CCM Racing is excited to announce that 17-year-old Oklahoma native Colton Collins will make his ARCA Racing Series debut this weekend at Elko Speedway in Elko New Market, Minnesota.
Collins, who is a regular crew member for CCM Racing, will pilot at No. 7 Chevrolet at Menards 250 this weekend with sponsorship from Safari Joe’s H2O, a Tulsa-based water and adventure park about 20 miles east of Collins town in Mannford. .
Much of Collins ’career background comes from quarter midgets, who have won numerous championship and race wins across the states of Oklahoma and Midwestern United States throughout his career. He recently competed in Baby Grand and Super Trucks classes at Bolivar Speedway in Missouri.
Joining a major stock car racing series like ARCA is the fulfillment of a long -held dream for him.
“I’m excited to make my ARCA debut this weekend,” Collins said. “I have been waiting for an opportunity like this for a long time and I hope I can take advantage of it. Thanks to CCM Racing and team owner Eric Caudell for the opportunity and to Safari Joe’s H2O for coming, along with our other partners, RedTide Canopies and Coble Enterprises.

Collins isn’t the only one to be promoted from “crew member” this weekend, as New Mexico native Kyle Totman will make his crew chiefing debut for No. 7 team. Totman first joined CCM Racing in the summer of 2019 and, like Collins, spent many days and nights on the track and at the team’s race shops in Oklahoma and Kansas.
You can tune in to watch Collins and Totman in their debut roles this Saturday, June 25. Menards 250 at Elko Speedway will begin at 9:30 PM ET with coverage on MAVTV, FloRacing, and ARCARacing.com.
