ARCA Preview: VizCom 200

The ARCA Menards Series heads to the Michigan International Speedway on Friday, June 7, for the VizCom 200.

Ty Majeski has kicked off a string of momentum starting with his victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway. That momentum carried into last weekend, as Majeski came out on the right side of strategy, earning his second victory in a row. This weekend, Majeski looks to become the first driver to earn three victories in a row in ARCA since Austin Theriault did it in 2017.

Majeski is also looking to deliver Ford its first victory at Michigan in ARCA since Chris Buescher won in 2012. His teammate Joe Graf Jr. is also looking to earn his first victory of 2019 and could use a victory at Michigan to propel him closer to the championship. Graf sits in fifth, 135 points behind the leader.

That leader is Michael Self, who is looking for some momentum after three straight mechanical issues. Despite having those technical issues, Self manages to hold a 30-point lead over second-place Bret Holmes. Holmes himself has been mounting a charge, coming close to earning his first career victory at Charlotte. He backed it up with a fifth place. Christian Eckes rounds out the points contenders, currently 80 points behind; he earned a strong third last weekend.

This weekend Brandon McReynolds returns to the No. 28 for KBR Development after finishing 20th in Charlotte a few weeks ago with an axle failure. McReynolds has had two straight run-ins with bad luck and will look to turn that around this weekend in Michigan.

Myatt Snider makes his return to the ARCA Menards Series for the first time since 2017. Snider made one start that season with Mason Mitchell Motorsports, finishing ninth at Kansas Speedway. Snider jumps behind the wheel of a Toyota for the first time in his ARCA career, piloting the No. 20 for Venturini Motorsports. The same car that has visited victory lane with both Todd Gilliland (Daytona International Speedway) and Chandler Smith (Toledo Speedway).
