Concord, North Carolina (August 23, 2017) – Veteran driver Bo LeMastus will join Venturini Motorsports (VMS) for two races starting with Sunday’s ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards event at Road America and again at Salem Speedway on September 9.
LeMastus, a native of Louisville, Kentucky will pilot the team’s No.55 Toyota with familiar Crosley Brands serving as primary sponsor for both events.
“I’m excited for today’s announcement and the opportunity to run with Venturini Motorsports for these two (Road America and Salem Speedway) ARCA races,” said LeMastus. “We’ve always had a great relationship off the track – this is something we’ve talked about doing together and now we have our chance.”
Sunday’s Road America appearance will mark LeMastus’ second career start on the four-mile, 14-turn Wisconsin road circuit and his fourth overall road course start over the last five years. His career best road course finish of 12th came at New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2015.
“Road course racing has always been one of my favorite forms of racing. Going back to Road America is a great privilege – I’m happy to see it back on the ARCA schedule. There’s no question it’s one of the premier racing facilities in the country – a lot of fun to race, it’s a very demanding and technical track. I’m really looking forward to Sunday and seeing what we can do.”
This weekend’s Road America event will be LeMastus’ sixth start of the 2017 season. His season high finish of 10th came early in the year at Talladega Superspeedway.
Since making his series debut in 2013 LeMastus has made 39 starts scoring a career best 6th at Daytona Int’l Speedway in 2016. In 2015, during his only full season effort LeMastus finished sixth in ARCA’s national driver point standings.
Prior to competing in the ARCA Series LeMastus is also a veteran of SCCA, NASA/SCCA, HSR, WERA, SVRA and VSCDA road racing. Some of the well-known tracks where LeMastus has logged laps over the years include Mid Ohio Sports Car Course, Sebring, Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, Road America, New Jersey Motorsports Park and Daytona.
When he’s not pursuing his passion for motorsports, Bo LeMastus is the CEO of Crosley Brands, which manufactures vintage electronics under the Crosley Brand name.
