PRESS RELEASE UPDATED: OCT 10, 2018
KANSAS CITY, Kan., October 10, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Anthony Alfredo will climb into his MDM Motorsports Toyota for the 2018 ARCA Racing Series season finale, the Kansas ARCA 150 at Kansas Speedway on Friday, October 19.
Alfredo will be behind the wheel of the Ceco Building Systems, Oxford Energy, Mechanic Shop MDM Motorsports Toyota No. 40 for the race, which will be his second start in the ARCA Series and his first on a 1.5-mile superspeedway.
A student at UNC-Charlotte, the easygoing Alfredo is anxious to hit the track following a season in NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series East in which he finished fifth in the championship standings and won at South Boston Speedway earlier in the year.
“I am very excited to head to Kansas for my second ARCA race and first start on a 1.5-mile race track,” Alfredo said with his trademark smile. “First, I want to thank those who have made this possible for me. I’m pumped to chase one more win now that the K&N season is over. After racing at Gateway in the ARCA car, I believe I have a better feel for them. I learned that they are comparable to the K&N cars. I also learned a lot about aerodynamics in traffic at places like Dover, so I can apply that as well. Knowing the success MDM has had in the ARCA series this year, I am going in with confidence that I will have a car to run up front. Plus, I’ll be able to lean on my teammates. I’m ready to get to the track and go racing!”
The Kansas ARCA 150 at Kansas Speedway is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. CST start time on Friday, October 19. The race will be televised live on Fox Sports 2.
