Entry List: 2020 General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200

The ARCA Menards Series heads north to Pocono Raceway for its fourth race of the season, following up a relatively uneventful race at Talladega Superspeedway with the Tricky Triangle.

Michael Self, Chandler Smith and Drew Dollar won at Daytona International Speedway, Phoenix Raceway and Talladega, respectively, to start the season. Ty Majeski and Christian Eckes both won at Pocono in 2019, but neither are entered in the upcoming race there.

Just 20 cars are currently entered for this Friday’s race in Pennsylvania, meaning all will make the field, barring any entry list changes.

Don Thompson makes his first appearance of 2020 in Wayne Peterson Racing’s No. 0 entry. Thompson has raced on and off since 2011, all but one of his 17 starts coming with WPR. It’ll be his first race since Pocono last July, when he entered but did not start the event.

Late model driver Russ Lane will make his ARCA debut for his self-owned team in the No. 8, while Smith returns to Venturini Motorsports’ No. 20 for the second time this season. Smith won in his only start this year at Phoenix.

Longtime NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series driver Clay Greenfield is enters his first ARCA race since 2015. Greenfield previously raced for Wayne Peterson Racing and Venturini Motorsports in two ARCA starts – WPR in 2004 and Venturini in 2015 – but joins Fast Track Racing to drive its No. 11 at Pocono.

Ty Gibbs jumps back in the No. 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing in his second race of the season. Gibbs and Xfinity Series driver Riley Herbst have alternated races in the Toyota so far this season, Herbst finishing fourth last weekend at Talladega. Gibbs won the pole at Phoenix, finishing third.

Sam Mayer and GMS Racing return for Pocono, only having raced at Phoenix this year – where Mayer finished 20th. Derek Griffith will pilot Chad Bryant Racing’s No. 22 at Pocono, his only 2020 race an ARCA Menards Series East race at New Smyrna Speedway. Griffith finished second after starting on the pole; Mayer won that race.
