Chad Bryant Racing is growing and building in a positive direction throughout their first two years as one of the top contending teams in the ARCA Menards Series. Chad Bryant and crew chief Paul Andrews are continuing on with the goals, mentality, and determination they brought to Cunnigham Motorsports while working for them up until Bryant took over the company heading into the 2018 season.
The Cunningham Motorsports era brought the 2016 ARCA Menards Championship Chase Briscoe, who is now racing the NASCAR Xfinity Series. With Chad Bryant Racing they are competing with two different prongs with one of their cars driven by second-year driver Joe Graf, Jr behind the wheel driving the No. 77 EAT SLEEP RACE, Ford. The other machine is the No. 22 with drivers splitting seat time, highlighted by Ty Majeski and 16-year-old upstart Corey Heim.

Multiple cars were strong throughout the ARCA Pensacola 200 presented by Inspectra Thermal Solutions in the ARCA Menards Series return to Five Flags Speedway, but a debris caution with around 40 laps to go changed the game as several leaders were caught a lap down.
Chandler Smith returns to his ARCA Menards Series pole-winning ways, setting a fast time of 16.990 to start up front in his No. 20 Craftsman Toyota Camry for the ARCA Pensacola 200 presented by Inspectra Thermal Solutions. Sitting to his outside is the only car that was faster than him in practice, his Venturini Motorsports teammate Michael Self in the Sinclair Oils No. 25.
“It means a lot, especially for this place. I feel like it’s going to be whoever gets out front, sets the pace for everybody, and that’s how the rest of the field is gonna end up pacing. So I’m really glad I’m sitting out front and I’m definitely gonna be able to set the pace.”
