Concord, NC (August 13, 2014) – Kevin Swindell reunites with Venturini Motorsports (VMS) this weekend to substitute for driver John Wes Townley at the famed Springfield Mile driving the No.15 Zaxby’s Toyota.
Townley will miss his third consecutive ARCA race after an accident at Pocono Raceway on August 1, 2014.
“It’s an unfortunate situation John (Townley) won’t be able to return this week but I’m glad for the opportunity Zaxby’s is providing me to return to the series driving the No.15 car,” stated Swindell. “The last time I ran here with Venturini we had a winning car but I got blocked in on pit road and it cost of the win. I’m looking forward to going back to Springfield and battling for the victory.”
Swindell who drove eight races for VMS in 2012 earned his first series victory at Chicagoland Speedway. That same year he claimed four top-5 finishes including a third place effort at Illinois State Fairgrounds (Springfield) and runner up finishes at Lucas Oil Raceway and Kansas Speedway.
Since his stint with VMS, Swindell has gone on to race 18 NASCAR Nationwide races and made his NASCAR Sprint Cup debut in 2013 at Loudon earning a 38th place finish.
