March 14, 2017 (Concord, NC) – Announced today, 19-year old Natalie Decker from Eagle River, WI will join Venturini Motorsports (VMS) for three races during the 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season. Complementing VMS’ already stout driver lineup, Decker, with sponsorship support from N|29 Capital Partners, will make her ARCA Series debut in consecutive race weekends starting with Toledo Speedway (May 21), Elko Speedway (June 3) and Pocono Raceway (June 9).
“This is definitely the biggest step in my racing career so far,” said Decker. “Racing takes sponsorship support, and it takes hearing a lot of No’s before you find a Yes. I’m so blessed and thankful to ‘N Twenty-Nine Capital Partners’ (N|29) for believing in me and providing this opportunity to compete with Venturini Motorsports.”
Natalie Decker has a packed 2017 racing schedule planned and couldn’t be more excited about what the upcoming race season holds in store. Along with racing at local Wisconsin tracks like State Park Speedway, Golden Sands Speedway and Marshfield Motor Speedway, the 19-year-old driver will compete full time on the ARCA Midwest Tour.
“I’m really looking forward to running the ARCA Midwest Tour,” Decker said. “It is an awesome group of people and many people are involved”
Natalie Decker’s 2016 race season didn’t come to a close the way she hoped. Making her second straight trip to New Smyrna Speedway (FL) for the 51st Annual Governor’s Cup, bad luck plagued the Eagle River, WI driver and her Nason Motorsports team right from the get go.
“We hit a streak of bad luck starting on our road trip to the Governor’s Cup in Tennessee with our motorhome breaking down in the mountains,” Deckers said. “My spotter, Kyle Wolosek, and I did manage to make it to the track in time by getting ourselves a rental car and making it in time for Friday’s practice.”
After a strong second-place run at Dells Raceway Park (WI) a few weeks ago, Natalie Decker decided her 2016 race season wasn’t finished just yet. The Eagle River, WI driver has teamed up with Nason Motorsports and will travel south to run the 51st Annual Florida Governor’s Cup 200 at New Smyrna Speedway (FL).
“After the successful race finish at the Falloween 150, Fred Nason mentioned Governors Cup as a possibility for me to race once again with their team,” Decker said. “The next step was to raise the funds and I had amazing support come through from fans to make it happen. The Nason Motorsports 04 hood will be sporting their names.”
