Zachary Tinkle is returning to Andy Hillenburg’s Fast Track Racing in the ARCA Menards Series East Championship for the 2024 season. Todd Parrott will once again be on top of the box as his crew chief. Tinkle will continue to race the flagship #11 car.

Tinkle commented, “I can’t wait to get back to the track and build on what Andy, Todd, and I started in 2023 with the Fast Track Racing team. I learned so much and we really came together as a team. I’m thankful for the opportunity and another year with everyone in ARCA.”

In 2023, Zachary placed fourth in the ARCA Menards East Series Championship in the #11 Fast Track Racing car. It was Tinkle’s first full season with the team after running part time with Fast Track Racing in 2022 in the ARCA Menards Series. NASCAR® Cup  Series Championship-winning  crew chief, Todd Parrott, was paired with Tinkle for the first time in the 2023 season.

When asked about the season, Andy Hillenburg reflected, “I’m looking forward to this season with Zachary. His confidence is up as well as mine for good reasons. Zachary and Todd Parrott’s experience from last year will make us a lot stronger off the trailer and that will translate to better finishes for our team. 2024 is going to be fun with the 11 car.”
