SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the third year running, Sinclair Oil Corporation will sponsor ARCA
Racing Series driver Michael Self, expanding support in the new year to
all 20 races of the 2019 season. “He’s our home-state guy,” said Jack
Barger, vice president of Marketing and Supply for Sinclair Oil, “we’ve
all loved seeing success for a fellow Utahan and look forward to lots of

Self started the 2018 season with a dramatic win during the ARCA season
opener at Daytona International Speedway. During his ARCA career, he’s
earned three wins, 11 top-five finishes and a Pole Award in just 19

Self spent his early days racing go-karts, competing in the world
championship at age 16 and ranking as one of America’s top three go-kart
drivers under age 18. As Self advanced to full-size stock car racing, it
seemed only natural to team with Sinclair Oil and Venturini Motorsports.

Over the last four decades Venturini Motorsports has emerged as one of
the leading professional motorsports organizations in the country.
Strategically aligned with Toyota Racing Development, Venturini
Motorsports is widely known for its success and tenure competing in the
ARCA Racing Series. A family-operated organization, patriarch Tony
Venturini (posthumous) fueled the group’s passion for speed when he
began racing in Chicago during the 1950s while owning and operating a
Sinclair Oil service station.

“I’m so excited to have the opportunity to compete for an ARCA
championship with Sinclair Oil,” said Michael Self, driver of the No. 25
Sinclair Oil Toyota. “Sinclair has been an incredible partner, and the
fans have loved seeing DINO on the track. I can’t wait to see what we
accomplish together this season.”
