MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Toni Breidinger will compete in a limited schedule of ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events for Young’s Motorsports this season, beginning with the Feb. 13 ARCA season opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
Breidinger, a native of Hillsborough, Calif., will make her first ARCA Menards Series start since 2018 where she competed in three races.
“I’m very thankful for this opportunity to continue the next steps of my racing career with Young’s Motorsports,” said Breidinger.
“It’s going to be a busy year of competition in ARCA Menards Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, but I feel like the program that we have assembled at Young’s Motorsports will be influential in completing our goals and setting the path for the future.”
When Breidinger makes her Truck Series debut in 2021, she will become the first Arabic-American female driver to participate in any NASCAR national series.
“Daytona is going to be the biggest race of my career, but I’m ready for it,” added Breidinger who participated in the open ARCA test with Young’s Motorsports at Daytona last month. “It’s going to be a competitive race, but I know that the Young’s Motorsports team will prepare me a fast race car and we can contend for a top-10 finish. That is our goal, a top-10 finish.”
A USAC regional winner, Breidinger shifted her attention from dirt to asphalt and most recently finished fourth in the Carolina Pro Late Model Series in 2020 with DLP Motorsports.
“We are thrilled to add Toni Breidinger to our Young’s Motorsports portfolio in 2021,” said Young’s Motorsports team principal Tyler Young. “She is not only motivated but determined to make her season a successful one. We know that she can go to Daytona next week and be competitive and contend to become the first ARCA Menards Series national series female winner.”
