Brandon Lynn Determined to Tame Talladega Returns to the ARCA Menards Series

Brandon Lynn will return to the seat driving for Venturini Motorsports (VMS) in the ARCA Menards Series (ARCA) during the upcoming General Tire 200 at Talladega Superspeedway on Friday, April 26. 

Lynn, 24, who made his ARCA Series debut in 2015, returns to the series after most recently competing in a pair of races last year with VMS earning top-10 finishes in both starts at Talladega Superspeedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

With ten-career ARCA starts under his belt, Lynn nearly won at Talladega in 2017 but fell victim to fuel mileage in an overtime thriller. Leading on the final lap in regulation, Lynn’s hopes emptied as he ran out of gas after a late race caution forced overtime. 

Lynn will make his only scheduled series start of the season driving VMS’ No.20 Toyota Camry (sponsorship to be announced) with Billy Venturini serving as crew chief. 

Hoping to make the most of his opportunity, last year’s seventh-place finisher is amped up and ready to get after it again. 

“Excited to have another shot at Talladega,” Lynn said.

“This will be my third shot at this track – the first two didn’t go our way but I’m hoping to capitalize this year with my Venturini Motorsports team. Last year we had an amazing car and I’m glad to be back in that same ride. It’s a fast car for sure. Definitely a lot more pressure this time as Harrison (Burton) got it done in the same car at Daytona. I’m ready to help pull off the superspeedway sweep for VMS with our number twenty Toyota Camry.”

All but three of Lynn’s 10 career ARCA starts have come on either intermediate or superspeedways tracks. With limited chances the New York native has posted four top-10 finishes. 

The General Tire 200 at Talladega Superspeedway will air live on FS1 April 26 at 6:00pm EDT.
