Megan Reitenour, Miamisburg, Ohio native tests an ARCA car with Venturini Motorsports at Tri-County Speedway in Hudson, NC. Venturini Motorsports has competed in the ARCA/ReMax Series for over 25 years and is a well known and well respected team, known by most as the powerhouse in the industry today. To date Venturini Motorsports has collected rookie of the year honors, two championships, 15 wins, 15 poles, 104 top fives and 199 top tens. They now focus on producing a top-caliber driver development program for top NASCAR Series teams.
Reitenour tested an ARCA car, 3400 lbs. 800 hp engine, formally used in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. This was the first time for Reitenour in this type of race car which she once again proved she was up for the challenge. Megan had five consecutive runs consisting of scuff session, mock qualifying and intermediate runs. Mr. Venturini said, "Megan did an excellent job today. She was consistent, has great car control and listens extremely well, all things that a car owner and team look for in a driver. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for her."
Reitenour couldn't have been more pleased with the performance. "The opportunity came up with Venturini Motorsports and I jumped at the offer to do it. I concentrated on my car control and being as smooth and consistent as I could. You really have to back up your corners in these cars, it's much different than racing a late model stock. I learned a lot and had a lot of confidence in working with one of the best teams in ARCA. Billy Venturini has worked with several drivers and helped them progress all they way up into the top ranks of NASCAR, which is where I want to be. I want to continue to get as much experience as I can in a heavier body stock car, in an effort to prepare me for the next journey of my career. I would like to thank Mr. Billy Venturini and his team for working with me and I would like to thank my marketing team, MPM Marketing and my sponsors, Haus Builders, Nestor Insurance, Fox Motors and Impact Racing."
