Wisconsin driver 19-year old Natalie Decker joins the stout lineup over at Venturini Motorsports for three races this season in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Decker will make her ARCA Racing Series debut on May 21 at the Toledo Speedway.
She will compete in three consecutive races starting with Toledo followed by Elko Speedway in Minnesota. She will take part in the open test at the Pocono Raceway where she will look to gain approval to run on ARCA Superspeedways. Should she gain approval to run the superspeedways, she will make her final start of the season at Pocono.
“This is definitely the biggest step in my racing career so far,” said Decker. “Racing takes sponsorship support, and it takes hearing a lot of no’s before you find a yes. I’m so blessed and thankful to ‘N Twenty-Nine Capital Partners’ (N|29) for believing in me and providing this opportunity to compete with Venturini Motorsports,” she stated in the team release.
“I’m super excited to be racing under the Venturini Motorsports – Toyota banner this season. Signing with Venturini Motorsports gives me a great opportunity to showcase my talent on a national level. Billy (Venturini) and his team have a strong reputation and proven track record…aligning myself with a group of this caliber was important to me and my sponsors. Now, the rest is up to me to perform at the high level I know I’m capable of,” Decker added.
Her cousins, Paige and Claire Decker, have both made starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Paige has made two starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with Obaika Racing last season.
