Charlotte, NC (April 29, 2016) – After scoring a podium finish in his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut one week ago, Dalton Sargeant and the Venturini Motorsports Toyota Racing Development Camry powered by Windows 10 team turned in another impressive performance placing sixth in Friday’s General Tire 200 at Talladega Superspeedway. Sargeant, who qualified 19th, maintained his position during the early stages of the race but kept his composure and worked with his spotter and crew chief Billy Venturini to draft his way towards the front. During the final stages of the race Sargeant competed for the top spot as the lead pack of cars raced down the Alabama Gang Superstretch on the back end of the 2.66 mile superspeedway. Without the help needed to clear the lead car he slipped back ultimately finishing in the sixth position.
“Great learning experience for me today with a solid top-10 finish. I’m just thankful to have this opportunity and to have such great equipment underneath me. I struggled a bit throughout the day - starting with qualifying towards the rear of the field, but I slowly worked my way up, caught a couple of good breaks, and had a chance to race up front near the end of the race. Nothing at all to be ashamed about. I’ll be a lot more prepared the next time I come to Talladega. I learned a lot, and working with Billy Venturini was a huge help in my first attempt at a plate race. He’s got so much racing knowledge and experience at these types of tracks which is really helpful at this stage in my career.”
