He ran one ARCA race in 2023 at Watkins Glen, where he finished second after leading 34 of 42 laps, also in Pinnacle’s No. 28.

The news comes after a slew of announced races for Zilisch throughout the season. At the beginning of the year, he announced a developmental deal with Trackhouse Racing, which puts him in JR Motorsports’ No. 88 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for a four-race deal, plus a three-event run in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with Spire Motorsports.

Zilisch is the third driver to pilot a car for Pinnacle so far in 2024. Shane van Gisbergen drove the No. 28 in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, while Connor Mosack ran it at Phoenix Raceway.
