Martinsburg native Christian Rose is set to race at All American Speedway in Roseville, California this Saturday in the ARCA Menard’s West Series.
After ranking in the top ten at his ARCA Menard’s Series debut in Las Vegas on September 23, Rose looks to continue his success in the ARCA circuit. The 10th place finish earned Rose 34 points in the ARCA Menard’s West Series standings. Noted as a “rookie to keep an eye on” by several racing publications, Rose turned heads at his impressive debut.
“I was really proud to get a top ten finish under my belt in my ARCA debut,” said Rose. “We have had a little over two weeks now to review what we can do this weekend to improve. I’m really grateful to my team for all of their hard work in getting me here and keeping me going.”
Rose brought excitement to the state of West Virginia by unveiling his new sponsor, the West Virginia Department of Tourism, just days before his ARCA Menard’s Series debut.
The West Virginia Tourism car stood out among the other race cars thanks to its thematic West Virginia wrapping, featuring beloved West Virginia scenery such as the New River Gorge Bridge.
“It truly is a blessing to represent my home state on a national level,” said Rose. “West Virginia Tourism has been a tremendous supporter in getting me where I am today. Our car looks fantastic, and I hope people around the country will see why we call ourselves Almost Heaven.”
Rose will race in the 150 lap NAPA AutoCare 150 presented by Berco Redwood at All American Speedway on Saturday, October 9 at 10 p.m. ET. The race will be live streamed through TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold and will be re-aired on October 14 at 5 p.m. on NBCSN.
