Boston Makes His NASCAR Debut at Thunder Valley

If you're going to jump behind the wheel of a NASCAR Camping World Series truck for a race then there's probably no better place to do it than Thunder Valley. Venturini Motorsports has announced that ARCA Racing Series driver Justin Boston will be making his NASCAR debut for VMS at Bristol Motor Speedway!

Boston have a familiar paint scheme and voice in his helmet. He will be driving VMS's familiar No. 25 ZLOOP Toyota Tundra in his series debut. The voice in his ear will be team owner Billy Venturini will be serving as crew chief for the August 20th running of the UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP race at Bristol.

"We're all stoked to head to Bristol to make our series debut," Boston said. "ZLOOP is the presenting sponsor for the race so it gives us a little added excitement for the day. I feel really confident going in because as a team we've always ran well on the short tracks, especially the two high-banked half-miles the ARCA Series runs on, Salem and Winchester."

Boston as been with VMS over that last few seasons racing in the ARCA Racing Series. The move to NASCAR and the Camping World Truck Series is one that Billy Venturini says is a natural one for both parties. VMS has raced in ARCA, NASCAR, Nationwide, and Truck series racing starting from a small family team. VMS is widely considered one the the strongest teams in ARCA as well as the premier developmental teams for NASCAR.

"This is a great opportunity for our team to showcase our ability to compete at the next level. We're extremely excited to carry on our relationship with Justin (Boston) and his sponsor ZLOOP," said Billy Venturini, co-owner of Venturini Motorsports. "Expanding our organization's efforts into the NASCAR Truck series has been a total team effort and a chance to build our future. We're grateful to our partners for giving us the chance to achieve our goals."
