It’s been two months since Michael Self last took to the track in the ARCA Racing Series, but this Friday night, Self will climb back aboard the green and white No. 55 Sinclair Oil Toyota and look to build on the success he had earlier in the summer. Self, with Venturini Motorsports, will head to Indianapolis, IN. for the Shore Lunch 200 at the .6-mile Lucas Oil Raceway Park.

“It’s been way too long since I raced last,” said Self. “I’m definitely ready to be back behind the wheel and competing this weekend. Lucas Oil Raceway Park is a neat track. It’s got a lot of history. Short track racing isn’t my favorite by any means, but LORP is so unique in how you drive it, it makes it fun. I was so close to getting a win last year. I got passed for the lead with 8 laps to go after a late caution, so hopefully I can use what learned last year and put our No. 55 Sinclair Oil Toyota in a similar position at the end but bring home a slightly better result.”

In Self’s only start at the track, he finished second in the 2017 ARCA Racing Series event after leading 29 laps.

Lucas Oil Raceway will be Self’s eighth start of the season. Self, a three-time series winner in 16 ARCA series starts, has recorded two victories, one pole and has led a total of 163-laps on the season driving for Venturini Motorsports.

The Shore Lunch 200 is set for Friday, September 7 at Lucas Oil Raceway in the Indianapolis suburb of Clermont, Indiana. Practice is scheduled for 2 to 3:30 pm ET, General Tire Pole Qualifying is 6 pm ET, and the green flag will wave at 9 pm ET. MAVTV will broadcast the race live.
