Sean Hingorani Goes Back To Back In Arca West With Venturini Motorsports

Sean Hingorani, a rising star in the world of stock car racing, has done it again. Last weekend, he went back-to-back in the ARCA Menards West Series with a thrilling win at Kern County Raceway Park in the NAPA Auto Parts BlueDEF 150 in Bakersfield, California.

Hingorani, a 16-year-old from Newport Beach, Ca, has been turning heads in the racing world ever since he burst onto the scene last year. In just his second full year of competition, he has already established himself as one of the top drivers in the ARCA Menards West, a stock car racing series that features some of the most talented drivers in the country.

Coming off his first win at Irwindale just a few weeks ago, Hingorani's victory at Kern County was just as special for him and Venturini Motorsports' Monon Rahman. This was the talented VMS engineer's first as a crew chief and the second of the day for Venturini after Jesse Love Jr. went to victory lane earlier in the afternoon at Talladega.

The race was a grueling 150 laps around the banked half-mile oval, and Hingorani had to battle some tough competition to come out on top.

When the field went green, Hingorani found himself with a black flag penalty for narrowly beating pole sitter Landen Lewis to the line. This put Hingorani a lap and a half down after a stop-and-go penalty thru the pits. Moving up from the back of the pack, he had a lot of ground to make up on the leaders. But as the race wore on, he began to find his groove, and soon he was able to race his way back onto the lead lap.

At the halfway break, Hingorani found himself inside the top ten with seventy-five laps remaining. Once the field got back underway, Hingorani was dominant, racing his way to the front and never looking back.

After the race, Hingorani was understandably thrilled with his performance. "I knew it was going to be tough getting back through the field,” Hingorani said. “But we did it. [My team] gave me a rocket ship today. Everyone who’s here — I can’t thank them enough. This thing was so fast" he said. "This is just an incredible feeling. To come out here and win back-to-back races against such tough competition is just amazing."

Hingorani's win at Kern County cements his status as one of the rising stars of stock car racing. But for Hingorani, it's just another step on his journey toward greatness. With his talent, drive, and determination, there's no telling how far he can go in this sport.
