– This weekends 200-lap race will be Hocevar’s first career start at Salem Speedway in an ARCA Menards Series car. – KBR Development tested with Hocevar at Salem Speedway on March 26.

– This is the third race of the 2019 season for KBR Development, competing full time with the ARCA Menards Series. Salem Speedway is 0.555-miles in length, with 33 degrees of banking in the corners. The race will air live on MAVTV at 2:00 p.m. ET.

“We tested and I was very comfortable with the track, and we were able to work on our long run balance. We have a few ideas to get our KBR Development Chevrolet better, so I’m real excited to get back this weekend with a whole field of cars on track and see where exactly we stack up.”
