“It’s exciting to take the next step in ARCA with a team like Venturini Motorsports,” Jones said in a team release. “They’ve been one of the most dominant teams in ARCA for a long time. It gives me added confidence knowing I’m surrounded by a lot of successful people and racing really good equipment. I’m looking at this as an opportunity to learn as much as I can for the future. I’ll be really happy if I can go out and run top five, top 10 each week.”
