CONCORD, N.C. – Corey Heim will pursue the ARCA Menards Series championship this season aboard the No. 20 JBL Toyota Camry fielded by Venturini Motorsports.
Hailing from Georgia, Heim made his ARCA debut in 2019 as a 16-year-old running short track events. Heim joined Venturini Motorsports last season and further put his name on the map after capturing his first series win in the season finale at Kansas Speedway. Over the course of the last two partial seasons he’s earned an average finish 5.8 with 97 laps led in 16 series starts.
“It’s been a long time coming, but I’m excited to get my shot running for championship in the ARCA series,” says Heim. “It’s a great honor to race under the Venturini Motorsports banner with the confidence of Toyota behind me. I’ve got high expectations.”
Shannon Rursch will call the shots atop the pit box for Heim. The two will officially begin their journey together starting this weekend when the ARCA Menards Series begins the season with annual open test at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
“This team has a ton of resources and expects to win every time we hit the track. Having a guy like Shannon (Rursch) leading the team is a great thing, he’s really determined and we’ve already developed some great chemistry from working together last season. It’s a long season. There’s still a lot for me to learn as a driver, but I’m gonna take it one week at a time – our goal is to finish at the top when we leave Kansas in October.”
