Goals can be attained as long as determination and will are behind passion.

That’s what development driver Josh Reeves is working on as he will strap into the seat of a Carter 2 Motorsports racecar on Saturday, Sept. 13 in the ARCA Series race at Salem Speedway.

The Bassett, Virginia native will be making his debut in the series in what Reeves hopes to be the beginning of a career in the upper brackets of racing.

He recently completed a successful test at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, North Carolina and will be using what he learned there to apply to the race at Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana this week.

“The test went well and it was great to be in the car. I learned a lot and I’m looking forward to the race this Saturday,” commented Reeves.

While Reeves’ skills behind the wheel have attracted attention to gain him this ARCA debut, this opportunity wouldn’t be possible without the Crowdfunding campaign,

“I thought I’d give it a try and I was able to get the funding I needed to pursue this dream in a short amount of time. It was amazing.”

The Crowdfunding option has been successful for other drivers looking to get funding necessary to realize their aspirations of getting into racing.

“This is what I’ve been working for and I’ll be doing what I can to get through the field Saturday night. We plan to complete all laps and just go for it,” smiled Reeves.

The first practice on Saturday will be from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. and the final 45-minute practice is set to begin at 1:45 p.m. Qualifying is at 4 p.m. ET. The 200-lap Federated Car Care ARCA Fall Classic will begin at 7:15 p.m. ET at Salem Speedway.
