Sargeant isn't a new face to the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards he's just new to the blue oval brand and now with Cunningham Motorsports being a development program for Ford Performance, Sargeant is the newest driver who will look to make his way up the stair steps with the goal being in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series with Stewart Haas Racing, Team Penske, Roush Fenway Racing, or Richard Petty Motorsports. With drivers like Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, etc. which is a list of seasoned veterans in the Motorsports industry.
With Dalton behind the wheel though it sets up what could be another season of domination by Cunningham Motorsports. Dalton isn't chasing any firsts this season except for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Championship or his first career pole, He gained his first career victory this season at Berlin. In 15 races last season, Dalton gained 10 Top-5 finishes, 12 Top-10 finishes, and he even led 119 laps.
Sargeant will certainly be one of the favorites for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Champion in 2017 but he will have to compete against drivers like Riley Herbst who will be driving for Joe Gibbs Racing's new ARCA Racing Series team in 2017 along with Justin Fontaine, A.J. Fike, and Gus Dean. The 2017 ARCA Racing Series season will certainly one to keep a watch on and be sure to stay tuned to The Motorsports News Source for all of your latest ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards News!
