Venturini Motorsports (VMS) announced today the return of Toni Breidinger as the full-time driver for the No.25 Toyota Camry for NASCAR’s upcoming 2024 ARCA Menards Series season.
The 24-year old California native is coming off a strong 2023 season. In 2023, Breidinger ran a part time schedule in the ARCA Menards Series, achieving podium finish at Kansas Speedway as well as collecting 4 Top 5’s and 8 Top 10’s.
Breidinger, who is breaking down barriers for women in motorsports – made history in her NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut finishing P.15 and making the highest place debut finish by a female in the history of the sport. Breidinger is currently one of the most followed drivers on social media in NASCAR, with over 5 million followers.
Outside of racing, Breidinger is an accomplished model who has been featured in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Aritzia, GAP, and FP Movement.
“I’m really excited to run another full season with Toyota Racing and Venturini Motorsports,” says Breidinger. “Working with Toyota Racing and Venturini Motorsports has given me the tools and resources to develop as a driver.”
“This is a great opportunity for me and I’m ready to capitalize on the moment. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make this all come together and I’m grateful for the support I’ve be able to pursue my dreams. I truly cannot thank my partners enough for believing in not only me, but female athletes. I’m ready to kick off this season with Toyota and VMS at Daytona.”
NASCAR Pinty’s Series Champion Cayden Lapevich will lead Breidinger’s No. 25 Toyota team serving as crew chief.
“It’s great to have Toni back with the team full-time. Her growth behind the wheel is as impressive as I’ve seen with any other driver throughout the years – she’s really come into her own,” says team owner Billy Venturini.
“Toni is a great driver to work with and a real asset to our team. I expect good things from her and the team this year.”
A full list of sponsors will be released in the upcoming weeks.
Serving as Toyota Racing Development’s (TRD) official driver development program, VMS possesses a rich tradition of winning in the ARCA Menards Series with 99 wins and five ARCA championships. Known for their success preparing tomorrow’s future NASCAR stars for the spotlight at the highest level of the sport, VMS holds the most wins in series history.
