April 24, 2014 – By Doug Donnelly, ARCA PR — ARCA photo — SALEM, Ind. – When Justin Boston gets inside the race car at Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery this weekend, he will be getting behind the wheel of a winning car.

Boston will pilot Chassis No. 91 in the Federated Auto Parts 200 presented by Crunch ‘N Nutter at Salem Speedway. This is a new Toyota Camry to Justin Boston, who first track-tested it at Salem Speedway on March 16. But, Chassis No. 91 is not new to the race track – or victory lane. This Kevin Reed-prepared Toyota Camry has a winning pedigree, with both Erik Jones at Berlin Raceway and Kyle Benjamin at Madison International Speedway taking the victory lap in it during the 2013 season.

The annual Salem spring stop is the third race on the 2014 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule.

Boston is the reigning SCOTT Rookie of the Year in the ARCA Racing Series. He’s started the season with a 40th place finish at Daytona and 20th place finish at Mobile.

“I’m really excited to go back to Salem Speedway for a third time and bring everything that I learned last year there with me,” Boston said. “Our No. 25 ZLOOP Computer and Electronic Recycling Centers /JACO Environmental Toyota has been really fast there every time we have unloaded, and I expect that to continue this weekend.”

The ARCA Racing Series will host a pair of practice sessions and Menards Pole Qualifying on Saturday. The race is scheduled to go green about 2:15 Sunday. A live audio call will be available at arcaracing.com.

“Salem Speedway is one of those tracks that you just have to respect. It’s so easy to overdrive and I think that’s why we have been so successful there,” Boston said. “Our cars have been so good in the past that I never really had to overdrive there.

“I love racing at Salem and I can’t wait to get back to work this weekend. Hopefully we can keep our ZLOOP-JACO Environmental Toyota Camry up front throughout the weekend.”

Venturini Motorsports has had a long history of success at Salem.

With 22 different drivers and 48 starts at Salem since 1987, Venturini Motorsports has four victories — including Billy Venturini (2006), Steve Arpin (2010), Brennan Poole (2011) and Kyle Benjamin (2013). Over the 27 years, Venturini has three pole awards with Clint King (2011) and Justin Boston (April and September 2013), 12 top-five finishes and 21 top-10 finishes.
