Taylor Ferns to drive in ARCA race at Pocono

Taylor Ferns on Friday makes her fourth start in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards when she competes in the ModSpace 150 at Pocono Raceway.
The Shelby Township resident will drive the No. 55 Motor City Auto Transport Toyota stock car for Venturini Motorsports.
The 17-year-old will become the youngest female driver to start a race in the top ARCA series, according to the VMS Web site.
“My first start on an intermediate track is going to be a learning process,” Ferns said. “I’m so used to the technical aspects of short-track racing. Carrying those high speeds into the corners here at Pocono with the heavier car will be the biggest difference and challenge for me this weekend. However, coming from open wheel I’m prepared and confident for what’s to come.”
The race will be televised at 5:15 p.m. on SPEED television.
