"ARCA's Top Team, Earning Winning Results for
America's next Great Stock Car Racers"

Cunningham Motorsports Throughout its history Cunningham Motorsports has demonstrated a track tested ability to develop young talent and has become a well-respected, race team under the vision of team principals, Kerry Scherer & Briggs Cunningham and the NASCAR Championship Winning Direction of Crew Chief Paul Andrews.

As the official driver development partner for Penske Racing, Cunningham is the results driven, no-nonsense team in the ARCA series where racers go to gain the seat time and experience necessary to help them climb the next steps up the motorsports ladder.

Proof of this is that recent Cunningham graduates, Alex Bowman, Parker Kligerman and Dakoda Armstrong each earned ARCA Rookie of the Year Awards and all three are now competing successfully in NASCAR's upper echelons.

Cunningham Motorsports Among other top notch racers who have developed and honed their skills at Cunningham are Chase Miller, Scott Lagasse Jr., Tim Andrews, Frank Kimmel, Steven Wallace and when it was time for his NASCAR debut, ex-Formula 1 race winner, Juan Pablo Montoya. During this season, current NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver, Ryan Blaney ran three races with the team as a means to gain experience on race tracks where he had little previous race time.

The 2013 ARCA season saw the Cunningham organization return to a two car effort as Tom Hessert returned to the team, after finishing 3rd in the 2010 driver's championship with the team. Hessert completed the 2013 season 4th in championship points. The team's second car had 10 different drivers throughout the season, including Austin Wayne Self, Anderson Bowen, Blaney and Scott Lagasse. The organization also moved into the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Series as Self competed in six races, while Bowen raced in two.

The 2014 racing season is shaping up as another interesting year with Austin Self announcing that he will compete for the ARCA Series Rookie of the Year, as well as the championship. There are a lot of fun things in the works for the second Cunningham stayed tuned for updates.
