CONCORD, N.C. — Clarksville, Tenn.’s Clay Greenfield will participate in his hometown race in the ARCA Racing Series with Venturini Motorsports, partnering with the team to run next Saturday’s Troop Aid 200 at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.
The 30-year-old will make his first ARCA start in over 10 years in Venturini’s No. 55 Toyota with sponsorship for his Nashville ride being provided by Seal Master of Nashville, 1-800-SEALCOAT and Southern Pipe & Supply.
The one-race deal with Venturini places Greenfield in a ride at a track that he has over 100 race starts of experience at in late models and legend cars.
“This is the most excited I’ve been about any race in my career,” Greenfield proclaimed. “As a middle Tennessean, I have strong emotional ties with the Fairgrounds. After all the controversy surrounding the fate of the track it’s great to have a national touring series (ARCA) return and put the racing spotlight back on this historic track.”
The opportunity to race for Venturini came out of a meeting at Daytona International Speedway for this year’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series opener, a race that Greenfield attempted to make with his own team.
“I’ve followed Venturini’s success closely over the years and always wanted an opportunity to drive their equipment,” Greenfield said. “So when our NASCAR Camping World truck series haulers were parked next to each other at Daytona we started talking about the possibility of running Nashville together. Although we have a tight sponsorship budget we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go back to Nashville with a real shot of winning the race.”
The Troop Aid 200 will take place next Saturday, April 11th at 8:00 p.m CT and will be broadcast live on pay-per-view on arcaracing.com.
