Washington State native Brittney Zamora will make her ARCA Menards Series debut in the Feb. 13 season-opening Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona.
Rette Jones Racing (RJR) announced Saturday that Brittney Zamora will race their No. 30 Ford Fusion. ARCA championship-winning crew chief and RJR co-owner Mark Rette will serve as Zamora’s crew chief for her debut.
“I am really excited to be joining Rette Jones Racing for my first superspeedway race,” said Zamora. “It is going to be a great experience and I am going to learn a lot. Daytona is a track I have always dreamed of racing at.
Square1 Flex, VISA, Pit Road Pals and Davis Groupe Promotions will serve as Zamora’s partners for the Lucas Oil 200.
Zamora scored two poles, six top-5 finishes and 10 top-10 finishes, en route to a fifth-place points finish with Bill McAnally Racing. She earned a career-best third twice at Tucson (Ariz.) Speedway and Evergreen (Wash.) Speedway.
Zamora burst onto the racing scene with success in the Northwest Super Late Model Series in 2017 and 2018 and became the first female to win a championship in the series.
She joined Jefferson Racing in 2020 but the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic caused her to piece races together instead. Now, Zamora has a chance to win at Daytona.
“I am confident in Mark Rette, the RJR team and myself to be successful at Daytona,” Zamora said. “If luck stays on our side, I know we will have a strong chance to be in contention for a podium and possibly even a win.”
Rette Jones Racing topped the speed charts in the January 2020 testing with female driver Dominique Van Wieringen and contended for a top-five finish before being swept into an accident nearly halfway in the February race.
In 2017, RJR also finished second in the ARCA season-opener with team co-owner Terry Jones who led 25 of the event’s 80 laps.
