From the test in early January to this weekend in the Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 Driven by General Tire at the Daytona International Speedway (DIS), one thing was evident, that all three of the Mason Mitchell Motorsports (MMM) cars were fast.
For the second time as a team in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, the 2014 championship team fielded three entries and had success doing it. Kyle Weatherman led the charge with an eighth place finish, Kaz Grala finished in tenth and Quin Houff finished 28th. Continue reading →

ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards veteran Tom Hessert, in the No. 25 Andrews-Renton Coil Spring/Venturini Motorsports Toyota, won the General Tire Pole Award Friday afternoon at Daytona Int’l Speedway for today’s Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 Driven by General Tire.
Hessert, in the sixth qualifying group, was the last car off pit road among his six-car pack. His strategy was to lay way back in order to get a run. It worked.
“Being in the back of group was obviously advantageous, so we could sit way back and get a run,” said Hessert. Hessert was so far back he seemed in danger of losing the draft altogether.
“I was worried about that….we were at least a couple hundred yards back. I was worried we weren’t going to get there, but the car did what it was supposed to do and we got it done.
“This is obviously a great start to the weekend for us. I want to thank Venturini Motorsports and all my guys on the crew…our sponsors Andrews, Renton Coil Spring, Musselman’s Apple Sauce.”
Hessert circled the 2.5-mile track in 48.143 seconds, an average speed of 186.943 mph. Friday’s pole award was Hessert’s fifth of his career and third since joining Venturini Motorsports in 2016.
Set to make his 180th career ARCA start, Hessert has notched 6 career victories to go along with 53 top-five and 106 top-ten finishes throughout his career. Already a restrictor-plate winner at Talladega in 2013, the 30-year old driver hopes to complete the sweep and park his Andrews Toyota in Daytona’s famous Victory Lane this afternoon.
Venturini Motorsports entering its 35th year of ARCA Series competition, looks to return to Daytona’s Gatorade Victory Lane for the second time in the past four years. In 2013, driver John Wes Townley delivered the team’s sole Daytona victory. VMS, the well-known ARCA fixture has compiled 43 series victories overall – 30 wins coming since 2007.
Today’s Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 Driven by General Tire is live on FS1, with live coverage beginning at 4 p.m. Eastern. In addition, arcaracing.com will feature live timing and scoring and live chat. Local radio affiliate WNDB will also provide live audio coverage of the race, which will be streamed live over arcaracing.com.
Quin Houff will turn his racing dream into a reality this weekend, making his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut in the 54th running of the Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
The 19-year-old will drive the No. 98 BeatinCancerWithDuke.org Chevrolet for Mason Mitchell Motorsports (MMM). Cancer has touched Quin on a personal level. Both of his grandmothers were diagnosed with breast cancer and his paternal grandmother, the late “Mama BJ” lost her fight recently. Houff will honor her by having her name above the driver’s window. Houff’s mother Kate has gone through two bouts with breast cancer and is cancer free. Continue reading →
