A Look Back: Michael Self captured his third win of the 2019 ARCA Menards Series season, and sixth win of his career at Michigan International Speedway. Self led 86 laps en route to victory, but he didn’t capture the checkered flag without enduring some stress. Though he dominated the majority of the race, leading by over 14 seconds at one time, Self made a last-lap last-corner pass when two-time 2019 series winner Ty Majeski ran out fuel. Self leads the series points by a slim margin of only 15 over second-place Bret Holmes.

A Look Ahead: Self and the Sinclair Oil Dino Racing team will head back to the short track scene this weekend for Self’s inaugural start at Madison International Speedway. Though Self has never made a lap at the .5-mile Oregon, WI based track, Venturini Motorsports has captured four wins with four different drivers at Madison since 2011.

Self on Madison: “I’m not really sure what to expect heading to Madison for the first time. I’ve talked to a lot of people about the track and I’ve watched some video and it definitely looks challenging, but also similar to some of the places I used to race in the K&N Pro Series West. I’m hoping those past experiences will help me get up to speed quickly and we can go have some fun and hopefully bring home a good result on Friday night. The 25 team has done such a great job bringing fast cars to every race this year, it’s nice to go in knowing I can rely on that and just work on figuring the track out.”
