Gus Dean Adds Kansas Speedway to Venturini Motorsports ARCA Program

Two-time ARCA Menards Series winner Gus Dean (@gusdean) has added Saturday afternoon’s Dutch Boy 150 race to his Venturini Motorsports 2022 ARCA Menards Series schedule.

Dean, a native of Bluffton, SC returned to the ARCA Menards Series in 2022 after a two-year hiatus and finished twice in the top five aboard the #55 Toyota Camry Dean Custom Air at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and the series’ most recent race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on April 23.

Although he missed the series’ second race of the year at Phoenix (Arizona) Raceway, he is seventh in the championship standings.

Dean will drive the #15 Toyota Camry Mobil 1 with Kevin Reed Sr. as crew chief.

“I’m very grateful to add this race with Venturini Motorsports,” said Dean. “Everyone at Venturini Motorsports has certainly been great to work with and we’ve had some good runs in our two races together. Our goal in Kansas is to win.

“Anything short of a win would be a disappointment.

The popular ARCA driver has already made four ARCA Menards Series starts on the 1.5 mile track with a top 10 finish during his last visit in the 2019 season finale of the ARCA Menards Series with AM Racing.

“I love Kansas Speedway, but I don’t have the finishes to show it,” Dean added. “Hopefully we can change that with our #15 Mobil 1 Toyota Camry and build our laptop for my next scheduled ARCA race at Michigan International Speedway in August.”

The 27-year-old South Carolinian is in the midst of a busy 2022 season combining ARCA, Late Models, Mud Truck Racing and a hopeful sporadic appearance or two in one of NASCAR’s national series.

“With no championship on the line for me this season, it’s all about having fun,” Dean said. “Whether it’s competing with Venturini Motorsports in ARCA, DLP Motorsports in Late Model competition, or the other racing efforts we have planned for this season.

“We are working hard behind the scenes to return to full-time status, hopefully in 2023.”

In addition to Mobil 1, Dean Custom Air, Folds of honor, IMPACT, Kick Industries and WileyX will serve as associate marketing partners for Dean’s 58th ARCA career debut.
