Frankie Muniz has taken his racing career to the next level after making his ARCA debut in the Menards Series at Daytona International Speedway. In the 80-lap race, with 40 drivers competing, Muniz pushed his way back from 24th to finish in 11th place, just shy of the Top 10. The first place finisher was driver Gren Van Alst.
Muniz celebrated his achievement in the race on Twitter, saying that he was “making my dream a reality”. The race broadcast announcers also praised Muniz for doing a “masterful job” avoiding a potentially serious crash.
Racing is nothing new for Muniz, who has shown an interest in the sport often in the years since starring in “Malcolm in the Middle”. Last month, the actor decided to switch careers completely, pursuing racing full-time. His results in the ARCA race suggest that he may have a bright future in the sport.
