For the third time in his career, Michael Self made the journey to Kansas Speedway for the ARCA Racing Series finale on Friday night, with Sinclair Oil on board his No. 15 Venturini Motorsports Toyota.

The defending Kansas race winner, Self turned in another solid performance narrowly missing out
on his third victory of the season finishing third behind race winner Sheldon Creed and second-place finisher Harrison Burton. Self, who led 15 of the event’s 100 laps, was in position on the final restart of the night but couldn’t hold the advantage during the short dash to the checkered flag.

“I’m disappointed we weren’t able to bring home the win after leading late but I’ll definitely take third
after the rough couple of races I’ve had lately,” said Self. “Our No. 15 Sinclair Oil Toyota was awesome
on long runs, but unfortunately we just didn’t get very many green flag laps to capitalize on that. The
guys worked hard on the car all day and made a lot of progress on our balance, and the pit crew was
spot on with their stops, so big thanks to those guys.”

The 27-year old’s Kansas finish was his sixth top-5 effort in ten starts on the year driving for Venturini
Motorsports. He finishes the season notching two wins (Daytona and Chicago) along with capturing his
first career General Tire pole award at Talladega. His overall effort along with teammates’ Christian
Eckes and Chandler Smith behind the wheel of the No. 15 helped VMS claim second place in this year’s
ARCA Racing Series Team Owner Championship points standings.
