Cram Racing Enterprises Solidify ARCA Driver Lineup for Talladega and Charlotte

By Christian Koelle, Staff Writer

Cram Racing Enterprises have announced they will field entries at both Talladega and Charlotte. 

ARCA veteran Benny Chastain will return to the organization at Talladega. Chastain piloted the No. 94 for Cram Racing Enterprises at Daytona in February to a 20th place finish. The return marks his return to Talladega Superspeedway. He hasn’t started a race at Talladega since 2014 and has six total starts to his credit in the past.

Chris Hacker was expected to make his ARCA Menards Series debut at Daytona but a positive COVID-19 test sidelined him during the important ARCA test at Daytona. Hacker will now make his ARCA Menards Series debut at the Charlotte Motor Speedway next month. 

Chris Hacker Not Allowed to Race at Daytona After Missing ARCA Test Due to Positive COVID-19 Test

Hacker made his sole ARCA Menards Series West start last season with Fast Track Racing at Phoenix finishing 15th. He was expected to test with Dawson Cram and Cram Enterprises. However, after receiving the positive test, he was forced to quarantine ultimately resulting in him missing the crucial test session.

Cram Racing Enterprises didn’t compete in the second race of the season at Phoenix. Daytona was the only other ARCA Menards Series event that the team has competed in this season. Cram Racing Enterprises has competed in four of the five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season with Dawson Cram piloting the truck in three races and Cody Erickson in the most recent race at Bristol.

Christian returns to Kickin' the Tires again in 2023 for his third straight season. He will mainly serve as a photographer for the organization while also being the main ARCA Menards Series writer. He currently plans to do at least 40 races across the three NASCAR National Series, ARCA Menards Series, IndyCar, and make his NHRA debut at Bristol in June. Christian's favorite race tracks include Nashville Superspeedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Barber Motorsports Park, Martinsville Speedway, and Iowa Speedway among other tracks. One of Christian's dreams is for NASCAR or ARCA to return to Memphis International Raceway.
