Massachusetts racer John Lowinski-Loh is set to make his second ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start of the year in the Scott 150 at Chicagoland Speedway this Saturday. He is rejoining Lira Motorsports, after kicking off the season with the team at Daytona in the Lucas Oil 200 in February.
This will be the first race for Lira Motorsports third team car, the number 38, after running two full-time entries through the first nine races of the 2015 ARCA Racing season. The team also has a fourth car, the number 36, which it may run in select events later this year.
In John’s start for the team in February, he qualified 22nd in the 40 car field, with no owner points to rely on. Unfortunately, he fell victim to a broken oil line eight laps into the race. After repairs were made, he rejoined the field several laps down. He raced strong and incident free for the rest of the event, running lap times consistently on pace with the race leaders. He ultimately finished in the 33rd position.
In John’s only other career ARCA Series start, he raced to a 10th place finish at Kansas Speedway in 2014.
His car for Chicagoland will carry primary sponsorship from Auto Go. A complete automotive repair service for foreign and domestic cars and trucks, Auto Go has been serving Milford, Massachusetts with auto repair and maintenance services since 1985.
