Young’s Motorsports announced Thursday that Toni Breidinger will compete for the team in a limited ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule, in 2021, beginning with the Feb. 13 ARCA season-opener at Daytona.
Breidinger will make her first ARCA Menards Series start since 2018 where she competed in three races, earning a career-best 10th place finish in her series debut at Madison International Speedway.
“I’m very thankful for this opportunity to continue the next steps of my racing career with Young’s Motorsports,” said Breidinger. “It’s going to be a busy year of competition in ARCA Menards Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, but I feel like the program that we have assembled at Young’s Motorsports will be influential in completing our goals and setting the path for the future.”
When Breidinger makes her Truck Series debut with Young’s Motorsports in 2021, she will become the first-ever Arabic-American female driver to participate in any NASCAR national series.
“We are thrilled to add Toni Breidinger to our Young’s Motorsports portfolio in 2021,” said Young’s Motorsports team principal Tyler Young. “She is not only motivated but determined to make her season a successful one. We know that she can go to Daytona next week and be competitive and contend to become the first ARCA Menards Series national series female winner.”
A record 19-time female USAC winner, Breidinger shifted her attention from dirt to asphalt and most recently finished fourth in the Carolina Pro Late Model Series in 2020 with DLP Motorsports.
A detailed schedule for Breidinger’s races in the No. 02 Young’s Motorsports ARCA Chevrolet and No. 82 Chevrolet Silverado NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chevrolet will be announced at a later date.
Young’s Motorsports will also field a No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado for Spencer Boyd, who will be entering his third season with the team in 2021.
