corr and Gus Dean round out the top five while Andy Jankowiak, Mason Diaz, Dave Mader III, Toni Breidinger, and Ryan Huff complete the top ten.
