Twenty-nine year-old Michael Self has achieved much success since he began running the majority of his races with Venturini Motorsports and the Toyota family in 2018. The Park City, Utah-native got his start at age 10 in the go-kart ranks and earned many victories. By the time Self received his drivers’ license, he had multiple state karting championships to his name. Self then went the route of open wheel racing – driving to multiple wins in the Skip Barber Racing Series before turning his attention fully to NASCAR.

In the first race of a part-time schedule in 2018, the partnership between Self, Venturini Motorsports and Toyota proved to be one to watch as Self drove to victory at Daytona International Speedway before adding a second win at Chicagoland Speedway. In 2019, Self earned a full-time opportunity with Venturini Motorsports and added four wins – including a victory at Michigan International Speedway – and led the point standings for the majority of the season before coming up just short of the ARCA Menards Series title to his teammate Christian Eckes.

Self is back in 2020 as the veteran leader of Venturini Motorsports – and has started his run to a championship with a dominating performance at the season-opening race at Daytona. He leads the point standings heading into this weekend’s event at Phoenix Raceway.
