Daytona, FL — John Wes Townley came to the NextEra Energy Resources 250 having won last Saturday’s ARCA Racing Series race from the pole at Daytona International Speedway. All indications were good for the young driver’s inaugural race with Red Horse Racing behind the wheel of the No. 7 Zaxby’s Toyota Tundra.
