STATESVILLE, N.C. – Lucas Oil Modified Series and Legends car driver Michael Womack will make his ARCA Racing Series debut this weekend at Road America, driving for Mason Mitchell Motorsports.
Womack will be behind the wheel of the No. 88 Champion Power Equipment Chevrolet in the 25-lap event. This race at Road America marks the only road course on the ARCA schedule.
The 17-year-old has been racing since the age of five. He started racing in go-karts and then moved his way up into Legends cars, before transitioning to the Lucas Oil Modified Series.
So far this year Womack has earned one top-five and two top-10 finishes with the series. He earned a career best finish of fourth earlier this season at Tucson Speedway.
“This is a great step for me and my racing career,” said Womack. “MMM is a top team in the series and I know they build great cars. It’s going to be a little bit of a transition to these bigger heavier cars. I know the MMM guys will do a great job of getting me comfortable behind the wheel. If we race our race and stay out of trouble, I see no reason why we can’t earn a top-five finish on Sunday.”
Womack will be the 15th different driver to race for Mason Mitchell Motorsports this season.
Mason Mitchell Motorsports’ best finish on a road course came last year at New Jersey Motorsports Park, where the team finished third with David Levine at the wheel.
