Scott Sheldon, Talladega Superspeedway Pre-Race Advance‏

Recommended Posts













ROOKIE STRIPE: Scott Sheldon will make his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut this weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway. The driver turned his first laps in an ARCA car during the December open test session at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Sheldon cut his teeth racing legend cars and late models on the West Coast.




TRAVEL IS OUR DEAL: Allegiant Travel will adorn the sides of Sheldons No. 20 Chevrolet Impala for this Saturdays event at Talladega. Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, Allegiant makes leisure travel affordable and convenient. With low-low fares, nonstop, all-jet service and premier travel partners, Allegiant provides a complete travel experience with great value and without all the hassle.

EYES IN THE SKY: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Joey Coulter will spot for Sheldon during his superspeedway debut. Coulter, an ARCA Racing Series veteran, will guide and coach his driver through the ins and outs of restrictor plate racing. Most recently, Coulter guided GMS Racing teammate Spencer Gallagher to a second-place finish at Salem (Ind.) Speedway one week ago.




DOUBLE DUTY: In addition to Coulter being on the spotter stand, the No. 21 Truck Series team will service Sheldons Allegiant Travel Chevrolet throughout the race weekend.




CHASSIS INFORMATION: Sheldon will pilot Chassis No. 89 in the International Motorsports Hall of Fame 200 at Talladega Superspeedway. This chassis, originally in the Richard Childress Racing stable, last saw racing action in 2012 with driver Ty Dillon behind the wheel. Sheldon will make his first laps in this Chevrolet during practice on Friday.

SCOTT SHELDON QUOTE: Im really excited to be making my ARCA Racing Series debut at Talladega this weekend. Even though I havent made any laps around the track yet, I feel good with the seat time I was able to get at the Daytona test. The team has told me the No. 20 Chevrolet is going to be very fast and competitive which is all I can hope for. Many thanks go out to Allegiant Travel and GMS Racing for supporting my efforts to race.
