Michael Self Quote:
"I cannot thank the Venturini family and the Venturini Motorsports organization enough for giving me this opportunity. They have been great to work with from the first time we talked, and we have had good chemistry together since I got a chance to drive one of their cars at Daytona International Speedway at the December test.

"We topped the board at the Daytona test, and then went on to Mobile International Speedway to test again. Our team had a great week there, so I can't wait to get back to Mobile this weekend to grab the same results. Everyone in the organization has been great with assisting my adaptation to the ARCA Racing Series chassis. I really couldn't ask for a better team to make my series debut with, and I don't think I could ask for a better place to do it than in my "birth state," with my family and friends supporting us."
