Fort Kent driver lands full-season deal in ARCA Racing Series

Less than four months after he was dropped by Hattori Racing Enterprises while racing on the K and N Pro Series East circuit, Austin Theriault is back in the driver’s seat.

The Fort Kent native, who also has driven in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series, has been signed to run 20 ARCA races next year, according to a statement released on Tuesday.

Theriault and crew chief Donnie Richeson will team up to represent North Carolina-based Ken Schrader Racing during the 2017 season.

One of the sponsors will be Cross Insurance, which has an office in Bangor.

“It’s a huge opportunity for me to be able to run my first-ever full season at a national level with KSR,” said Theriault in the statement. “With the support of Kenny and Donnie, I believe we can challenge for wins race to race and be in contention for a championship. Returning to tracks such as Daytona, Iowa and Michigan will allow me to build on my previous experiences. Driving at historic places like Salem and DuQuoin for the first time will be fun.”
