Austin Cindric adds ARCA at Iowa to his diverse racing portfolio


Austin Cindric will add a start in the ARCA Series next weekend at Iowa Speedway to his already diverse racing portfolio, with Cunningham Motorsports.

The 16-year-old son of Team Penske president Tim Cindric adds the July 17 stock car race to his schedule this season, which is packed between the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge in one of Multimatic Motorsports’ new Ford Shelby GT350R-Cs and the Red Bull Global Rallycross GRC Lites series.

“It will be great to work with an experienced ARCA team like Cunningham Motorsports and I’m really excited to have the opportunity to race a stock car for the first time,” Cindric said in a release.

“Iowa Speedway is one of the most challenging short ovals in the country. I have a lot to learn and I really appreciate how much effort it has taken, by so many people, to make this happen.”

Cindric races at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this weekend in the Continental Tire Challenge race before heading to Iowa for ARCA the next weekend, then onto Detroit for the next GRC Lites weekend at the end of the month.
