Bill McAnally Racing boasts four talented young drivers who will hit the track at Phoenix ISM Raceway Friday, March 6 for the first ARCA Menard’s Series Showdown Event of the 2020 race season.
Gracie Trotter, Jesse Love, Lawless Alan, and Giovanni Scelzi will all be competing in the General Tire 150 on the one mile oval at Phoenix. This is the first of ten special races that are designated as “showdown events” on the ARCA Menard’s twenty-race series schedule. These events are considered a series within a series.
Trotter, Love and Scelzi began their ARCA Racing careers this year with the season opener at New Smyrna Speedway in February. Lawless Alan joined the team two weeks ago at The Bullring at Las Vegas.
All four of the rookie BMR drivers are slated to run the full ARCA West schedule this year. ARCA West is the west’s oldest stock car racing tour. In addition to the west series, the four rookies will also be competing in other select ARCA races. Racing in this Friday’s event will provide the drivers with valuable experience at ISM Raceway in preparation for the ARCA West Championship race in November.
The ARCA race is part of a bigger NASCAR weekend at ISM Raceway. The NASCAR XFINITY cars will compete there on Saturday, then the NASCAR Cup Series will compete on Sunday.
