The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards will return to New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2015, the eighth consecutive season the 63-year-old stock car racing series will race on the Millville, New Jersey road course.

“New Jersey Motorsports Park has become a key stop on the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards tour since our inaugural event there in 2008,” said ARCA President Ron Drager. “The diverse nature of the series schedule with short tracks, superspeedways, dirt and paved surfaces, is made whole with the NJMP road course event. Our long standing partnership with Lee Brahin, Brad Scott and their team at ‘The Park’ has established the track as the most significant road course venue in the six-decade history of our series.”

The road course race will be part of the diverse set of tracks for ARCA, which will also race on superspeedways, short tracks and dirt tracks.

“New Jersey Motorsports Park is thrilled to welcome back the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards during the May 23-24, 2015 race weekend in Millville,” said Park general manager/COO Brad Scott. “ARCA has been an annual highlight of our event schedule, bringing some of the brightest young stars in stock car racing to Thunderbolt Raceway and providing some of our most memorable and exciting finishes to date.”

Andrew Ranger of Quebec, Canada, is the four-time defending ARCA winner at New Jersey. He won from the Menards Pole presented by Ansell in 2011, 2012 and 2014. He also holds the ARCA qualifying record and race record.

“The facility is amazing,” Ranger said. “It is a great road course. It has a very fast part of the track, the long straight-away. It’s also slippery and technical at the same time. It’s a big challenge.”

Justin Allgaier, Patrick Long and Casey Roderick are the other New Jersey winners in an ARCA car.
